Default Using the reversing camera at any speed?

Evening all,

Does anyone know if theres a way to prevent the reversing camera being disabled when above 10mph? (of whatever the speed is)
Would love to be able to use it to keep an eye on my trailer when towing as it's too small to see in the mirrors, always nice to be sure no straps have come lose or anything.

Thanks

It’s controlled by software, using speed data over the CAN bus

So rewrite the vehicles software to change the behaviour - which of course you cannot do.

Can a passenger activate the camera when at speed for a brief period? I am not sure.

You can use a dash cam placed on the rear window and wired to your infotainment system,can't you.

Only if the Volvo infotainment system has a spare AV IN port you can use.

The main point a reverse camera is cut off when moving forward is that you are not allowed video in a car when moving , how they get away with navigation maps i don't know . The very moment you are looking at the rear camera image is when you have the accident of course .... An accident is usually caused by 3 unusual things happening at the same time in at the same split second in the same space .....one of those things is looking at a video in car when driving ...

Sat Nav screens are classed as a "driver aid" and not a video image. As such they are allowed.

It will not be long before you are looking at photographic images on the screen like google street view , the building outlines are already there on the volvo maps ...
