When shifting into reverse, a small portion of the rearview image may be obscured, or the screen may not illuminate.

If the driver relies on only the rearview camera image, the missing or reduced rearview image view can increase the risk of a crash or injury.

What to do

BMW will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the rearview camera software and update it -- if necessary -- free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin April 12, 2021.

Owners may contact BMW customer service at (800) 525-7417.
