Rear Camera view

Post by dc44back » Fri Jan 11, 2019 7:23 am

I might be going mad but I thought the rear view camera used to display in the same manner as the forward camera, ie without any distortion from the boot surrounding the screen.

Now it displays like a peephole in your front door which is not so easy to use.

How do others rear cameras display?

Same or different?

May be best to post a pic of what you got for others to compare.

I believe if you tap the image it will change, could be wrong but I’ve definitely done something by accident where it changed the view like you describe. Might have been the camera icon too.

I can see a bit of the boot and the camera washer.

When I had my Velar new I could only see the bottom of the boot. A few weeks ago I can now also see a bit of number plate. Wonder if the camera has move in its housing or touched the screen which has altered the picture?

You are not going mad.

I have seen the same thing, when stationary and out of gear I can turn on camera and get a “wide angle” view behind car. When in reverse it is just normal view.

I don’t know why this is and don’t know if you can choose what view to use when reversing.

It is confusing?

You can change the view. There’s a fish eye type view and standard. I’m not sure how to change it though, as like others I did it by accident !

To change between both views you just have to press the camera icon on the menu panel and it will switch to another view
