Re: Rear safety camera

Kizz, I think mrcazbir is a spam post. He posted the identical blurb on Whirlpool under the WK2 thread and it was deleted marked spam.

ETA: I've reported the post.

If it actually is a spam/scam it should be reported to ebay to have the item/user deleted

Re: Rear safety camera

Snuke was the first to pick it up (page 86). The original post is at the very bottom of page 85 (but hidden by the WP mods - User: mrcas). I can't be bothered to report it to eBay though. Maybe Snuke has . Caveat emptor and all that.

Re: Rear safety camera

I haven't reported it on eBay, I can't see a reason to. The account has positive feedback, although most of that is as a buyer rather than seller.

Re: Rear safety camera

Hi all
New here, picked up new Laredo Petrol 3 weeks ago and very happy with it.
FYI Dealer had already fitted the factory reverse camera with active gridlines enabled. Seems to work OK compared to previous vehicles cameras day/night etc. Prior to delivery I Did not know the gridlines would be enabled and thought they were just a gimmick but see now that they can be handy.
Previous vehicle had a good reverse camera but funny it was offset and at a slight angle to compensate. Made it tricky using it to reverse onto the trailer/towball. Happy the Jeep GC camera is in the centre.

Got the upgraded camera installed today. A huge difference than the previous one, also has the active gridlines and the option in UConnect to turn them off( had that option earlier but it didn't work). Waiting for more upgrades from FCA...

Re: Rear safety camera

Just had my 20k service and reported the "faulty" reversing camera. Showed the dealer the letter stating my new camera should have the guidelines. Outcome was they stated they had fitted the camera as supplied and couldn't do anything without "authorisation" from FCA. Told me to call the number on the letter.

Called today and explained to the customer service lady that I had the new camera fitted, have the guidelines option in my Uconnect but no guidelines appear. Explained the dealer won't do anything as they have done what they were required to do, that is fit the camera they were supplied with.

The lady generated an authorisation and the dealer rang me back to arrange a fix for the camera. Apparently the dealers are "unaware" that an additional wire must be fitted to enable the guidelines. So looks like I will be getting them.

Suggest if you get a letter, have the new camera and don't have the guidelines, ring the customer service number, state the dealer won't do anything more and get them to generate an authorisation for you.

Re: Rear safety camera

Got my new harness fitted to the already new camera, enabling the gridlines.
They were unable to get the option up in the UConnect to turn the gridlines off. They assured me they put in the XAC code in through DealerCONNECT. The mechanic was actually quite surprised it wasn't there and showed genuine concern (contrary to the usual 'who cares' attitude) he was going to chase Jeep AU about it.

I never had the box to turn the lines off like most have.

@MadMapMan I'd be half interested to see if yours comes up with the option to turn off. But at the end of the day I can't see any need to turn them off. I can still see the towbar for reversing.

Well I think that is it for me on this camera issue, after 18months of

I think the 8.4 radios in laredo are nav ready. Attached is a picture of the screen showing a map icon on the right on startup, it goes away after couple of minutes. Also under the system informaion there are two options ' Map Database' & 'Nav' or something similar, so i guess the hardware is the same as the 8.4N, its a matter to get an activation code to enable Navigation.
The US delearship are charging $595 for activating Nav. I checked with few dealers in Sydney and they said it cant be done ( as usual BS from them). There was a Tsb on how to activate Nav back in Nov 2013.

Sorry for the lack of comms over the last month - have been away/very busy.

Interesting to see that there are two groups of Laredo owners: All have RJ3 Uconnect units but some have the gridline option, others (including you and I) have not. FWIW, this is independent of firmware version, I've tried every version from 14.25.5 back to 13.43.7 - none have the option on my UConnect

I was (wrongly) convinced that ensuring that the XAC code was in DealerConnect and updating the BCM via the WiTech would get the UConnect to realise that the gridline on/off option should be there, but this is not the case. I got my dealer to update the BCM last Friday (from 68210534AC to 68236158AA - if you care!); the XAC code was definitely in D/C and I got no gridline option. Bugga!

Consequently, I'm now not sure whether I will get the loom updated or not. I have the newcam, I have dynamic gridlines (albeit that the camera is slightly offset, which cheeses me off), and from your experience (and several others - incl @mattw1992 & @Adriwood), getting the new loom doesn't activate the option...

My wish to have the on/off is driven by the "fatness" of the lines that obscures the trailer towball just at the point where I'm lining up the Jeep. That's the critical point where I want to know exactly where things are. I still have the option with my single-cable-hack to install a simple switch which will disconnect the signal circuit and turn the lines on/off. But that's not the solution that I (and you) should have - we should have it in software, on the screen, integrated...

...so this is now a (slightly pointless) challenge, albeit that people have climbed mountains for less :-)

Please let me know if your dealer does come up with a solution - and if possible, what the magic incantation is. You'll have no one keener than me waiting for the answer.
