Rear view camera poor quality

Is it just me or does the rear view camera have terrible picture quality. I haven't had time to check other jeeps at the dealer to compare. The camera in my Lexus is 10x better. I guess I was hoping for more with a higher priced purchase.

I actually thought the dealer may have left some plastic over the lens or something but I checked and that's not the case

Re: Rear view camera poor quality

While on the topic of rear view cameras, I have a question. Does the Jeep camera have multiple views?

My current vehicle has standard, wide angle, and straight down. The last being very helpful when hooking up a trailer.

Let me know if you find out anything. I would love to get this corrected. Ours looks very blurry, best description would be that it appears to be out of focus or has a plastic cover over it.

Mine's clear. Try cleaning the lens.
