In short, it’s a useful feature that gives you an all-round view of your car and its immediate surroundings, making up for any blind spots and you don’t need to adjust your rear-view mirrors every time. Typically, they use a 4-camera setup, with one placed at the back (like a standard rear parking camera), one at the front (usually integrated into the grille design) and one each on the ORVM. The built-in software can integrate these into a 360-degree view, unlike the configurator on most automakers’ websites, so you can rotate them on your touchscreen infotainment unit, and it also allows for multi-camera viewing.
