Reversing/ Parking camera
 
Hey guys,

What is the image quality of the picture like on your reversing camera??

Mine is pretty low grade and unfocussed, the lens is clean but it is just a murky picture and i was wondering if this was common.

Thanks in advance

Mine is about 4-5 years old with all time ACC power (meaning that the camera is on when the key is [ON]).

Did you use the stock wiring for your reverse cam? What's the model of your Panasonic? Very nice!

Naw, the HU is a Pioneer. Not a Panasonic.

It's all custom. I did my own wiring.

In the lift gate, through the ceiling, down the a-pillar, under the dash.

It don't have it wired to come on when shifted into reverse although I can just by splicing into the white/green lamp wire but I just tap the screen for the camera when I need it.

....or when I want to spy on other WK drivers who seem to be mostly old women. Lol.

mine is wired up the hatch, down the pillar, under the carpet and into the headunit. with a lockpick on a factory nav the camera comes on automatically in reverse or with a button push while in drive. it is very simple to install.

the stock camera is awful quality. I'd upgrade the stock camera if there were a direct replacement option.

Are you asking about the OEM camera?

If so, yes, the picture is pretty bad - always seems blurry.
