Active Guidelines for Rear View Camera?

We just picked up our new 2013 Focus last week. It was a factory order, and has been absolutely fantastic so far.

My car is equipped with the "parking technology package" (sensors/camera/park assist), but has the standard SE Sync radio (not MFT). It's possible to equip an SE like this in Canada, and it's one of the reasons we custom ordered the car (we didn't want leather, MFT, chrome, sunroof, etc.)

My question has to do with the reverse camera. While it shows the fixed guidelines (green/yellow/red) and a fixed white centre line, it doesn't appear to be giving me active guidelines (the lines that move with the steering wheel). I can't seem to find any configuration menus for the rear camera (the ones mentioned in the manual seem to be for MFT). This also includes configuration for things like rear camera delay, turning guidelines on/off, etc.

I was wondering if anyone can confirm that, for my configuration, there is no active guidelines (and no configuration menu). Or, alternatively, if there is a configuration menu somewhere that I'm being too slow to find.

I have a 2013 Ti with MFT, the only lines that move with the car are the white lines that tells you where you are going. You can choose to have the guidelines, active + fixed or just fixed. I found this out after a similar question on here.

Is your display in the rear view mirror? Might be different?

Thanks for the reply.

My car has a stereo like the following (although without Sirius). When I put the car in reverse, the backup camera appears in the 4" display (over top of whatever else is there). I tried pressing the multifunction and menu buttons while it was on, but they don't seem to do anything.


The settings mentioned in the manual (for switching between ACTIVE+FIXED/FIXED/OFF, etc.) are in the MFT menu tree, but don't appear to be in my radio (and aren't showing up on the multifunction display in the cluster either). The car also gives me the rear camera delay (the camera stays on until I get up to speed) without any option to turn it off.

I am not sure, it obviously has different features than the MFT equipped version?

For reference, I've taken some pictures of my radio. Regular radio operation:


Park assist:


Back-up camera, with a fixed (non-moving) centre line:


As far as I can tell, the radio settings have no "vehicle" settings as mentioned in the manual (which seems to be for the MFT version). There also doesn't seem to be any settings in the cluster display:


As I've said, the owner's manual is pretty vauge about this configuration, so I was hoping there might be some more information out there about if there is a settings menu for the rear-view camera on a standard Sync radio.
