Kenwood DNX996xr Front Camera Interupt

Post by switchblade » Fri Oct 11, 2019 9:18 pm

Hi, I have a 2009 Dodge challenger and I just upgraded the head unit to the new Kenwood DNX996XR and upgraded my Maestro RR to the 512mb version. The steering wheel controls are working great again, the only issue I am having now is with the front camera. Whenever I slow the car down to a stop the head unit screen pops up with the front camera display for a few seconds. I did some experimenting and ran the head unit without the Maestro RR and that issue goes away. So, it has to be something with the Maestro causing it. I checked in the head unit settings and can’t find any settings for it. What could be causing this?

hi there...just to be clear, you don't have a front camera installed, correct? You just get a black screen coming up when you slow down (like it would be showing the front camera if you had one)?

In the OEM or Vehicle settings section of the Kenwood menu you will find a Maestro settings section. in there, you will go to advanced camera features/camera settings/front camera/low speed trigger. in that section you can turn the feature on/off and adjust other advanced camera settings.

Unfortunately the engineers were not able to get the issue resolved yet. I will let you know once they give me an answer to what the fix is.

that works :)

ok, so let's do this, let's take the RR out ans reflash it but flash it as a totally different vehicle, say a 2009 Nissan Frontier. once that is done go ahead and reflash it as your vehicle. When you are going through the flash for your vehicle in the OEM Systems to retain section you will now see Advanced Camera Features...make sure that is checked, and continue with the flash.

once you get everything back together in the car you can go into the AV section of the Kenwood radio, then into the Vehicle Features, then into the Camera section. now in here is where you can turn off the low speed trigger, that is what is causing the front camera to come on when going slow.

let me know if you have any issues and if it works fine for you.

Ok, great thanks you, I will try that as soon as I get home today. I don't remember seeing an option to retain advanced camera features though, I'll take a picture of the options it gives me.
