Recommended Posts

My 2016 WT had better rear camera clarity then my 2017 SLE.... Still works, just looks like your'e looking through water.

My 2014 Sierra Camera sucked, the 2016 Sierra it was great, The new 2018 Silverado it's blurry again :(

 

Is this just a quality control issue with the Camera's?

I didn't realize how bad mine was until I test drove a 19, the clarity made mine look like a POS. I will say that the one on my 18 is better than the one in my old 15, so for me at least, they're getting progressively better.

We are talking about the back up camera, correct?  I didn't thing GM offered a rear view camera until these 2019's came out. 

 

The back up camera on our Suburban is ok, but really sucks at night.

I could read a newspaper headline with my 2014 1500 Sierra camera (im exagerrating but it was very clear).  Just bought a new '18 2500 6.0 SLT and the rear view camera stinks!   Value engineering strikes again.....

Anyone figure this out yet? I just bought a 2017 suburban premier thinking it was top notch, but the camera was garbage. My 2019 Ram looks 100x better.

I've had the same camera experience as others.  Had a 2014 1500  with a great camera.  I drove a 2019 old style 1500 for 2 weeks that had a great camera.  Bought my  2015 3500 and the camera was terrible.  So I took a gamble and bought GM# 84079952.  This is the replacement for a 2019 HD with 8' box and with out remote tailgate.  The picture is fantastic.  Only trouble was I had to swap the old connector (6 pin) onto the new camera (8 pin).  The extra 2 pins are for the power locking tailgate.
