The Problem: The backup camera and display settings can be adjusted such that the rearview image is no longer visible and the system will retain that setting the next time the vehicle is placed in Reverse, increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Dealers will update the backup camera software for free.

Owners can call BMW at 800-525-7417, Rolls-Royce at 877-877-3735, Toyota at 888-270-9371, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
