    I recently had the drop down reversing screen removed as it had broken and replaced it with a dash mounted 7 inch CD/DVD/Camera screen machine.

    Yesterday by MH was driven by a mechanic at the garage, when I collected it he asked why my reversing screen picture was the `wrong way round`. To be honest, not having used it much since it was fitted I hadn`t noticed, and can`t remember which way round it was on the drop down screen.

    Basically now, if reversing and there is a wall on the drivers side you are watching in your drivers door mirror, when you look at the screen the wall is on the left hand side of the screen, if that makes sense.

    Anyone know whether IF it used to be the other way round on the drop down screen it is simply a wiring mix-up, or is that how they always work?

    Thanks

    I suffer this as well

    I have suffered this as well.. mine is a pioneer system and it was made like that.. I gather there are some newer one's on the market that have it reversed so it is the right way round.

    But I have got used to it... I can have my camera set to be on all the time so it acts as a rear view mirror and I do that to see that the trailer is all OK..

    I also got an extra discount from Safeguard for having a back up camera

    Either the camera is built as a mirror view camera (sounds like yours is not)
    Or the screen should have in it's settings menu a mirror view setting,:thumb:

    We had one on our last van, then after 2 years it reversed image and no way of putting it right. :Doh:

    Tried using as a mirror, when towing the car, but it put me off a bit because when someone came up behind me, it looked like they was over taking on the inside. :Eek!::Rofl1: Bob.
