I know the Yanks have.
You mean the ones that have fitted the kit? p/n: 82213884AB
There's someone who did 3 x 15min youtube videos on fitting this kit. Refernced on a USA thread in here somewhere.
The Dynamic Gridlines are on that kit by default, and i guess it's hooked up to t he BUS system as it has a harness not just camera and RCA leads.
In the EVIC on one of the 4wd "displays" the little animated wheel thingys show the front wheel steer angles so I guess steering angle sensor are already there and the same signal is used to move the gridlines on the Parkview.
If JA are actually fitting the real Parkview camera to the BUS using the full proper harness then, yes.
Hymer (Rob) doesn't seem to have the gridlines on his replacement so I assume it was disabled or not fully connected in the BUS system.
How are "people" getting a replacement? ( short of going down the pioneering route like Hymer with a change.org petition going). That even made a auto news website.
Write to the dealer with "concerns" and copy to JA customer service? or higher up the food chain.
New "Parkview" cameras are coming from JA and not sourced by the dealers/ service centres right?

Any more news on this?
