2016 Outback Pioneer AVH-W4400NEX Camera Overlay

Post by spadelizard » Tue Oct 02, 2018 5:56 pm

I noticed when preparing to flash that Advanced Camera Features are not available for this radio. Does that mean there will not be an overlay/ backup camera lines displaying how close you are to an object? If so, is that a limitation of the radio or current RR fw? Will there be a fw updated for the RR that would enable?

Advanced camera features are only available on Kenwood. Kenwood radios support auto-switching between front and rear cameras, and dynamic parking lines when you're reversing.

This can be a bit confusing when you're flashing; You will still get a normal backup camera image, and if the Pioneer radio you have gives you static lines, it should show those too.

Understood and thank you for the quick reply.
So is it safe to say that the backup lines are more of a function of the head unit and not the camera itself?

Also, if anyone has a pioneer radio with a factory backup camera and can respond if they still have parking lines, it would be very much appreciated.

I wanted to provide an update: The camera DOES in fact have the parking lines.

I swapped HU for a Kenwood because I wanted the extra features like parking overlay.
Once powering up the Kenwood I saw parking lines that looked like what I had. I went into the settings and turned on the HU parking lines and ended up with two sets.

This is confirmation that a 2016 Outback Limited with the HK 7" display, the camera DOES in fact have the parking lines.

If only I could get a combo of these two HUs.

I hooked up the W4400NEX to my 2015 Legacy (same as 2015 Outback) and I do not have the lines or advanced camera features, but the camera itself works great with the RR/SU2 and the Pioneer Head unit.
