Any way to override what that button does? Feels useless, would be better if it took me straight to the 360 camera when I'm parking.
I agree 100%. It would be great if it was a 1 touch Camera “Parking” button.

Heck even a hold to camera, click to current or vice versa would be nice, but as it is I don't think I'll ever touch that button intentionally.

I have never used the button. It wouldn’t do me any good as a camera button in any event, since Ford would not let me buy the 360 cameras. 🤷‍♂️🐩

Even if it only did the reverse camera when the car is stopped for those of us in the cheap seats it is a good idea. When I have something on the hitch platform it is a pain in the butt to get to the camera to check it at lights an such.

I used the self-parking feature once when I first got the MME, just to try it. out I have never/will never use it again. Wasted interior real estate.

Maybe it will have a different function for 2023 since park assist has been dropped.
Rear hatch open would be nice.

And yes, I know I can open it from a control burred somewhere in the center controls or from the FordPass app, but a physical button always trumps a computer in my pea-brain.

It’s a little sad to me how many people never use the self parking. It’s not very good at perpendicular parking so I guess in more spacious areas it’s probably not very useful, but in the big city where half the time you’re squeezing into a tiny parallel parking space, it’s an all star. It’s gotten me into spots with barely a foot of clearance on either side. Works flawlessly like 98 times out of 100.

You are probably right, but I'm at an age and live in an area where if I can't pull-through park I'm looking elsewhere. :)

OMG - I just read the MY23 order guide. I had no idea how badly the vehicle has been decontrnted. They may as well rebrand it the Fiesta Mach E 😢

I like it in the city, my only issue is that, in Philadelphia, if you’re not IMMEDIATELY maneuvering into a parking spot, the moron behind you has pulled directly up to your bumper, so forget about backing into the spot. People here are aggressive idiots about parking spaces.

I have yet to try it in 6 months, but now I have to! I need an excuse to go downtown to find a spot!

I have to say, I haven't used it in my car which I got 9 mo ago. I made a point of using it 2-3 times at the dealer with their car. I'm glad I did it that way because it scared the sh!!t about of me. It goes a bit faster than i would AND it pulls up closer than I would. The salesman had me park between his Explorer and the boss's new Mustang GT which showed a lot of confidence in the car's ability to park.
