#1 of 7 Rear Camera Issues
Dec 17, 2007 (4:23 pm)
A few days ago my rear camera appears to be dirtied from the slop on the roads here in New England. I tried inserting a wet paper towel in the opening where the camera is but it is still very smudged.
Is there supposed to be a protective lens over the hole for the camera or is that normal? If so, that is a poor design and I would like to know how to clean the camera.

Just answered my own question by checking the 08 CX-7 manual (07 manual doesn't have it)....the camera is mounted down by the license plate, not up top which is the washer fluid dispenser...camera is easily cleaned...give me the dummy award....

Pet Peeve with the camera; why does it only work while on reverse? I understand that you want to see what's behind you while backing up, but having the camera just for reverse is kind of a waste (one only drives in reverse probably less than 5% of the time and for very short periods, right?). It'd be great to have a button on the dashboard (what's one more button?) so one could flip into camera mode while driving (forward), just to see how close someone is tailgating you, or at a red light if someone is getting too close, or if you go over a bump or pothole. Just my personal opinion.

The backup camera in our 2010 CX-7 intermittently fails to turn on. Anybody else having this problem?

I am having the same problem with my 2010 CX-7. Have you found a solution for this problem yet?
