My take so far is that video resolution, screen quality, and optical distortion (within the camera) are very important to making camera systems work.I find the rear camera great for backing up at low speed but the side view cameras just do not inspire confidence at any speed. I find myself checking the mirrors in most situations. The backup camera has very little value at highway speeds.
I wonder if is just the size of the image? I feel like it just needs more magnification to provide a similar experience as a mirror.
I think incorporating the FSD AI to display an augmented view might solve some of my concerns.
The backup camera in my Sierra got a lot more useful when I replaced the head unit with a more modern aftermarket head-unit with a better screen.
There's no replacement for using the good stuff on safety-critical systems.
