If I remember correctly there's a camera button on the infotainment. What do you suppose this is for? I'm hoping there's a camera in the front so you can tell how close to a curb you are, or even better yet have it be like the C8 where you can record. So you can either look at how to improve your lap times or figure out what a**hole hit you. This a dumb question but I'm a dumb person so... here we are.

Not dumb at all...I think it’s a super question.
I just stupidly presumed it was for the rear camera, but it makes more sense that it would be for something up front...hope it is anyway

It could be for the Around View Monitor that most Nissan's that have the Tech package/highest trim come with. It would be amazing if the Z came with it, as we already know it'll come with the Radar Cruise Control (huge box thing in middle of front Grille) and Front and Rear Parking sensors.

Never heard of such a thing, so looked it up
AWESOME!
Do you know if you can leave it running when not in the car? I’d love to be able to catch those bastards that wreck my doors in shopping centres!

Good news! You can bet I'm getting that around view monitor if that truly comes to be. BMW probably calls it something different, but I've seen a similar camera setup in the new M cars and just thought I'm shelling out some serious dough for something like that. Probably still will if it's in the highest trim level but totally worth it imo. Parking the 370 is a dance with death lol.

It is not possible (Currently) in the vehicles that I have tested.

Yea, Nissan/Infiniti was first to come out with this Birds Eye/Around View in the 2007 G35 and it's FINALLY making their way to other manufacturers. Same thing with the Synchrorev match. It was hated so much by so many enthusiasts, but now its made its way into even the infamous 911 GT3.

In my Q50S and my Wife's Maxima Platinum, the 360 cam comes in handy - it spoils you really.

My wife's Rogue has this. It really comes in handy when parking. I truly hope it's in the new Z as well.

Rear view cams are mandatory , if it has the front that would be a bonus

360 view has been available in other market for a long time.
US was late to have it.
The 360 view is based on four videos stitched together from four camera videos (front, two sides and rear) with software.
One automaker even has an under-chassis view for off road use. That makes the floor transparent.

Yes, our stealthy F35 has the same idea. Our pilot can see through the floor.
Infrared video in this case.

Nissan was first to market in the US with AVM in the 2010 Rogue IIRC.

I have it in my Titan, and I don't think I'd be comfortable with driving a truck this big without it. I never wanted for it in my 370Z, but if it's an option I'll happily take it. It's a wonderful feature.
