Reversing camera

Just got a reversing camera installed by VW themselves (6 months after buying).

Looks like any reversing camera I've ever seen except the guide lines don't move when you move the steering wheel. I've seen a lot of these cameras in the past and never seen one where the lines don't move.

VW are trying to tell me theirs is different but it feels like I'm being fobbed off. Anyone here got one or know for sure? Thanks.

So you are asking do the lines move in a factory fitted camera?
No, unfortunately they don't.

Can't comment on the t-Cross haven't got it yet, however my Tiguan, there are one set of lines that are directly back from the car sides, and another set that curve according to the steering wheel to show you where the car will actually go as you turn. Though from the picture in the brochure it may not be ..

Thanks. Confused now though. :o Got one person telling me they dont move and another telling me they potentially do move. Not sure whether to push back on VW or not. :?

interestingly, that picture doesnt quite look like the one that I have got. My "car" graphic is on the left hand side and I seem to have three different coloured lines, whereas that appears to only have two.

Oh well, thanks for responding anyway.

Also concerned as my wife has selected the car and is expecting the guide lines the same as my Tiguan. While its still useful for her, the guide lines do help additionally.
