Rear view camera shows left side of the car to the right and right side to the left on my iPhone 7+

This seems to be dangerous as I want to use the camera for identifying vehicles coming up from behind. The rear mirror and my backingcamera is the showing it correct of course.

But I want to use the 750 as it presents a much wider image

 

Best regards

Dag

    Hello Dag

     The rear camera records as the front camera therefore the image is rotated. The reason is that dash cameras are designed for security purposes in case of accidents and not as reverse cameras however we will consider your suggestion to add this functionality in upcoming firmwares.

     

    Thank you

    May be not to be used as reverse camera, but live view both front and back as per your user manual and should therefore be expected already as a functionality in the firmware.

    Hello Dag

    Yes you can live view the camera directly by connecting it to your phone through direct wifi or cloud. Please refer to the articles below for further details.

    Hello Dag

     The rear camera records as a front unit and since its mounted backward the picture is supposed to be rotated. The camera doesn't invert the image as you can see in the rear view mirror of your car therefore it cannot be used as reverse camera. In the manual it's not written anywhere that  live view from the camera can be seen as a rear mirror view.

    Thank you for your understanding

    NO it says that via WiFi you can see both cameras live. For me that means that you can see a correct picture of what i going on both in front and back of the car.

    There is so may problems with your cameras that you should really do something quick about it.

    Noman, you are repeating yourself. Perhaps you should spend some time to try and understand what the person is asking, and then offering to fix it. Contact the software developers, have them make the fixes needed. It's easy.

    Makeme1witheverything   I agree with you. Why not fix the problem (the customer see it as a problem, even if the manufacturer does not) It is also recommended as a camera for watching inside the car and therefore your customers wants it to show the correct picture. Seems to be many problems with this camera now so Black View needs to treat there buyers with respect.
