I think I'll have a crack at activating the gridlines first myself. It's just splicing a wire from what I understand.
I feel nausea whenever I think about taking my car to a Jeep dealer.

The aftermarket camera has a loop wire that can be cut to enable to grid lines. It is located about 1 metre from the camera (located in the tailgate cable). The Jeep one is communicating with the steering position sensor so needs to be enabled via software.

Hopefully the Jeep Australia funds will be directed back to the customers rather than the CEO:

Re: Rear safety camera

Printed that
Hopefully i'll get one of those in the mail.

Sweet, and great timing too, letter was released on the same day i wrote a quite descriptive email with pictures and everything to my local dealer service manager.

Bet they wouldn't have parts in for my service next week though.

Me neither but! If they can replace the crappy ones with guidelines, then they can damm well replace the "newer" ones with guidelines too.

I'll be onto this on Tuesday.



Thanks for Providing the letter.

Yes!

I had the dealer fitted crapcam replaced with the new one some time ago (well before this FCA letter came out, and FWIW, I've not received a letter - yet!) The replacement didn't have any guidelines by default, so I enabled dynamic ones. The upgrade was quite simple (after I'd worked out what to do).

My gridlines are dynamic and are superimposed on the newcam video feed by the UConnect which uses the steering wheel angle position to determine how much the lines curve.

I haven't had time to write up the process and post here. Is anyone (e.g. Aussie Laredo owners) interested in me doing that?

So the question I have is:

If you've had the newcam fitted (recently) under this "generous", and overdue, offer from FCA, did you get dynamic gridlines or not?

If your lines are dynamic, this means that FCA must have authorised a wiring loom change as well as fitting the new camera, since the only way that the UConnect knows to superimpose the dynamic lines lines is to get a message from the camera to say that the cam is on. (Putting the video signal onto the UConnect screen is a different 'instruction' that the UConnect receives). The moving line signal/instruction has to be provided by an extra wire between camera connector Pin 4 and the InlineBody/IP 2 Connector Pin 27...

There you go - I did my write up!

Note that the dynamic lines are "quite chunky" so they obscure some of the image - which is a PITA when I'm lining the tow-ball up with my caravan: I can't see the caravan hitch and tow-ball at the critical point where they're just about to touch! So, my next step is to install an on/off switch in the wire so I can fool the UConnect into thinking that there's no moving line signal and the lines disappear!

Careful what you wish for, it may come true...

MMM

Where are these located? Be brief, tailgate / passenger side of head unit?

I've got some install instructions, but it's for USA models and they quote different pin numbers.

Cam Pin 4 is in the tailgate.

IP 2 Connector Pin 27 is by the passenger (LHS) door hinge.

Neither connections require pulling the head unit out.

Brief enough?
