Reverse camera guide lines?

Does a 2016 GC CP have guide lines on the reverse camera? Is there a setting to turn them on?
Thanks.

My 2016 convertable has them, so I'd think the GC does too.

2016 GC models do. You can switch the lines on and off. If you're asking because you saw The Smoking Tire review on YouTube then he failed to spot that the option was there.

For instructions...it is discussed in the owners manual. If you don't have one...just do a quick Google search for a "2016 BMW owners manual PDF". ..then download it to the device of choice.

Quick tip...I think on your iteration of iDrive...the on/off selectionar for guidelines is located along the left side of the screen. Scroll down or up the icons on the left side of the screen (depending on where the controller cursor is positioned) and this should allow you to turn the guidelines on.

Thanks.
As mentioned above...the ability to turn the reversing guidelines as well as 3D objects that are in your reversing path are located along the left side of the iDrive screen. Scroll down and activate them...probably by pressing down on the controller knob (you will see a red check mark illuminate if you want them on). You can do this for both the 3D warning as well as the guidelines. In the pic below, the guidelines can be seen and verified by the red check mark in the selection box to turn the on. The 3D objects can NOT be seen because it is not activated...and that too can be seen when you look at the selection box...there's no red check mark:
