Back up camera, field of view adjustment?

Hi folks,
Is there any way to adjust the bu camera's field of view? The view is pretty straight down. I'd like to see farther bavk, if possible.
I can adjust the markers, but not the camera angle

What you are talking about is the aiming of the camera, not changing it's field of view. Field of view would require a different lens to perhaps adjust from 140 to 170 width of field of view.

You'll have to investigate how the camera is mounted. Often the angle can be adjusted to raise it up or down. If it's incased in a box with a window, you might have to remove the box to achieve the adjustment.

On your model I believe the camera is mounted behind a clear window. You will need to remove the window to access the camera. You should be able to slightly raise the angle of the camera to look farther back. The trade off is that you will not longer to see close to the rear bumper or hitch.

I was able to adjust the angle by removing the cover.
Thanks!
