A couple of UI questions

Two things I can't figure out how to do on the UI. Can anyone provide insight?

1) Activate backup camera when not backing up (or after accidentally dismissing the camera while backing up)

2) Recenter the map such that the car is in the middle. I had navigation going and my car drove off the side of the map. I could zoom out and see it, but surely there's a way to reset the current position/zoom and follow back along with the car?

the backup camera is on the left side in the screen that is on most of the time and looks a lot like snapchat spectacles logo lol. It's pretty much always there unless you have windshield wipers on. I've never had to do #2 but its easy enough to move the map around.
