I picked up my FFH four days ago and am absolutely loving it so far. I've experienced a few issues that I'm not sure are problems, quirks, or just my own personal idiosyncrasies. One of these issues involves the back up camera. I've utilized reverse a grand total of 7 times so far and the back up camera lens has been dirty on four of those occasions. Dirty enough that anything in the view as completely blurred out and warranted me getting out simply to clean it off.
My question; Is this normal?
This is my first car with a back up camera of any type although I've been a passenger in plenty of other vehicles equipped with back up cameras. I've never noticed any other back up camera being dirty... certainly not dirty enough to render it useless. Now admittedly it's been a misty, rainy, sleety, melty few days. The entire car has gotten quite dirty in the 300 miles I've put on it so far. So again... is this normal behavior? Should I expect to clean the back up camera often?
Thanks for any input!
