That's just another example of poor programming integration with the MFT. That and the SD card errors people w/o nav have been getting is completely mickey mouse and unacceptable.

As for the camera, if you don't get the OEM parts from Ford, I would recommend getting the best aftermarket camera you can get. The MFT is such a nice hi-res screen, I don't think it would look very good with a cheap lo-res camera. It's just a guess, though.
