Speed pulse and reverse for headunit

Tried posting this in the ICE section but its not very lively in there!

Fitted a Pioneer f40 headhunt with the connects 2 interface. It has pink, blue, green and purple/white wires extra.
I phoned connect2 support and they told me that the pink is the speed pulse, purple/white is the reverse, green is handbrake and blue is remote.

Tried connecting each of these apart from the remote to the headunit but only the handbrake signal is working! No speed pulse and no auto switching to the reverse camera.

Would anyone have a idea where I'm going wrong?

Speed pulse and reverse for headunit

I've the f-30 unit (essentially the same with earlier software).
As far as I remember it just went through the canbus for the speed pulse (got my f30 off a forum member so was pre wired). I've yet to wire up my rear view camera though, is it all wired up the other end?

Either way, if you use the search function in the ice section, there's a few threads on the same issue. Essentially it should go through the canbus.

You also might find avic411 quite useful for removing the nag screen and upgrading the maps
Getting rid of that stupid 'press ok' screen is a liberating feeling!
