Back Up camera

Is it just me or has anyone else noticed that the backup camera on a 2014 GC Ltd is low definition? I had a 2011 GC before I Traded it for this one and I found that the image when backing was of much higher quality.

Re: Back Up camera

My opinion would be that the camera has always been low resolution. The screens on 2011-2013 are low resolution, which in a way makes the picture more crisp. Using the same low resolution camera with the much higher resolution 8.4" screen in 2014+ results in the camera appearing even lower resolution than it did on the previous screen.

Much like standard definition on a tube TV looks better than on HD TV. There's a certain "blur" that occurs on the lower resolution screens that almost makes it appear higher res than it really is.

Re: Back Up camera

its also still "skipping" - the last update helped for a bit.. now its crap again. I would also like to say.. I can purchase an HD webcam for $10... why they could not have made the screen and b/u camera quality better is beyond me.
