If that is the surround view you are getting that is pretty disappointing, I think the OPC’s are not well equipped if they can’t get better result than that, understand your disappointment there.

On another thread VanB, WinCo and I debated turbo-lag Vs. economy figures Vs. in-experienced drivers - and it seemed likely that Porsche may have softened the SUV’s responses in Normal/Comfort mode for all or any of those reasons. I found that 95% of the time normal mode was absolutely fine on the SD, only 5% of the time did I put it in Sport to keep the engine running and depart swifter in to tighter gaps but I would often have to be ready to apply brakes after joining traffic I found that perfectly acceptable. I guess your needs are different there and I don’t know if the, GTS, is different of the mark in normal mode, interesting to know?

Like this?

This has to be some sort of calibration error. The black rectangle on mine is perfectly centred on the car, and I've found the surround view superb for parking alongside kerbs.

It only happens on mine very occasionally -by coincidence it happened when I was reading this thread!

Has anyone on here had any luck having their surround cam re- calibrated successfully by their OPC or is it not possible?

Hey! I have another problem. Recently bought a gimbal stabilizer from for my Sony camera. Happy with the purchase. Movements when shooting are smooth, the problem with shaking is now finally solved! Convenient control buttons weighs a little. I have a Sony 6000 and software for this device "Gimbal Pro" doesn't see the camera settings in 4 to and in 1920-1080't see 60FPS only 30FPS!!! What i have to do in this situation? Should I give it back or there is a solution ?
