On my 2016 Ram the back up camera icon was on the screen all the time. I used it daily as I was pulling forward to ensure I pulled far enough forward. On my new truck Its not a huge deal but I have to hit a few buttons to pull up the camera. Is there a way to get that icon on the main screen?

You can add and configure screens differently with different widgets. Make your main screen with a widget called “Shortcuts” then you can add 6 individual shortcuts to that widget. Make one of them surround camera. Then your front view is 2 taps away at all times, one tap to view surround and one more for the specific front view.

There might be better options, I’m still learning this as well.

Not sure if the OP has Uconnect 5, I assumed he did. I wish you could still do that. I don’t know why they did away with it.

Uconnect 5 - I miss the one click on my 2021, but on the applications page (one click) you can put the camera widget on that page then second click for camera.

It seems somewhere that I saw a video of some guy replacing his temp icon on the screen with the camera icon on uconnect5, but I can't find it again. He just did a drag and drop saying the temp was on his dash so he would rather have the camera on the screen vs a redundant temp. I tried, no go... He said on that video you could do it with those icons at the top... He must have lived on a different plane of reality and I stumbled across it.
