Nissan/Infiniti was the first I believe to put this technology ("all around view") on their production cars. I believe they may have also pioneered and sold the technology to other manufacturers if I am not mistaken. That being said Infiniti includes a front camera as does Lexus...Why BMW failed to offer a camera for the front is anybody's guess. My former 2011 QX56 had the feature and there is a noticeable difference without the front camera
