How To Use The Ford F-150 Camera Views On Demand Feature: Video

With each passing refresh and generation, the Ford F-150 – like most every other vehicle on earth – comes equipped with more and more cameras. The benefits of these Ford F-150 camera views are obvious, giving truck owners a better view of what’s going on around their pickups, which makes them safer and easier to navigate through tight spaces.

However, some owners may not know exactly how the Ford F-150 Camera Views On-Demand feature works, which is why the automaker has come up with this informative video explaining just that. As it points out, 2021 Ford F-150 pickups come equipped with a variety of cameras that provide an overhead view of the truck’s bed, what is immediately behind the truck, and what is behind a hitch trailer.

These views can be seen while the truck is in park or neutral, as well as in drive at speeds up to six miles-per-hour. To view them, simply press the camera button located above the SYNC 4 screen. Next, press the menu icon in the upper left-hand corner of the touchscreen. Now, multiple camera views will be displayed, which the driver can choose from.

The bed camera provides a view of cargo stored in the bed and lets the owner know at a quick glance whether or not the tailgate is open or closed. An available auxiliary trailer camera shows what is located behind a trailer while it’s being towed, though it must be purchased and installed separately.

By default, the rearview camera is always displayed when backing up, and there is also a bird’s eye view of the truck to show what lies around it.

    How can all these cameras be turned into the ultimate dashcam system?
    Why isn’t protective system on police and miltary F-150s available as an option?
    No more wires hanging from mirrors, etc.
