I wonder how hard it would be to switch out to the HD camera and if it’s even possible?

I was thinking the same thing. Just got a 2019 RST and didn't realize it wasn't the HD back up camera. Could it really be that hard to swap out the tailgate mechanism with camera? would love to here if someone has done this

FYI, taking my truck back to the dealer for camera issue glitching out still, brake life at 0% despite just being serviced, and check engine light on after engine/transmission began jerking at 60mph. Light went out but got the code ? Related to MAF sensor. The camera was looked at when I first got the truck, again when it was serviced about a month ago/7k miles but this time I said I'm not leaving with the truck until it's fixed. This is ridiculous and is a safety concern especially with 4 kids come on GM

It's not a safety concern, as the brake life reading zero is a computer error, not that the brake pads are actually worn out...unless you've driven it 50+ K miles...

The only "safety concern" would maybe be the backup camera not working...

I think an engine jerking at 60 mph can be a safety concern no matter what you think.

I have a 2019 GMC Sierra Denali with every option. My camera has cut out completely it reads service rear vision system. It isn't just the cheaper models. This is an 82000 dollar truck.

I have the same issue with my 2019 lt and the service guy told me it was normal for the trim i have, and the worst part is that  make you feel like you are making a big deal for a backup camera

I ignore the DIC readings for brake life,  got my own built-in brake life monitor called my eyeballs. Wide spokes in the alloys permit direct viewing of the edges of the pads for brake life without removing the wheels.

Might be more than just the camera, convenience II option pack comes with HD camera and HD touchscreen. Changes in the (Silverado) reverse lighting improved over the previous gen.....my '16 (white) lenses had reflectors only pointing rearward, new taillights in 19+ have lenses with reflectors pointing rearward and to the side of the vehicle for better wide angle lighting with stock bulbs.

Has anyone had a dealer fix their "blue screen of death" on the backup camera? Had my 2019 RST in a few weeks ago, and of course could not duplicate the issue. Since it wasn't malfunctioning there, they couldn't do anything.

 

It seems to not work on start up, regardless of temperature or waiting for the full infotainment boot up. If you drive for a little, and let the truck fully shut down, it seems to work.  Of course, that means when you drive to the dealer it them works when it starts back up. 

 

If it is a federal law that vehicles need backup cameras, how is GM getting away with this?

Take it back to the dealer for software update.

Thanks, I know that's what they said - the HD model is not having this issue it's just the "lower end" model screens!? The dealer said there is nothing they can do with it at this point though...any ideas for follow up action plan?

Mine said the same thing.  Daytime is okay and kicks out at times.  I also get the service rear camera notice and screen goes blank.  At night it gets real fuzzy with lines through it.  Took it to the dealer and they said they didn't find any issues and I even showed them the video.  They said there is nothing they can do.  Sad!

      I have the 2019 Sierra Denali which has the Rear Camera Mirror (RCM). My issue is that the camera used for this view is located above the window on the rear of the cab. The problem with this is that if my rear view is blocked by cargo in the rear it also blocks the view of the camera being used  making the view useless. In my case, a much better view would be achieved if the backup camera located on the tailgate could be used. Does anyone know of a way to accomplish this?

      Wondering if it is possible to add the front camera to my 2019 1500.  I have surround vision with the rear and side camera views, and the surround view less the front camera.  Can I simply buy and add this camera?
       
      All input is welcome.  Thanks!!

      Hello All!  I do apologize if this has already been tackled.   I did do a cursory search and could not find this in the HD forum at the very least. 

      We were able to finally able to pick up our 2020 GMC AT4 HD 3500 this past Saturday.  Everything with the back-up camera seemed normal the first few time we back-up up.   Then, I’m unsure if I did something messing with the setting or jostling thru the different camera views or what...but now the camera, when you go into reverse looks like this!   It is all skewed and stretched.  
       
      Has anyone seen this before1. Figured I would approach y’all before spending the time going back to the dealership!
       
      Any help with this would be greatly appreciated, Thank you!.

      I have a 2019 Silverado Custom. I bought it with 7 miles on it and noticed about a week after having it that the camera would glitch when backing up. So i took it in and they said they couldnt find it. I drove it for about 2 months without a fuss until another recall came out. I toom it in for the recalls and told them to check out the camera and the radio because sometimes if i got a phone call it would just continue to ring. It wouldnt let me pick up. Wouldnrt stop ringing, wouldnt do anything. Plus the camera was still glitching. So they had it for a week and said they replaced the camera and the radio. I go to get it and the service department guy get out and says he sees the glitch now. Mind you it happens everytime you hit the brakes when backing up. So they keep it for another few days and then they call and say they cant do anything. They said gm is working on a fix. I just paid 39k for a truck and it doesnt work right there is no way that they cant fix this. Ive read a bunch of forums here and other places and looks like this has been going on as far back as 2017. Some got fixed some didnt. So you cant tell me that you are working on a fix and it takes that long. I can have one of my computer savvy friends fix it in a week tops. So been thinking about filing a class action if more people are on board who are getting screwed around. What do you guys think?
