    Still getting issues with the reverse camera not working or blacking out. Had some updates done (N347 recalls) by LR last week but it seems to have made no difference as since then the rev camera has blacked out twice and we have not been able to turn the stereo off twice. Anyone else experiencing these issues?

    No mine has been good apart from 2 of the cruise control buttons stopped working, could be a hardware fault instead.

    USB indexing maybe...........

    So the silly dramas continue with the reverse camera, drivers TFT and other nuisances. I've had the car to the dealer 3 times now and all they do is update it with little or no appreciable improvement.

    See attached pics and video. Note the gear selected.

    YouTube

    I use a Lexar 32GB USB-3 stick for music that had some 2600 MP3 files on it. The issues are worst at start up and seldom (but sometimes do) occur once the car's been running for say 5 minutes. If I remove the USB and use Android Auto (the same 2600 MP3's on the phone) the issues I've been having go from frequent (daily) to very rare. I ran this way for 4 days with next to no dramas.

    I have a theory (not mine but mentioned in another context on the disco5.co.uk forum) that the car is prioritising the indexing of the USB instead of its core functions of reverse camera and drivers TFT. No USB plugged in, no problems.

    I've tested the Lexar USB-3 stick thinking that its read speed might be the issue but it tests as fast. See attached. I've tried a 16GB Sony USB-2 stick full of MP3s and encounter that same problems. Both sticks are FAT32 and less than the 128GB max stated in the online D5 manual.

    If I put say 1GB of MP3s on the stick the car seems to behave itself although I have not done a lot of testing on this.

    Thoughts anyone?

    No, they are in directories per artist/album.

    Hi

    I'd agree with it possibly overwhelming the cars "entertainment controller", whatever that may be. Try putting all those files onto a small SSD drive. Make sure it has USB 3.0 spec connector. A USB stick (even with USB 3.0 spec) is still far slower than an SSD which accesses it's memory in parallel and has a faster controller. USB sticks don't have that as they are smaller build down to a price.

    My wife's Hyundai is set up so the front sensors only work when the vehicle is in reverse , they have an over ride that you have to remember to switch on when driving forward , If I had known that we would not have payed to have them fitted , I could have bought a set for a 6th of the price & fitted them my self. I asked them to wire them so they work all the time but the recon it can't be done.

    Today I put all the MP3 files on the stick with no folders. The TFT and rev camera started playing up immediately.

    I can understand (but am not happy about) the infotainment system being swamped while trying to index the files (in a car worth $139k I'd expect the sound system carputer to have more grunt but.....) but what I don't get is that this indexing (if that's what what's happening) is taking priority over what is called in my trade as life/safety, in this case the rev camera and TFT. Surely the sound system should be way down the CPU's pecking order of things to do at start-up?

    My 87 yo father has a 2 year old Tucson. The front sensors were after market as Hyundai don't so them as factory and yes there's switch below the steering wheel that Dad sometimes remembers and sometimes not.

    Ex SWMBO 4 YO Hyundai Veloster has factory front and rear sensors. Could have been an off the showroom car that didnít have the option fitted so easier to install aftermarket than order one with them fitted.
