Rearview Camera

Recommended Posts

Anyone like to share their rear reversing camera view on here.  Recently mines is showing a large section of the tailgate( the white section along bottom of screen). Pretty certain that wasn't there previously.  Thanks in advance.

That's normal. There is a discussion on August 3, 2017 on the forum about this already (Topic = "Rear camera alignment").

If you have a tow bar fitted, you can see the ball clearly. There is also a PLUS on the display to zoom in/out which helps when your coupling up.

Pretty much exactly what mine looks like, reg plate in the edges of the screen.

Really wish they had a spray on the back like the front camera as this time of year it gets so dirty!

I totally agree with that. Probably more useful (and used) than the front camera!

I just run my thumb over the lens every time I shut the boot.
Keeps most of the crud / condensation off the camera.
My car does pick up a load of dirt on the back though, at least it shows the spoiler is producing the correct airflow though.

Always walk to the drivers door round the back, so a quick wipe before I back off the drive, keeps it cleanish!

Pity they couldn't come up with a tiny wiper blade that operates when reversing and when wipers are engaged.

Know that feeling all to well... still a 4 hour clean today and it’s all shiny again! 

And I can see what I’m about to reverse into too lol!

You have a spray on your front camera?  I don't even have that on my Adaptive LED headlights?! 😕

Front camera should have a little thing that pops out when you use the windscreen washers (if you have the front camera of course). The headlights whether halogen or LED don't have washers

Well look at that!  So that just begs the question why did they not do that for the rear one?!

Don't suppose they thought the rear one would get covered in dead flies and other insect road kill !! 😂😂
