Pearl RearVision Auto Reset (rear view camera)

NOTE: as of late 2018, it appears these steps may no longer work 🙁 They are still listed here for reference purposes, in the even that Pearl decides to fix the issue!

Having trouble connecting to your RearVision?
To recover your password or fix connectivity issues just perform this quick reset. Please note that it is a very time sensitive process.

You need to make sure you are on the latest version of the Pearl RearVision App (and cannot be on a beta version). The App Version should be 1.5 or later. You should then unplug the OBD adapter and wait exactly two minutes. Next, plug the adapter back and wait exactly 3 minutes. At this point open the Pearl App (version 1.5 or later) and begin setup. The OBD adapter will automatically share its Wi-Fi password with the app.

Please, you should also make sure you write down this password in case you ever need it in the future.

Tip: When charging your RearVision through the USB port make sure that it is not plugged in upside down

    JD, Thanks for posting this. I tried the steps listed above. Where would I see the password displayed?

    Didn’t work for me tried it a couple of times

    • Dear Stephen,
      Thank you for your comment. I believe you are correct, it seems Pearl has changed something and these steps may no longer work 🙁

      Best regards,

    I transferred a Pearl from my old car to a new one, putting it on the front as it came with a back-up camera installed. It seems the parts have to re-learn their connectivity but it worked after a couple of attempts. My only problem is the display is left-right switched but OK to warn me of low obstructions where I can’t see in front.

    • Dear Ray, I am very happy you were able to use your Pearl camera as a front view camera! 🙂

      Have a GREAT weekend and thank you for taking the time to visit my blog.

      Best regards,

    It appears that you are correct.
    After many attempts at connecting the camera to my I-phone, I have not been successful.
