Default View cameras while in drive?

Is there a way to manually switch on the external cameras while the car is in drive, such as while pulling into a parking spot or garage? So far it seems the camera system only switches on while in reverse.

Push the P button. It will only work when almost stopped and go off as soon as you drive. The P button in under the screen to the right of the other hard buttons.

Hit the P^ button on dash for on-demand camera action.
Otherwise, your parking sensors and cameras should come on in tight parking spot, if you are hearing beeps but no camera (aside from top view graphic bug), get it checked.

They’re set to shut off at a certain speed. I increased the speed to 20 mph on mine and that is the max.

Vagcom should allow you to alter the max mph. That's the only way I know of

BTW, that's in k/hr, so the top limit is about 12mph.
