Hi, quick question from a new owner

Hello, hopefully I have my profile set up right now...Just recently bought a 07 Jeep Commander, however it doesn't appear the back up camera is trying to turn on. In the manual it says to go to system settings menu. I have no idea where that is at, it says refer to the Navigation Manual, however accessing the navigation menus appear to require a disc that I do not have. What am I missing?

Your profile is good to go now @Dyson350; thank you.

I don't have the factory NAV Radio so, if I ask some questions that may sound silly to you, please forgive me.

You don't have a touch screen menu with a settings tab when you touch your radio display? I know there is an update disk for the Factory Navigation system, but I was not aware that you needed a disk just to access the system settings - that sounds kind of off to me.

In any event I highly doubt that is the problem with your back-up camera; I had a similar issue with my XK when I bought it but my problem was intermittent; the back-up camera displayed good video when I first bought it and then basically went black shortly thereafter - but the display for the radio itself still worked fine for any radio & CD player related functions;

It (The back-up camera) would start working again every so often - but for very brief periods. I tried replacing the back-up camera first as that was the cheaper of the 2 solutions; but ALAS, that didn't solve the issue; next step was replacing the head unit; $1030.00 later (the cost of the reconditioned factory head unit & labor to have it installed) the problem was fixed. I have went to an aftermarket head unit since then, for much improved reliability.

Nope, no touch screen. And I am not seeing any buttons to get to any kind of system settings menu. Owners manual says to use the Navigation Manual but even in it I don't see anything. The Jeep doesn't give any indication that it is trying to use the rear camera which is why I thought it may be turned off for some reason.

I mean I guess it's possible - but I would think it's pretty unlikely that the camera display has been turned off.

Like I said, I know they do have a Navigation update disk for the Factory NAV Radios but they are $150.00; I'll post a link for it here in a minute in case you decide you want to order one.

EDIT: Here is the link for the 06/07 Commander NAV System update disk;

Some Commanders with the non-NAV system have the backup camera go to the rear view mirror.

Can you post pics of your Head Unit and rear mirror?

The 2007 RER system isn't a touch screen. You can buy nav dvds online for like $10 if you want. There's a plastic piece that you remove with a paper clip and that's where it goes.

Personally, I'd replace it. It doesn't have any good Bluetooth functionality. Time to upgrade to a system that is 12 years newer

Do you have your factory build sheet?

If so, does it say that your Commander comes with the factory navigation system?

If you don't have your factory build sheet - you can get it fairly quickly by following the instructions below:

To get the factory build sheet for your Commander, click on the link below and navigate to "Your Vehicle" click on "Equipment Listing" and then enter your VIN number in the box that says "VIN" and hit "Search". The factory build sheet will list all of the factory options & optional preferred equipment packages that your vehicle had installed from the factory when it was built.

If I am understanding the question right, yes it does come with the Nav system..but missing the disc. I checked to see if a camera was in the back and there is as well.

I imagine you should still be able to enter the REC hidden menu without a navigation DVD. Press the NAV button then hold down the 2 and 6 buttons until you enter the hidden menu.

From there, you should be able to see different vehicle features, including radio connections, car input signals, etc. I'm not sure if the camera will show up in the system links menu, but that's a good thing to check. Also check that you've got a good reverse feed to the radio from the hidden menu; if the system never sees a reverse signal, it won't switch over to the camera view.
