Do you use the nose wheel camera to taxi?

On bigger aircraft like the 747, 777, and now the 787, there is a camera that sits behind the nose wheel. I use it to taxi whenever I fly the 777. I’m a perfectionist (although nobody’s perfect) so I like to keep the nose gear on the taxi way lines. I was just wondering if anyone else does the same thing? Or anything similar?

I just use the following camera.

I do. I don’t like being even the foot of the line

In RL the nose gear is not always on the taxi line, especially for heavies or stretched variants as sometimes keeping the nose gear on the line means having the main gear in the grass. Ideally keeping the taxi line between the main gears is ideal. at 8:23 of this video you can see a text book example. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tDGhJ6rziDs

Yeah I get that now, sometimes I swing out wide to keep at least the middle of the plane on center.

I usually taxi in cockpit cam, sometimes the following cam.

The nose cam is great for straight taxi ways though! :)

I use the tail view for my flights so I can taxi pretty easily
