    I’m not seeing other people complain about this. My IC shows cars and trucks accurately but they’re typically displayed as 5 feet farther back than they really are.
    This means that if a car to my left has its front bumper level with my rear bumper, my IC shows them as 5 feet behind me.
    Trying to figure out if this is normal or if something is misaligned

    Normal. I don’t think they have ever said that what they visually display is accurate from a measurement perspective.

    it’s not even accurate from a visual indicator.

    I assume some of that is time lag from processing the camera feeds and then creating the display. HW3 should help that problem.

    I’ve noticed the same. It is a bit disconcerting.
