  1. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Hello everyone, long time lurker, first time poster! I figured out engineering mode for the current software update (210326). I also show how to access the camera settings to adjust to it to your own personal preference. Here is the link to my YouTube video on this. Please do this at your own...
  2. Entertainment: Audio, Navigation, and Electronics
    Hello all, I am planning to install a new headunit this week and I was wondering if anyone has had any luck with retaining the factory camera. I am fairly confident that I can physically adapt the connection to RCA but I'm concerned about signal compatibility. I have a 2015 Optima LX with UVO...
  3. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    I'm installing some extra cameras into my Phoenix 12 inch head unit, and had an idea, that I'd like to get some input on: The general idea is to take the two side camera inputs, and instead route them to a pair of cameras at the front bumper, instead of off to each side. I have already...

    Hi, I am a new owner of a Kia Optima from 2012 and I also have a problem with the reverse camera, more precisely, when I put the lever in reverse mode, the display does not change (as normal, given that it has the camera on the back ). Has anyone else encountered a similar problem to help me...

    I recently bought a pioneer ND-BC8 to use with my new HU. I wired it up and everything and the display switches to the camera view, but it stays black. The video wire is plugged into the HU, ground wire grounded to the frame. Now, I bridged the red wire to both the reverse light wire and the...

    So last week I bought the Pioneer ND-BC8 back up camera to install along with my AVIC-5201NEX head unit. I got the camera mounted and the wires routed; but I'm having trouble finding the reverse light wire to splice into so the HU will automatically switch to the camera when I shift into...

    First, at the risk of being scolded for starting a new thread on this topic, I could not find anything regarding this on any existing threads that have not been stagnant for a few years now. Therefore I decided to start a new one. My camera on my '13 EX within the last few weeks started flaking...

    I have a 2013 Optima SX. Lately the backup camera has been giving me problems. I cleaned the lens with windex, followed by alcohol to remove any greasy buildup. It helped some, but I've come to realize that the camera looks out of focus. Does anyone know if this can be adjusted and how? I'd...
  9. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    2013 Optima EX I’m not 100% sure yet but I’m thinking about getting an Owl dash camera. I have read: (1) Optima Forums’s threads here and here. (2) Dash Cam Talk’s thread on the Owl camera. I am aware of: (1) The Owl camera being pricy and newer to the field of dash cameras. (2) Dash cameras...
  10. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    2011 SX 104k miles Sorry guys and gals, couldn't find which section of the forum this topic was being discussed. Obviously, outside of the warranty but what are my options for replacement of the back-up camera apart from the Stealership? I have black screen but the green/yellow/red guidelines...
  11. New Member Introductions
    Hi! Been a member for a little while, just haven't posted anything. Followed a few threads. I have a 2016 Optima SX-T and I am curious if anyone has attempted to add a front facing camera (OEM)? Since the SXL and SX-T are pretty similar I wonder if the camera is plug and play?
  12. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Does anyone know if the camera is adjustable? Mine seems to be aiming a little low now. Thumbnail below. Thanks!
  13. Entertainment: Audio, Navigation, and Electronics
    yup, i had the reversing camera replaced at around 70K miles, now at 133K miles, its died again, so obviously the kia camera is crap, so,, is it possible to get a cheap reversing camera to run off the original set up so it comes on in the rear view mirror when reverse is selected? otherwise, i...
  14. Entertainment: Audio, Navigation, and Electronics
    Hi gang, I've searched the forums since getting here and haven't found the info I'm looking for. I'm going to be replacing my stock head unit (non-nav) and adding a back up camera. I'm good on replacing the radio, I've found tutorials on that. But I haven't found tutorials on adding the backup...

    Does anyone know what the resolution is on the OEM backup camera?
  16. The Service Center
    So my backup camera has been acting strange and the image has been super jittery. has anyone else had this happen? It seems to work one day and be broken the next, no rhyme or reason to the occasions. I hate to fix something that's not broken, but this is just driving me nuts.... here are a few...
  17. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    I saw an old thread for the older gen Optimas that discusses this problem but didn't see if someone discovered solution to the grainy quality. Now I'm curious if this issue is happening the 4th gen Optimas. I have a 2016 SXL and the picture quality looks very grainy/fuzzy especially at night. I...
  18. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Not sure if this is covered, but after I noticed a weird line through the front facing live view of the car I noticed I have a crack running through the lens of the camera; crack goes from northwest to southeast on the picture. I wonder if the wonderful Kia Service Department will be that is...
  19. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Yes, first rock 'chip' hits the freaking camera. Called dealer and said bumper has to come off. Haven't had a single good experience with that, mainly due to pesky tabs that readily break, so not planning to replace it if that's the case. At least not now. Also wanted to install fiberglass...
  20. Engine and Technical Discussion
    Greetings, Yesterday my back-up camera started going black. The green, red and yellow lines are still present but there is no video feed. Could anyone offer up suggestions? 2011 Optima SX with 90K miles TIA
