backup camera

  1. Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    Is there any way to access the backup cam besides through the infotainment display? I'd like to have the option to view it without going in reverse, or in some way access it from a raspberry pi so that I can treat it as a dashcam for the back.

    Took my 2014 Volt in for hail damage repair and I get it back and my backup camera isn't working. The hubby said the camera seems to be "loose" in the back. Where does the wiring for the backup camera run from front to back? Clearly it is unplugged somewhere but I don't know where to look...

    I'm thinking about installing a camera from a 2014 chevy camaro. The connectors look the same and the camera looks to be close in size/shape. Has anyone tried something like this...

    I recently purchased a license plate style backup camera. I've run a hidden RCA cable all the way from the camera to the front console, through the inside of the radio console, and up into the mini-glove box that is in the center of the dash through the hidden hole under its pad, that line works...

    Hello, Volt Forum members ! Has anyone seen a Volt on a dealer lot that only has the Safety 1 package, instead of Safety 1 and Safety 2 ? I figure I can keep myself in my own lane, and cars ahead of me are the first thing I look for. Safety 2 seems like it's adding complexity and cost for...

    More and more frequently now I am finding that the image from the backup camera on my 2013 Volt is upside down. It may self correct the next time or two, but the issue keeps reoccurring. Has anyone had this issue and can offer a solution? Taking it to the dealer when it may not display that...
  8. Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Since I got my 2013 Volt in January I've read many posts here about the backup camera. Many lamented the inability to get a decent picture even after GM replaced their camera. My complaint was the camera was dim in daylight and completely worthless at night, capturing only a tiny trapezoid cast...

    Hello All, Ive been scrubbing throigh the awesome link given in another thread http://www.autocats.ws/manual/chevrolet/ But to be honest its a large amount of data to sift through so I was wondering if anyone has added an aftermarket backup camera. I havent purchased one yet but I'm looking at...

    Our 2013 Volt did not come equipped with a camera or backup sensors. We would like to install retrofit units. Has anyone done this? Can we use the existing screen or must we add a second video screen? Do we run the risk of messing up the various fault detection sensors? Ideas anyone?

    So I noticed that my backup camera has a very dark image when the rear bumper is facing the sun. I did some tests and I can see that because the bumper below the license plate is in view of the camera it can reflect bright light into the camera and cause the camera to stop down to a very dark...

    What do you all think of the image quality of the backup camera? I want to know if maybe I have a defective unit. The color of the image is almost so washed out that it appears black and white. Additionally, the image is always very dark making it somewhat hard to see. I'm coming from an 08...
