    Default Backup Camera question

    Members don't see this ad
    Every car I've driven with a back up camera adjusts the proximity lines on the camera when you turn the wheel. Mine does not move. Is this normal?

    Yes, it's your new normal. No big deal, really. To be honest, I'd prefer a backup beeper-sensor like I have on my Taurus to the camera on my Genesis.

    Yeah... parking assist is great - combined with the rear camera, it is perfect for backing my car into a small garage every day! And it already saved me from a high curb too!

    I noticed you have a Premium package - parking assist comes with the Tech package. Useful little tool!

    Thanks for the replies.

    I know about the parking assist and, to be perfectly honest, I haven't parallel parked yet - not a big deal but I am a tad nervous about it. I know that I would be evaluating the tech and to an onlooker look like a dimwit trying to park. I need to find an out of the way place to do it a few times.

    I was mostly worried that I might have had an issue with some sensor as I tried to see the headlamps move and never saw that either.

    The parking sensors are nice and saved me from a high curb as well but they are pretty stinking sensitive which I prefer over the opposite. I never noticed how low the bumper is on the front ... seems pretty low to me.

    You're aware of the side mirror tilt down feature as well, right?

    Yes, and side mirrors pointing straight down into the ground are of little use to me for normal backing up scenarios. Perhaps I will find the utility in them when I practice parallel parking.

    Ah . . A trip down the memory lane of first-time parallel parking: 58' VW, 4 spd, quirky cluster of three pedals on the floor, San Francisco hill, backing uphill. OUCH!

    How different things are now!

    Not the base, or Premium 3.8. I have just the camera.
