How clear is the picture quality when you use the front camera?In my experience, whenever the surround view monitor button is pressed while in D, under 10mph. It also automatically engages when transitioning from R to D. It goes from showing behind you (in R), to in front of you (in D).
From what I've seen, it will stay on forever if you stay under 10mph. As soon as you exceed that speed, it shuts off and will not engage even if you press the button.
It works really well. I've gotten into a habit of pressing the surround view button whenever pulling into a parking spot just so I can see what's going on right in front of the car (and surroundings and parking lot lines). It's difficult to perform a terrible park job.
It’s crystal clear. There is a “view” button on the dash you can either press as you pull into a parking spot or you can leave the button armed at all times and the forward view will come up anytime below about 8 mph.How clear is the picture quality when you use the front camera?
How do you set the forward view to come on anytime below 8 mph? It’s distracting to me to have to hit it every time I’m parking, but it’s so wonderful to use when parking! I’m used to a more narrow car and I’m conservative when parking. Left to my own devices, I constantly think I can’t fit in a space and the forward camera always shows me that I can!It’s crystal clear.

Yes a co-driver who pushes the button every time just when you need it is a nice option. I need to get one of those hahaI haven't actually done it yet - but I think you can press the surround view button anytime you're driving (above 10mph), and it'll come on the next time you drop below 10mph. The amber indicator light on the button should stay illuminated while it's armed.
This could make stop signs and traffic lights engage it - then when you finally have to park is it still engaged? I think you have to re-arm it every time you start driving.
Not sure it will set it to come on every time...but could be wrong. The button is close to passenger side...maybe I can train my co-driver
