Short answer: No, I do not.
Longer answer: The first camera I purchased (replaced under warranty due to bad connector) only ever calibrated once. When I finally got around to hooking up the new one, the existing calibration settings "worked". I had invisible trailer, but it was really distorted. I forced a new calibration and the view worked much, much better. My truck required a 2nd calibration on the 2nd drive (I'm thinking "here we go again....") but it's been rock-steady ever since. I shut the truck off immediately after the first calibration was complete, so maybe I shut down the system too quickly before everything could be saved?
I can confidently say yours is not working correctly. My story shows the calibration is not camera-specific. This implies that you have a problem with the video display module (or whatever they're calling it). If this were my situation, I would be giving my dealer the full court press on getting to the bottom of it. My dealer wasn't interested in helping me. I filled out the post-service survey honestly. Within several days, GM Corporate called me and wanted more details. They then scheduled service appointments with a different dealer who didn't return my truck until they had an answer. If your guys aren't interested in fixing things, call GM customer service directly and get them to own your problem. These guys (well, ladies actually) are really good.
Good luck. And let me know how you make out with this...either here or on the other forum that we run into each other.
