Mein Auto: 2012 328i Sport Sedan
Backup Camera... Defaults to surround view.

Wondering if anyone else is having this problem...

My backup camera (almost) always defaults to the Surround view. I have to deliberately push the idrive control to activate the Rear view.

Is this a bug that needs to be fixed at the dealership? or is this the standard default operation?

Will I require creative coding to "fix" this?

That is the standard behavior. Not sure if that can be changed by coding the car or not.

I haven't played with mine that much but seems to me that it comes up in the last mode it was in upon engaging reverse. Will have to experiment some more with it.

Isn't that why you get the full camera package? Seems to me like the logical default with that package.

Present - '06 E90 330i sport; Past - '04 E46 ZHP, '00 E46 328i
