These guys retrofitted both a Cruise Control and rear parking sensors on my old Golf TDI..

They did a stunning job, really was a OEM fit, couldn't tell the difference.

Maybe worth giving them a call about a T-Cross camera.

I was thinking about this too. Can a camera be retrofitted? An original one from the dealer.
Yes is the answer at least one supplier is doing it. Not cheap, if ordering new probably cheaper to have factory fitted option! Link to YouTube video with company’s website listed.

Cameras can be retrofitted but it will probably cost about twice as much as the option and will require coding using a VAGCOM

Well, I have a First Edition, so I couldn’t choose my extras. But a rear camera would be nice to have, thinking of adding it later.

I’ve just purchased an R line demonstration model the only thing it didn’t have that I wanted was the reversing camera so they are fitting one for me so yes it is possible 😃

Hi all I bought the demonstration model t cross R line and it didn’t have a rear camera so they fitted one before I collected it 😊

For anybody thinking about fitting a rear view camera as a post sale addition be aware that the kit is currently on the infamous “back order” ie none available just now. Our dealer managed to obtain one from another dealership in their group and we had it fitted last week.
Works pretty well but disappointed to see that the outer pair of lines don’t seem to turn with the angle of the steering so they seem a bit pointless (unless I’ve missed something).
