The manual isn't very helpful. I assume the green rectangle is the approximate footprint
of the car.

Hi Gummibear, I have a silver Tempest
You are right actually.... with no street lights its terrible. But in the recent snowy spell, the snow covered roads reflected the light about and it was usable at night. And yes - i can judge to the inch directly behind me, but cant understand what i am looking at at the sides cos of the distortion. The issue i have with the distortion is that as you reverse up to something...... the distortion makes it speed up as you close in.... its caught me out a couple of times where i have suddenly been closer to something than i realised.Dave R said:I don't have any problem with the camera though mine is the first type, we have a bit more light at night than you do Tempest I think,we have street lights ! I have got used to wiping the lens when I go behind the car now as a habit to make sure that its clean. I would like to see the new type with the lines though I have got used to mine now and I can park up to 1" from the car behind with now problems and I now where the side finishes even though it is a fisheye type as Tempest says.
