Backup camera upgrade

I love the Stelvio but the backup camera is pitifully inadequate. Does anyone know of any aftermarket upgrades?

I've heard a number of comments along these lines, but I don't have a problem with it. Previous car had it in the rear view mirror, so this is a vast improvement in terms of size.

Resolution is fine- and due to distance from the screen (unlike some other vehicles) it is great in my opinion. A matter of perspective. And frankly the complaint is naval fuzz in terms of overall drive tech and the things that matter.

It not as good as what I've seen in the Land Rover Discovery, but it's better than the one I've seen in the Audi A7. Screen is fine for my needs as I came from a 2008 Infiniti FX35(base camera not the first gen around view), which wasn't anything specially. What I think could see an improvement is the camera it self. Maybe a better sensor that also work a bit better at night too.

Everything about it sucks .... not worthy of a $50,000 car ..... people aren't complaining for no reason.

Agreed. Resolution is very poor and the screen size is a joke. Especially being that it's an SUV with limited rear visibility, it definitely needs to be better. I can't even count how many cheap rental cars I've been in that have better ones.

I'm not complaining, I seriously don't have a problem with it.

It's not the best, but with the parking sensors, if you back into anything it's on you.....D
