Defender or Bronco?
Eh... doesn't look intentional. Just regular dumb people who aren't paying attention. Happens to everyone's car sooner or later. Usually its those pesky door dings....

Yeah, those bins can become unruly, especially if the surface is rough. But I do like the ability of the car to monitor periphery and alert you if there's an incursion of any kind. Most dash cams have a similar feature, but with an OEM system, it could link to the cellular connection the car has and give you real-time data. And there's a lot you could do with that - your own driveway/front door monitor, and other applications.

I'm assuming this is some way to charge extra for basic dash-cam like properties by slapping a trademarked moniker or convenience on it?

You'd think with all the cameras especially on pickups. There would be a way to have them record wouldn't take a whole lot.

Dashcam is not

Gonna need a lot of dashcams and good splicing software, and don't forget the motion detectors to link them to in order to get a 360 view of your car that is not running all the time.

3 normal ones. They have wide angle lenses and batteries, motion sensors and/or g-sensors. At least any decent one worth buying does (usually around $100-$200).

The only thing they're doing is integrating them into the vehicle, which is good, and I think more manufacturers should, but it's not that special or inventive.

You should get right on that. If you can sell me a Sentry Mode Set up for $300 that integrates with my dashboard LCD and does not look like Mad Max running wires all over my car, I'm in.

But, you can't. So why be such a downer man.

I like it, I'd get it if it was an option...also have the option to flip it on to capture your wheeling adventures, then easily sync to phone at the end of your trip wirelessly. Corvette has a version of this for track days.
This.
