When you have it in reverse and the camera is on, twist the middle control and it will dull or brighten. Mine was quite dark and a found this out by accident. Hope this helps.

Is it a 8G or 9G ? (Posted in 8G section)

I wasn't aware of a 8G having OEM reverse camera.

This time of year the rear lens may become dirty as it's right in the line of fire of the sprayed muck. A quick wipe with a finger usually fixes it.

I had 2 8G EX's and neither had a reversing camera option in the brochure from what I remember.

Anyone care to tell me I'm wrong.

It was fitted by me directly into the Sat nav display, and comes on when reverse is selected, I did it because the reversing buzzers stopped working. I know the brighness switch on the dash but it does not help much in the daylight but bright enough in the shade. I might try a different camera.Regards, cracking forum lads.
