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
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.
