Uh... Exactly what did Jaguar think you use 360° view for? When you go FORWARD, you can see. When you go BACKWARDS, there is a serious and dangerous visibility issue in all cars, hence 360° view technology. You can't always tell if you are going to clip something with the front corner or side of the car.

Or is there something I'm not doing right?

(note - I have 360° view on my other sedan, so I know when it's needed and when it's not)

Agreed, but seems like something that could be 'fixed' with future software update?

That's what I'm hoping.

But if not, I will probably try to look into how the centerstack knows which gear is in play. If I can tell the stack the car is in PARK when it's not by flipping a switch, suddenly a lot of things will start working differently. Many things you can do in PARK that you can't in D/N/R.

It could be something as simple as a single wire. Or not.

Yeah, that's an odd choice. At the same time, the rear cross traffic view is great, as is front cross traffic view. I'd like a GPS-based way to automatically turn the front one on.

I must second and supplement this comment. While I have been pleased with the rear cross traffic view, I must say the rear cross-traffic warning system is FANTASTIC... it 'sees' cars coming as far as 3-4 spaces over (in either direction) coming when backing out in a parking lot and sounds/flashes alert (uncertain if auto applies brakes as I haven't been brave enough to see if it does that on its own.) :surprise:I haven't yet tested the 'rear door open-side traffic alert' (prevents rear doors from opening when oncoming traffic present), but if its even half as good as the rear cross-traffic alert, this is life-saving tech (I know Jag didn't invent it, but nice to know with kids in the car!)


On a similar note, I've noticed the lane alert/partial steering assist do its job wonderfully when careless (other) drivers drift too close to my lane on the highway. A bit alarming the first couple of times, but well-designed and helpful!
