Re: Rear safety camera

Had mine done with the genuine camera installed yesterday with 20k service
Supposedly its an all day job but even with the pre-Christmas workload they had it finished by 5pm.
Picked the car up this morning, looks good, clear in the daytime, active gridlines function.

have to edit my sig.

Re: Rear safety camera

Just took delivery of a 2016 Cherokee Limited and the backup camera quality is poor compared to the 2013 Grand Cherokee Overland that we had previous. Could I have got a bad camera?

Re: Rear safety camera

Had my camera etc upgraded today.
As you can see the original had pretty good video.

It was completed in about 3 hrs as well as a reflash for a recall on Rapid Response Transmittal.
New pics after camera install

Re: Rear safety camera

Yes - it looks very "fish eyed". Not as good as it should be, but better than you had I guess...

Re: Rear safety camera

I think any 170 degree camera will look a little fish eyed when the object behind is very close 😊
It's all good as far as I am concerned.

Re: Rear safety camera

I've had the new camera a week now.

The difference between the proper camera and the old crap one at night is well..... like night and day.

Even with only light from the reverse lights the image is reasonably clear and with fairly accurate colour. The old crap cam in poor light could only give light and dark only with no rendition of colour.

I think the view is slightly narrower angle than the one that I had before and the camera is mounted with the lens slightly further outwards so it is less affected by stray light from the tail lights.
t might be a little more exposed to getting rain on the lens but not a problem.

The best part is that this will end the misery of having to extract the camera from the tailgate when someone mistook it for the release button.

The view is noticeably better in the daytime too except of course when parking in front of a Nissan Micra, but only reversing up onto the bonnet and over it would improve the view in that instance.
