That looks like it would be a fun toy. I just couldn't live with the boot time that was mentioned. Sheesh, 20 seconds is an eternity when you are waiting to backup. Hopefully when they get the new processor it will behave more like the OEM setup with regards to readiness.

No clue. I did see one with a PX5 for the Kuga/Escape on the internet somewhere. It wasn't Phoenix though.

You don't have to wait to backup. The camera will work nearly instantaneous to starting the vehicle. The 20 seconds would be when the music starts playing.

Yes it will support factory or aftermarket cameras. Espony Cargo even sells a 360 camera system that is supposed to work with it. Haven't seen any videos or pics of it though.

If you can find a company to sell you the PX5 version of the mainboard, it is that easy. Tons of guys have done this with other Android HUs.
