2015 BMW M235i: Great Rearview Camera Screen
by Travis Langness, Social Media Editor on January 27, 2016
Dark parking lots, tight parallel parking spaces and bumper-to-bumper tandem parking spots: None of them are a match for the rearview camera in our long-term 2015 BMW M235i.
Much like the 2014 BMW i3 that just left our fleet, the M235i beams the image from its rearview camera through a sharp, high-resolution display. It makes backing up easy.
I wasn't sold on the screen the first time I got in to the M235i. From a design perspective, it seemed a bit tacked-on. But once I got used to BMW's iDrive system, that impression faded immediately.
Quickly, I forgot about the aesthetics of the screen's placement and its function won me over. Look long enough at hundreds of these displays and it's clear that this camera and its accompanying display are one of the best in the business.
