Features you would like added to Pacifica Hybrid

These are a couple features I would like added to my Pacifica Hybrid:

1) Ability to turn on and off the Backup Camera while driving forward. This feature would improve rear visibility, particularly when the interior is filled with packages that are obstructing the view through the rearview mirror.

2) The onboard camera's to have the ability to be turned on and act as a "DashCam", making recordings to a USB drive.

What features would you like to have added?

Let's talk about the software features that realistically could be added to the existing vans.
Just off the top of my head :
Separate fuel consumption in electric and gas modes
More fuel consumption statistics- averages over long periods of time
More customization for uConnect- ability to add buttons to the "settings" screen, start on the screen of your choice every time. I need to push 3 buttons just to see the map.
Speed limit display in the cluster
Remember the position of the movies from USB (this is really inexcusable for 2018)
Games graphics that don't look like they came from Windows 95

LED headlights as options, and HIDs across the board.
Paddles to “kick up” engine RPM for passing, etc...
Switch to turn off or force EV mode.

Stow and go seats! I realize the batteries use the space, but without being able to store the middle row seats without having to remove them was the deal breaker. We haul large stuff a lot more than we haul people.

I have simpler needs. Unexpected things missing from our 2018 PacHy Limited; drivers seat position memory, Android Auto and Apple Carplay, Qi standard charging pad, dealership updatable software...

Paddle or normal switch to quickly change D-L. I keep my hand on the shifter now.
Record cameras to USB
LED Lights
EV Switch to enable/disable EV

Mocnarf, I did manage to accidentally enable the birds-eye and forward/reverse cameras for forward driving this past weekend. I'll see if I can duplicate this and let you know.

Some way to download the historical electric/hybrid mileage data

A device to ease the ache in my jaw, caused by the smug grin on my face every time i silently glide past a gas station :-)
