Possible alternative is to better shield it from splatter. Are there windshield squeegees and towels at Superchargers? ;=)

  • NISSAN has a clever solution: self cleaning rear camera with water and air ;-)

  • alternative could be a closed system, where the camera is protected unless you reverse and the camera will be unhidden; this would allow to use the camera only when reversing  :-(

This is a problem on my X, in rain, the rear cam is frequently so splattered with dirty water that the image is practically useless.  The cam on my 2008 RX400h, on the other hand, doesn't ever seem to get anywhere near that compromised.  Camera placement?
