Re: Backup camera video

My camera was fine on 13.19. I updated to 13.38, still good.
The dealer "updated" me back to 13.19, all ok. I upgraded again to 13.38 ... all is good with the back up camera.

It might be related to the update, but not in my Jeep.

Re: Backup camera video

Here's my "me too" post. A few of the members on the forum urged me to upgrade, glad I did. Having only owned the Jeep for about a month, I was hating the uConnect system and thought it was absolute garbage. Menus took forever to switch, as well as a lot of other annoyances. Upgrading did away with a lot of those.

But I could have sworn that the backup video wasn't jerky before. Glad to see, once again, it's not just me.

Re: Backup camera video

For what it's worth, installed 13.48.3 this morning and quick tests reveal this backup camera glitch to be gone, or greatly minimized. Not sure if the new update fixed it or just the act of reinstalling the software.

Either way, I'm grateful!

I'd agree it has to be the sensing system along with some other factor helping--not just the update itself on an otherwise working system.

The 13.38 update seems to leave the camera on just a bit longer when switching to forward.

Maybe its not related to the update - or - maybe its a series of things - with dependencies... May also be hardware failure. My backup cam has clearly gotten worse - I now have distortion - which I didn't prior - prior it was just jerky after a second - then clear - then jerky. Now - when its jerky - it distorts the image significantly. This was clearly after upgrade to

Re: Backup camera video

Mine is doing it as well. A White dot has appeared in the screen when backing up.

Re: Backup camera video

Same here too. Backup video gets very jittery when actually reversing. Was fine before I did the 13.48 update. Gotta love that "backup camera enhancements" is on the update notes. That's some enhancement there, Jeep

Well, they DID give you something you didn't have before, right? Remember, to enhance is to increase AND/OR improve something. They increased the jitter. Enhanced

Re: Backup camera video

Mine was fine, until I installed 13.48.3. Now I too have the "jerky camera". Hopefully, it will be corrected in the next firmware release.

Re: Backup camera video

I did the 13.48.3 update over a week ago, and my back-up camera has been, and is working fine. I don't know if the problem is just a coincidence, or is related to the update, but the update hasn't affected the performance of my camera at all, making me believe something else is at play here.
