    Is it just mine or is the back up camera a very low quality (resolution)? My phone has a better camera in it.

    Mine too. Coincidentally my neighbor's 2013 GMC Terrain's camera is virtually Hi-Def and his navigation screen has much better color and info than CUE.
    The right hand certainly does not know what the left hand is doing at GM.

    It is of horrendous quality... As problematic as my Benz was, the backup camera was crystal clear. I also have a couple of Ford products with crystal clear backup cameras. I have had a few loaner Cadillacs and all have equally as terrible cameras. Tempting to replace it with something that is clearer.

    Agreed! My 2008 escalade had much better resolution. Come to think of it, my 2000 flip phone had a better camera, too. Cadillac should recall this joke of a camera!

    Yeah, I want a 1080p 240hz refresh rate with 3D. And I don't want to have to use 3D glasses!

    Re: Rear back up camera

    I did a search and found this thread. I bought a 2013 XTS Platinum last week and the backup camera is all blurry. I have a Chrysler and a Lincoln and the cameras are like HD clear. I brought it to my dealer today and the service manager says it is normal. I just can't believe it. Has anyone replaced their camera?

    I've had better and I've had worse. I am sure it's just a generic camera from the GM parts bin to save a buck.

    Of course it's a cheap camera. GM's cost accountants are at work again to find ways to cut costs. The camera in my Buick Enclave is very clear.

    Mine is crystal clear in my CTS, almost as good a resolution as the 8 megapixel camera in my Samsung S2.
