not sure if anybody cares but i did find out that if you splice an aftermarket camera into your uconnect, enable all the rear view camera options in alfa obd and then enable the CHMSL camera present option, it will allow you to add the soft key and activate the rear camera at any time while youre driving. but it will not automatically show the camera when you put it in reverse youll have to hit the cargo cam button. this is on a 2014 1500 bighorn

I believe that this is intended as if you have a backup camera, it wants you to see what's gonna hit the tailgate/bed first.

according to here... it isn't available until 2016+
That is a little funny, I also had this with my 2014 1500 with the RA4. So it was available in 2014 but I have the same exact issue as jhiggins.
