The lines do curve on mine, could it be that we have different cameras fitted, or is it just part of the 360 camera?
So do mine, your thoughts were mine also

My guess is that the retro fit camera does not interface with the steering input and just gives a basic rear picture. Without the guide lines moving in tune with the steering it loses 90% of its usefullness.

I wanted an FR and wife wanted a rear view camera when we ordered in January and it wasnt available on the spec.

Paid £350 for a retrofit camera at the dealer before collection in April. It works as the original but doesn't have any lines at all, it just shows a live image of what's behind you.

She is happy though which is all that matters :)

Could be the 360 camera CheeseR, I don't have that.
Or it could be that the after market offering from SEAT wasn't quite as good as the original in the MY18 spec. As I say I do know they has numerous failures when they tried retrofitting them to MY19 cars that unexpectedly arrived without the camera.
In fairness to SEAT UK after a considerable delay they did their best to resolve the issue at a cost of £500-£1000 per car. Sadly, what I've ended up with falls somewhat short of what I've used in other vehicles. Whilst I can indeed see out the back and the red distance lines are useful, the parallel parking lines are no help whatsoever and I find I still use the mirrors more when reversing.

Hi,

Just had a call from Seat customer services - they confirmed it should have been fitted and are looking into getting it retro-fitted, will confirm next week.

Cheers,

Andy.
