But backing out a car in a parking lot/space when cars are parked on both sides means the driver literally cannot see a thing
Are you familiar with summon? I hav used it a couple times just because I didn't want to exit the parking space from inside the car. Like a remote control, I can move the car fwd or rev and then jump into it once it clears the space. Used it at work the other day when I had 3 others join me. Why get in/out of the car in a tight space when you can pull it forward and open doors with ease.
I totally get you. Of all things, this wouldn't be my deal-break, but it's fine if it's yours, I respect that. I'm thinking it could be a software piece they could add at some point it the future to all existing cars. We have rear sonar and rear cameras, nothing more than my Outback had. No reason they couldn't do it I wouldn't think.
