Has anyone solved the problem of obscured vision when there is rain on the rear view camera?
I see that very same picture every time it rains. Fun car but far from perfect.
I tried RainX and got beading and serious distortion. Not a solution.
Duct tape a hair dryer on the back of the car?
I've not driven a car where this doesn't happen.
You should see what happens when you drive through very sticky falling snow...
It's not just a Tesla issue. I've had the problem on every car I have owned - Lexus, Toyota, BMW & Acura.
This has been discussed on TMC literally for years. It is a real issue. Tesla needs to solve it. Seems to me a tiny stream of compressed air on the camera lens, activated whenever the windshield wipers are active, would be a possible solution.
That'd be so cool. They already have the air compressor for SAS.
It's not rocket science. This video is 3 years old. I think all VW's have this now.
That's pretty useless. Cool, but useless. It only protects the camera when it's not in use. I keep the camera on at all times while driving - it's basically my rear view mirror since the view out the back is so small with the real rear view mirror and a 7 seater.
I applied Aquapel and it seems to be working so far.
I used RainX and got a couple of beads on the lens rather than a smear and it REALLY messed up the view. I wonder if there might be an easy way to direct some airflow across the lens to blow off beaded water.
