I have specified the reversing camera on my order and wondered if any of you guys had a picture of how it looks ?

The car we tried on the test drive didn't have one, but I was still quiet impressed with the sensor system on the infotainment system.

What I was wondering, is does the camera replace the sensor display, or does it superimpose the two together or maybe does it just split the screen and use half for each ?

Anyone know ?

Thanks

Yes seems that way, hopefully you'll see the sensor screen when in forward gear and actual view in reverse
We'll find out eventually when they decide to supply our cars !

You get a split screen view, camera takes full screen with the sensor view being overlayed in the left portion. You can minimize the sensor view to get full screen camera only by pressing the on-screen minimize arrow. This is all while reverse is engaged. In forward gear you just get a sensor view. I'll attach some photos later.

Thanks Mackemsteve, exactly what I was after..

As I said above, the video links posted didn't seem to show good use of both the sensors and camera by presenting the information together.

The pictures that you posted show that VW have made a nice job of implementing the two together.

Great, thanks very much.

I like the way it pops out of the badge "" so it says clean

Absolutely. Every car I've had prior to this I had to clean the lens every couple days during shitty weather. This approach is way better.

Mack, when in reverse do you get the beeping sound of the sensors or is it just the display.
On the 2019 Tiguan model they have removed the sound. I always found they went off pretty late compared to my old nissan qq.

You still get beeps from the sensors if you get close to stuff, even in reverse.

Cheers for that.
The only thing I found with my Tig was they didn't start to off untill you were very Close compared to my old Nissan QQ which gave you plenty of time to start to respond.
I was going to take it back to see if they needed to be recalibrated but had to reject it before I got the chance

I wouldn't call it "very close", quite a sensible distance IMO. I find it most useful because I sometimes concentrate so much on the rear camera that I forget where the front is going and the beeps remind me if I'm swinging too near a wall or car!

I called my local specialist in radio fitting and other top quality stuff, to find out what he would charge for adding an aftermarket reversing camera to my car. Like the ones that fit in the number plate light. He did not advise doing that as most of the ones he has come across seem only to last a short while. He went on to say that, the camera he would fit would be incorporated in the boot handle like the VW one and would give moving guidelines to follow but it costs about the same as going to Lookers and having the VW one fitted, £460, OUCH!

My Tig wasn't going off untill around 4 feet and was just the final constant burst not the gradual audio even with the camera (which I have always been used to) for a car of that size I found a bit late where as my old QQ was much further away. It was also a wider pattern.
We used to laugh on the way on the school run.
We had to stop at a roundabout but you had to stay quite close to the curb which had bushes set in around 6 feet and the front sensors would go off and would talk to the bushes as we used to say.
It never once did it on the Tiguan.
I also had the around view camera which while I found it great for not curbing the wheels, I could have done without it and saved the cash.

One last question..

Been reading that the reversing camera comes in two versions, Low and High..

Apparently the 'Low' has the green lines but they don't move with the steering, and with the 'High' the lines move to indicate direction of travel.

Maybe I have completely misunderstood this, or maybe this is just for retrofitted kit, but I am not sure.

Anyone confirm what the factory fit camera in the T-Roc does ?

No idea about the "two versions" or how you get one or the other. The one fitted as standard on my Design doesn't have lines that move as you steer (not on the camera), the lines that move are part of the sensor system. To be 100% honest, I had no idea if mine had lines that move or not, I had to go outside and check. That's how little importance it was to me. The camera & sensors are good enough that I've never even noticed the lines don't move.
