    Anybody else get a blue screen and a "camera system unavailable " message when shifting into reverse?

    My first thought would be a loose connection in the trunk lid where the camera connects. That's easier to check than a loose connection in the back of the head unit under the dash.

    Nope not me. Sounds like you need to make the dreaded trip to the dealer...

    Sounds like a bad connection to the camera or bad UConnect flash on the software.

    That'll be a warranty claim at the dealership.

    def sounds like you may need some type of software update and possibly a module that may need replacement. most modules can be updated without needing replacement

    The blue screen of death as we say like we do when our PC's do it. there are at least two modules that affect performance of this radio, telematics and
    RFH. both of them also have updated flashes for software

    Haven't tried to reset anything. Figured it would be a software glitch or something as it is intermittent.
    How would one reset the uconnect?

    That's the same screen I got when I disconnected my camera to remove the spoiler for painting. Reconnected the camera and it all worked again.
