I understand. On the last trip, cruising down the highway, I apply the brake , the camera would switch to backup mode, with sound and the range markers. Tapped the brake pedal and it went off.. On the next stop had DW to check the brake lights making sure that the backup lights were not coming on. Thought the backup lights may be sending the camera into backup mode. All lights were operating properly.
If I knew what placed the camera in backup mode. Backup lights, reverse switch, something else? Now, I am treating it as a fluke and will keep an eye on it.
