6(Rear view only) :
Indicates the predictive course when backing up.
The predictive course lines will be displayed on
the monitor when the shift lever is in the R (Re-
verse) position and the steering wheel is turned.
The predictive course lines will move depending
on how much the steering wheel is turned and
will not be displayed while the steering wheel is in
the neutral position.
The rear-wide view displays an approximately
180–degree area. The predictive course lines are
not displayed on the rear-wide view.

HOW TO PARK WITH PREDICTED
● Always turn and check that it is safe to
do so before backing up. Always back
● Use the displayed lines as a reference.
The lines are highly affected by the
number of occupants, fuel level, vehicle
position, road conditions and road
● If the tires are replaced with different
sized tires, the predicted course lines
may be displayed incorrectly.
● On a snow-covered or slippery road,
there may be a difference between the
predicted course line and the actual
● If the battery is disconnected or be-
comes discharged, the predicted course
lines may be displayed incorrectly. If
this occurs, please perform the follow-
ing procedures: – Turn the steering wheel from lock to
lock while the engine is running.
– Drive the vehicle on a straight road for more than 5 minutes.
● When the steering wheel is turned with
the ignition switch in the ACC position,
the predicted course lines may be dis-
● The distance guide line and the vehicle

● When backing up the vehicle up a hill,
objects viewed in the monitor are fur-
ther than they appear. When backing up
the vehicle down a hill, objects viewed
in the monitor are closer than they ap-
pear. Use the inside mirror or glance
over your shoulder to properly judge
distances to other objects.
The vehicle width and predicted course
lines are wider than the actual width and
course. 1. Visually check that the parking space is safe
before parking your vehicle.
2. The rear view of the vehicle is displayed on the screen
Awhen the shift lever is moved
to the R (Reverse) position.

when the vehicle is on a level, paved surface. The
distance viewed on the monitor is for reference
only and may be different than the actual distance
between the vehicle and displayed objects.
When backing up the vehicle up a hill, the dis-
tance guide lines and the vehicle width guide
lines are shown closer than the actual distance.
For example, the display shows 3 ft. (1m)tothe
A, but the actual 3 ft. (1 m ) distance on the hill
is the place
B. Note that any object on the hill is
viewed in the monitor further than it appears.
Backing up on a steep downhill
When backing up the vehicle down a hill, the
distance guide lines and the vehicle width guide
lines are shown farther than the actual distance.
For example, the display shows 1.0 m (3 ft) to the
A, but the actual 1.0 m (3 ft) distance onthe hill is the place
B. Note that any object on
the hill is closer than it appears on the monitor.

●It may take some time until the RearView
Monitor is displayed after the shift lever has
been shifted to R (Reverse) . Objects may be
distorted momentarily until the RearView
Monitor screen is displayed completely.
When the shift lever is returned to a position
other than R (Reverse) , it may take some
time until the screen changes. Objects on
the screen may be distorted until they are
● When the temperature is extremely high or
low, the screen may not clearly display ob-
jects. This is not a malfunction.
● When strong light directly enters the cam-
era, objects may not be displayed clearly.
This is not a malfunction.
● Vertical lines may be seen in objects on the
screen. This is due to strong reflected light
from the bumper. This is not a malfunction.
● The screen may flicker under fluorescent
light. This is not a malfunction.
● The colors of objects on the RearView Moni-
tor may differ somewhat from those of the
● Objects on the monitor may not be clear in a
dark place or at night. This is not a malfunc-
If dirt, rain or snow attaches to the camera,
the RearView Monitor may not display ob-
jects. Clean the camera.
● Do not use alcohol, benzine or thinner to
clean the camera. This will cause discolor-
ation. To clean the camera, wipe with a cloth
dampened with diluted mild cleaning agent
and then wipe with a dry cloth.
● Do not damage the camera as the monitor
screen may be adversely affected.
● Do not use wax on the camera window.
Wipe off the wax with a clean cloth damp-
ened with mild detergent diluted with water.
MOVING OBJECT DETECTION
(MOD) (if so equipped)
The Moving Object Detection (MOD) system can
inform the driver of moving objects behind the
vehicle when backing out of garages, maneuver-
ing in parking lots and in other such instances.
The MOD system detects moving objects by
using image processing technology on the image
shown in the display.
When the shift lever is in the R (Reverse) position
and the vehicle speed is approximately 5 MPH
(8 km/h) or less, the MOD system detects moving
objects in the rearview or rear-wide view. The
MOD system will not operate if the trunk is open.
●The MOD system is not a substitute for
proper vehicle operation and does not
prevent contact with the objects sur-
rounding the vehicle. When maneuver-
ing, always use the outside mirror and
rear view mirror and turn and look to
check the surroundings to make sure it
is safe to maneuver.
● The MOD system is not designed to
detect surrounding stationary objects.
If the MOD system detects moving objects be-
hind the vehicle, a yellow frame will be displayed
on the camera image and a chime sounds.

ing a trailer. The system may not func-
● Excessive noise (for example, audio
system volume or open vehicle window)
will interfere with the chime sound, and
it may not be heard.
● The MOD system performance will be
limited according to environmental con-
ditions and surrounding objects such
– When there is low contrast between background and the moving objects. – When there is blinking source of
– When strong light such as another vehicle’s headlight or sunlight is
– When there is dirt, water drops or snow on the camera lens.
– When the position of the moving ob- jects in the display is not changed.
● The MOD system might detect some-
thing like flowing water droplets on the
camera lens, white smoke from the
muffler, moving shadows, etc.
● The MOD system may not function
properly depending on the speed, direc-
tion, distance or shape of the moving
● If your vehicle sustains damage to the
parts where the camera is installed,
leaving it misaligned or bent, the sens-
ing zone may be altered and the MOD
system may not detect objects properly.
When the yellow MOD icon is displayed in the
view, the system is not functioning properly. This
will not hinder normal driving operation but the
system should be inspected by a NISSAN dealer.MOD icon

would normally require the assistance
of others alone in your vehicle. Pets
should also not be left alone. They
could accidentally injure themselves or
others through inadvertent operation of
the vehicle. Also, on hot, sunny days,
temperatures in a closed vehicle could
quickly become high enough to cause
severe or possibly fatal injuries to
people or animals.
