Hi all,

Just took delivery of my ID3 Pro Performance Family edition. Very happy with it although the We.Connect app is a hot mess. I have a query about the reversing camera (or lack thereof). I was under the impression that the vehicle should have a reversing camera as well as auto-folding mirrors. Neither function seems to be present although the menu gives the option of auto-folding. The car was ordered in May 2021 - was the Family a different spec when I ordered it?

Someone will likely share an earlier brochure but here's July which specifies rear view camera on all models except for Life. You would think if you have just received the car the car would be built to at least the July spec. Worth flagging up with the dealer

Thanks for the reply. I've managed to get into the My Equipment section and it looks like a reversing camera is not part of the spec - I wonder if I have just managed to get the end of the previous builds.

Seems pretty conclusive that you should legitimately have expected a rear view camera to be fitted, unless you were allocated a Family that had been built prior, somehow.

Could this be a case of vehicles accidently leaving the factory incomplete (due to component shortage) and slipped through the net

Yep you’ve been missold, dealer should sort it. You bought a car that was advertised with a feature it doesn’t have.

What do you see on the infotainment screen when you go into reverse?

I get a schematic of the car with the front and rear parking sensor zones. I have tried swiping and tapping to no avail
