Activate guidelines on reverse camera

Post by Craigathorn » Sat Mar 02, 2019 7:09 pm

Hi all, first timer here! :D

I’ve just installed a reverse camera in my Ford Mondeo (fusion) which is “supposed” to be a replacement camera with guidelines, however the guidelines don’t seem to be appearing at all..

Is there some sort of setting I need to alter in forscan to turn these on? I’ve been told about the reverse camera calibration option but this doesn’t seem to be there and I’ve heard it’s been removed from the latest version of forscan?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

The guidelines do come from the camera itself. Most aftermarket cameras have a way to add or remove parking lines and also a way to reverse the image. The ones I install have a green and a white wire loop on the camera cable usually close to the camera. If the wires are connected simply cut the loop and tape them up. Sometimes they are already cut and you will just see 4 wires sticking out. Two white and two green. connect the like colored wires together to change the options. Green is usually for parking lines and the white is for normal/mirror image. There are some I've seen as well with only one of the options or none of them.
