WK2 Backup Camera Question

My 2014 JGC Limited is on order. I can hardly wait.

Is the backup camera able to see the hitch to assist in backing for tow hookup or, is it physically adjustable to be able to see the hitch?

Re: WK2 Backup Camera Question

Congrats on the coming new rig!

I placed a small step ladder up against bumper and hitch receiver. A picture is worth a thousand words....

Non-adjustable but not needed.

Re: WK2 Backup Camera Question

It's awesome, reverse right up and under the trailer and get it right every time with no guessing; and those with QL, can even engage the ball without getting out of the car.
Even the non genuine ones that are getting fitted to the Laredos in Aus help massively.

Re: WK2 Backup Camera Question

I can say without a doubt, the backup camera looks directly down on my hitch ball and 95% of the time, I'm able to back it under my trailer hitch "first time" and just crank it down. "Best thing since sliced bread" for this kind of thing!

Re: WK2 Backup Camera Question

I wish there was a wiper or something for the lens of the cameras. Gets dirty fast. Not to mention, fogs up with a quickness.
