Hi-Res Digital Camera

I am getting ready to order a Transit Cargo Van (Hi Roof, EL). My understanding is that the base model van comes with a back-up camera, which provides a B&W display on the small radio screen.
What does the Hi-Resolution Digital Camera do? It's an option that requires upgrading the basic radio to SYNC 4, 12" screen, and costs $930. Would it provide a virtual rear view on the 12" screen as one is driving? IF anyone has it and can describe what the Hi-res camera does, I'd appreciate it.

It's a color picture, on a 5" screen about arm's length from your face. Put your phone in wide-angle camera mode, hold it that far away and see if you can identify anything on it. Meets the letter of the law perhaps, but is largely useless. About all I can use it for is to see where the 6" high concrete parking barrier is, before it goes out of view. When it does, it's time to stop. :)
