Ram 1500/2500/3500: ParkView Rear Back Up Camera - If Equipped

Your vehicle may be equipped with the ParkView Rear Back Up Camera that allows you to see a image of the rear surroundings of your vehicle whenever the shift lever is put into REVERSE. The image will be displayed in the rearview mirror display (if equipped) or Uconnect screen (if equipped) along with a caution note to "check entire surroundings" across the top of the screen. After five seconds this note will disappear.

The ParkView camera is located to the left of the tailgate handle.

When the vehicle is shifted out of REVERSE (with camera delay turned OFF), the rear camera mode is exited and the navigation or audio screen appears again.

When the vehicle is shifted out of REVERSE (with camera delay turned ON), The rear camera image will be displayed for up to 10 seconds after shifting out of REVERSE unless the forward vehicle speed exceeds 8 mph (13 km/h), the transmission is shifted into PARK or the ignition is switched to the OFF position.

When enabled, active guide lines are overlaid on the image to illustrate the width of the vehicle and its projected backup path based on the steering wheel position. The active guide lines will show separate zones that will help indicate the distance to the rear of the vehicle.

For further information about how to access and change the programmable features of the Parkview Rear Backup Camera, refer to "Uconnect Settings" in "Understanding Your Instrument Panel" for further information.

The following table shows the approximate distances for each zone:
