I wish I knew the intent of the "FULL VIEW NOT AVAILABLE" splash across many of the camera screens that make them about useless. Maybe there is a reason and it's one of those RTFM things... :whistle:

Is this on the lightning that you push a button and see the cameras at any point in time? Or another vehicle?
On Lightning Lariat with tow technology and max tow I can pull up cameras while driving. Not all views though. Someone will probably beat me to it but otherwise I’ll try to test which ones on the drive to work tomorrow

One way to get the 360 camera to come on when not in reverse is to pull somewhat close to something and then when the side sensors detect an object it causes the 360 degree camera to come up. The issue with this is once you move away from the object enough the camera turns back off.

Touch the truck in the upper left of the screen, controls tab, then camera (2nd from top). Not all are available while driving. I took a video but can only figure out how to upload pictures via my iPhone.
There’s a three bar menu to click to change camera views.

I feel like when I'm moving forward and dig in the menus to get the button, it always comes up with the front camera. Did that yesterday.

Above 5mph? I can view front/360 cameras moving forward but as soon as I accelerate beyond that speed it’s no longer an option. Camera view closes and when I reopen only backup, hitch, and bed cameras can be selected.

When I'm on the highway, several times now, I've gone into the camera and been able to look at all views. Tailgate, bed, front. Yes when I'm not parking and start moving forward it turns off but I can bring it back up if I want to.

Anybody here smart enough to get the button from a Ford Edge and connect it to our Sync 4a and use something like FORScan to activate it, so those of use with the large screen can get a hard button instead of 3 touch screen clicks?
