Hi, probably a stupid question but how can I tell if my GLA has a reverse camera fitted?

I believed it had, and when I select reverse gear a small camera opens up on the tailgate, but no image ever appears on the screen. Is the lens fitted as standard but I need to have the actual camera or wiring fitted as an option?

It is a lease car so I am struggling to get the info through them, and dont want to go to my Merc dealer and say my reverse camera isnt working only for them to tell me I dont have one.

It is a 220 CDI AMG Line if it matters.

Thanks in advance

If you access the "System/Settings" menu on the i"Pad" display (what is it called?), there is an option for the Camera. It either says "engage with R" or "open cover".
I think all the GLA's are supposed to have a working Rear view camera.....

Hi, yes it gives me those options. If I select open cover it does that, but no image. I have toggled both settings on and off but still no image ever.

Guess that confirms my thoughts. Thanks guys. I will drop it in to the dealer to check out.

Thanks
