So, my Jeep gladiator has the 7 inch screen and a backup camera. The backup camera image only takes up a square portion of the rectangular rario'ed screen. I assumed that's just how it is with that set up, but I had a rental JL today with a 7 inch screen and a backup camera. The back up view takes up the entire 7 inch screen. Why I. The world would they run the setup with one model and significantly worse with a similar model?

I can't find a setting or anything

My 7” uses the entire screen.
My back up view also fills up the whole 7" screen (Sport S).

Everyone else with a 7" screen have the back up view fill the entire screen? Or anyone else like me that only uses the middle of the screen in a square view?

I'd be interested to find out the answer also. Not for me but my wife has a JL with the 7 inch screen, and her camera doesn't fill the screen. There may be a setting I don't know about.

I have the sport s with tow package (not max tow) and it fills the entire screen.

Do you have the tow package?
Can you zoom in on the hitch area?

Those are two things that I can think of that might be different.

I have the tow package on a 20 rubicon and I can zoom in. So it looks like there is two of us that don't have the camera fill the whole screen. Something odd going on.

Ok, it's obvious that it is suppose to fill the whole screen. I'm not seeing a setting for this anywhere. Does anyone know if there is one or where it is?

Here is a picture of mine, I have about .5” on each side of black where there is usually information on the radio screen for example. Are some saying that area is filled with picture?
