As we've seen, it can also be used to catch a valet flogging your car in a parking garage.

But while owners have found the data useful, there have been complaints about the somewhat murky quality of the imagery. And in one of his periodic Q&As with the faithful fans of CorvetteForum, he addressed a question about the shortcomings, and more importantly, offered a solution, stating:

"Coincidentally, a software change was just released for Bowling Green production at the end of March and we will be making it available to customers who already have their cars in the next few weeks. The software includes several changes including improvements in color balance and sharpness of the image on the video."

How about them apples?
