Rearview camera image upside down!!

My 2014 x3 35i Msport is just two weeks old and today the rearview camera image turned upside down. I know this sounds a little weird. No service has been done and no impact to the tail gate.
I did do a little research and found similar issues on f10 5 series. The probable cause was a software glitch that required the COM box to be re-initialized.
Anyone else out there had this happen?

Good one! I haven't heard of that happening to an F25 before.

You now get to meet the Service side of the house. Consider asking them if you can reserve a BMW loaner while your X3 is in for service. (For example,my local dealer has a good number of BMW loaners, but later service arrivals get a no-cost non-BMW rental from Enterprise. Everyone gets a rental or a loaner, but not everyone gets a BMW loaner.)

I have never had a problem getting a loaner if I schedule a little in advance. Never have gotten anything worse than a stripped down 328i.
Have had really good service when I had my 335d. Hope things go as well with the x3.

Talked to my Service Adviser yesterday and he indicated this is a rare but not unknown issue usually involving re-coding the vehicle. It is possible that the camera itself is defective and would need to be replaced.
He thought it would take about four hours to re-code the com box. If the camera is bad, they have it in stock and will replace it the same day. Will keep you posted after my appointment on Thursday.

Sorry for deviating from the subject but how do you like your X3 3.5i? I'm considering getting one and wanted to know how you like the ride, performance and what your real world consumption numbers are like? Thanks

Update on my upside down back up camera image...

Brought it in for service at 8:30, got a loaner, went to the golf course for an 9:30 tee time.
Finished the round at 1:30 and the x3 was fixed and ready to pickup!!
The SA said they checked for a defective camera. It was functioning properly, so the next fix was to reprogram the COM box which worked.

Hopefully this is the last of this I will have to deal with. Have 900 miles on the vehicle now and absolutely love it...especially in Sport Mode with DHP.

Hi. My 528i (2011) just started doing this and the dealer is telling me it is a "complicated" fix that will cost me $130. Sounds like a lot for a software glitch.

Any follow-up to your issue?

Yeah - they just reset the software and it worked...didn't undo any of my coding either. NO COST

Have not had any recurring issues. It might be complicated to figure out if it is a defective camera or software. In my case, once the cause was determined, it did not take much time to have it fixed.
