Help installing Roadtop MMI NBT EVO

In the final steps of installing the kit and I'm having difficulty getting the i drive screen back in place. The cable supplied by Roadtop that goes from the mmi box to the screen has a right angle connector but it does not face down, but to the right. There does not appear to be any space for it to fit properly with the new cable installed. The other end is a straight connector so I don't believe it would fit if I reversed it. Am I missing something, or did I receive the wrong cable?
Thx, Don

Update- Roadtop promptly sent out the correct cable and the front & rear cameras are working well which is the primary reason for installing the MMI box. The dynamic guide lines are a nice feature, thought I might have to code them but there's a setting to turn on/off from the mmi setup screen. Will work on pairing my Samsung S10 when I have some more time.

Hi - assuming this is an aftermarket front camera? Could you tell me when does the front camera turn on, and how long it stays on for? Is it automatic or you need to enter it via the MMI menu?

Sorry for the delay responding. The front camera comes on automatically after switching out of reverse and its adjustable as to how long it stays on. I have it set to 10 sec. It can also be turned on from the i drive knob manually.

Backup without MMI

Does the backup camera only work in MMI mode? I was hoping it also works in iDrive mode but??????
