I seems to be fine for what I wanted. Sure, I would like to have the around view setup and a larger screen but this is better than the nothing I had.planet4ever wrote:So ... how happy are you with the results? I just got an S with the charge package, and I am very disappointed in the backup camera. It is nowhere close to as good as what was in the 2011-2012 SL.
Bottom line: I loved the one in my 2011 SL, but I may never bother even trying to use the one in the 2013 S.
- Of course the screen size is much smaller, but I knew that ahead of time.
- The display is extremely dark. The only control I could find that might affect that was the radio display brightness and contrast. Turning those all the way up didn't seem to help.
- There are no predictive guide lines - the lines that curved left and right as you turned the steering wheel. This was the one huge feature that made me an enthusiast for the 2011-12 backup system.

The SL and SV have different harnesses leading up to the body to hatch harness so I don't think it would be plug and play like it is in the S (at least in the 2013 models). The '11 and '12 models may be different.BlackLeaf13 wrote:Or SV model.
