Hello Together,

is it possible to enable afterwards the 180 degree view mode? (Fiesta Titanium MK8)

I have this view in my Focus MK4 and would like to add this feature to our Fiesta.

The fiesta is not equipped with the dead angle sensor

Maybe the Focus-Camera is required for that?

This evenig I get the Fiesta back and then I will check with FORscan what is possible.

I found also out, that a different camera is available

New Version:
L1BT-19G490-AA

Old Version:
H1BT-19G490-AE

On my Focus, the FORscan otpion for split view is set.

The dealer said today, he *think* it is just a software setting to enable it.

I'll keep you updated.

I got the Fiesta back and tried to interchange the cameras between the Focus and the Fiesta.

This is impossible, the Focus camera cannot fit into the placeholder for the Fiesta camera because it it sligthly bigger than the one from the Fiesta.

So the Focus camera is not the key.

I also tried to set the option for SplitView to true, but this also dont work, even the SplitView button was not shown.
Maybe this is triggerd by the hardware of the camera.

I'll try to get one of the newer cameras and report back.

He is talking about the rear Camera, Not the front Camera!

It's a rear view camera module non compatibility issue it explains why it's not working in the Fiesta since both cars have the same Sync system with the feature activated in both of them so you need the appropriate module.
