Gosh. What a pathetic argumant.

So many people holding themselves high on pedestals. Get over it!

Re: The Back UP Camera feature is set up WRONG from the factory

Did I misunderstand all the posts that point out the function the OP describes isn't actually the way the system works?

Didn't I see a video that shows the backup camera coming on IMMEDIATELY when the vehicle was put in reverse, even when the warning message was displayed?

?????????????????????????????????????????

Re: The Back UP Camera feature is set up WRONG from the factory

This is fantastic reading, keep it coming.

To put things in perspective, remember that those of us with WJ's consider ourselves lucky to have heat. Getting live streaming of what we're about to hit is a luxury far beyond comprehension. We have to use these steps:

3. Pivot in your seat, using the leverage referenced in Step 2, to the 5 o'clock position, your neck should be able to make it to 6 o'clock.
4. Use your eyes and look for obstacles out the rear glass.
5. Slowly take your foot off the brake allowing the vehicle to backup.
6. Congrats, you just backed up in reverse like millions of people have been doing for over 100 years!!!!!

I think your 100% wrong, Many years ago I talked to a guy who used to drive a truck for a living, he said learn to use and rely on your mirrors while backing up, not turning around.
Well the technology has changed and I rely on my backup camera when I back up and I don't give a sh-it what legal issues chrysler is trying to protect.
When I go to back up and can't see anything in my backup screen it is not as safe as if I had an image of what is behind me. And I did not spend 43 grand for a safe driving lecture. I plan on going to the dealer and see if my vehicle can be fixed, that simple. By the way have fun twiddling your thumbs waiting for the rear view screen to make it's appearence.

Take your GC in for service. Everyone else has their camera come on within 1 sec. Maybe yours is broken!

Yes. I made sure to put in in reverse back to park and back to reverse several times to demonstrate that the message screen disappears within a split second of when the vehicle is put into reverse.

But... he might have a problem. I only posted my results. I'd like to see him take a short vid so we can actually see the problem.

Post a video of this please. (c'mon man, it's not that difficult) Just use your cell phone. You can even send me the video, I'll upload it for you if you want so we can document the issue.
