2 sets seem to match my Volvo's configuration, i don't see any difference?

Solution

If you use the menu structure in our website (Choose Volvo type and modelyear in the top-menu and then for example 'reversing camera' in the left menu, you'll end up with 2 sets, looking almost the same.

 

There is a difference though; the camera type.

There are basically 2 types of camera's available for most Volvo's.
(of only 1 is given available then its safe to assume the other one won't fit!)

Licenseplate-light-camera:

- Replaces the licenseplate light.
- light-bulb is moved over to camera (so there's still light from that side on the licenseplate!)
- does not require drilling in outside panels of the car
- plastic housing
- quite visible since it needs to stick out a bit
- installs fastest and most easy.

 

Mini-cam:

- Is mounted generally on the position where original camera's would be fit as well
- Metal housing (so very strong)
- Requires drilling in outside panel of the car
- Very small so not very visible

 

Are there technical differences / wiring differences?

- No, lens type and sensor are the same
- wiring is exactly the same
