Default HELP! Speed up back up camera view!!

Ok I had a Lexus IS company car before I got my 2012 fx4. Well on the IS form there was a way to speed up the Lexus intro on your Nav screen when you get in your car so you could throw it in reverse and get going! I'm sick and tired of getting in my truck starting it up and waiting forever for the back up camera to turn on!! Please help
There has got to be a way to speed this process up!

No way to speed it up, the boot screens are there for a reason, to buy time while the system starts up. You shouldn't be just turning the truck on and slamming it in reverse regardless. Let the truck idle for a few seconds to get the fluids flowing.

"Forever" is really only a couple of seconds. Just take a deep breath and relax.

After I got my first car with backup sensors years ago, I became pretty lazy. It had horrible rear visibility though and the Morris were about 8" tall by 4" wide. They were worse than rear visibility.

At least with these trucks, they have good mirrors and even with a leer shell, rear visibility is pretty good. I only use the camera for hooking up trailers and parallel parking.
