Parking Assistance Front camera question

When the car is in Drive with front bumper camera turned on does the camera image turn left or right when steering wheel turn? Iíve seen this in X5 not sure G20 does the same?

Backup camera does indeed rotate when in parking mode.

Edit: checked this morning, this also count for front in parking mode.
I'm talking about the view on the screen. The camera itself is fixed and doesn't rotate.

That's good to hear. Yes, just the image rotation not the actual camera that's a cool feature because you can see around the corner.

Around the corner as almost 90 degrees to left/right to check for traffic? There is also the regulate camera view which has an almost 180 degree view which I use for that.

Yes, when I test drove it I can see the corners on both front and back camera due to wide angle. Especially for backup camera when the wheel turns you should be able to see the corners better for pedestrians and oncoming cars.

Isn't there a "wash view" that will show your tire track when you want to pull into a car wash?
