First annoying problem since I bought the GM5150 when it first came out. Reverse camera screen stays on only when I have my headlights turned on. When headlights are off, the screen will revert from the reverse camera screen automatically when I shift out of reverse. Anyone have any ideas?

Sounds like the activation wire is wired to the headlights instead of the reverse lights.

Thanks for the response. I have to triple check that. I had it wired to the wire in the glove box for at least 2 years and it's been behaving perfectly until I resoldered it the other day

Sorry to dredge up old threads! I cant get the units button lights to stay on. ive tried the dimmer and it up full they just turn off as soon as the unit hits home screen. i can change the colors and all of them work butt they shut off immediately. any ideas? Also is there a firmware update for the gm51050 past 4.4.4?
