I see that the touring model comes with a front camera. I am wondering under what circumstances could it be useful?
Does it record (as in like a dashcam)?
Thanks!

It's an amazing parking camera, and comes in handy when off roading in tight spots.

You can leave it on ALL the time. It made me carsick watching for about 10 minutes while driving. Very nice in pulling into tight and short spots.

I was going to comment about making your passengers nauseous by leaving the front camera on when you are driving. I find adjusting the rear mirror on my Touring to the camera mode can induce some nausea as well!!
Given the current setup, I prefer sensors as opposed to the front camera, but, I think if the front camera displayed on the main screen ( as opposed to the small upper screen) it would be much more useful and I would prefer it over sensors in that case ( although I do understand not wanting to have people look at their center console as opposed to over the hood of the car when they are parking).
