Dash cam woes.

To cut a long story short (as I just managed to delete my first attempt).

I have fitted a dashcam that fits to the, redundant, rear view mirror in our camper van. It comes with a rear view camera too, which I spent all day fitting yesterday. The dashcam works beautifully, but the rear camera's image is upside down and back to front. I can't find anything in the camera settings to correct this, nor in the instructions. Any ideas?

This is a long shot, have you tried turning the camera 180 degrees?I have a camera at work, when we set it up that was the same until we turned that 180!!
Not sure about the back to front tho'.

The camera is designed such that when you reposition it in the mount (180 deg) it will not point downwards. I have removed it from the mount and turned it round and yes, it makes the image the right way up, but objects are still on the wrong side, which is not good when reversing + I'd need to find another way of mounting the camera. In other ways a bodge.

For some reason my camera is now not showing back to front! I have had to stick it to the back of my motorhome with Sikaflex because the mount does not work upside down (or right way up obviously not made for looking down although it was sold under "motorhomes") It actually is very good at its job - just a stupid mount.
