Monitor, climate, audio, phone and voice recognition systems4-9
Page 193 of 434
When the shift lever is shifted into the R (Re-
verse) position, the monitor display shows a rear-
ward view from the vehicle.
●The system is designed as an aid to the
driver in detecting large stationary ob-
jects to help avoid damaging the ve-
hicle. The system will not detect small
objects below the bumper, and may not
detect objects close to the bumper or
on the ground.
● The RearView Monitor is a convenience
but it is not a substitute for proper back-
ing. Always turn and check that it is safe
to do so before backing up. Always
back up slowly.
● Objects viewed in the RearView Moni-
tor differ from actual distance because
a wide-angle lens is used.
● Do not put anything on the rearview
camera. The rearview camera is in-
stalled beside the license plate light. ●
When washing the vehicle with high-
pressure water, be sure not to spray it
around the camera. Otherwise, water
may enter the camera unit causing wa-
ter condensation on the lens, a mal-
function, fire or an electric shock.
● Do not strike the camera. It is a preci-
sion instrument. Otherwise, it may mal-
function or cause damage resulting in a
fire or an electric shock.
There is a plastic cover over the camera.
Do not scratch the cover when cleaning
dirt or snow from the cover.
HOW TO READ THE DISPLAYED

and distances to objects with reference to the
vehicle body line
Aare displayed on the monitor.

PREDICTED AND ACTUAL
The distance guide line and the vehicle width
guide line should be used as a reference only
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.
Backing up on a steep uphill
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 (1.0 m) to the
A, but the actual 3 ft (1.0 m) distance on

the hill is further than it appears on the monitor.
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 3 ft (1.0 m) to the
A, but the actual 3 ft (1.0 m) distance on the hill is the place
B. Note that any object on
the hill is closer than it appears on the monitor.

from the bumper. This is not a malfunction.

Do not leave children or adults who would
normally require the assistance of others
alone in your vehicle. Pets should also not
be left alone. They could accidentally in-
jure themselves or others through inad-
vertent 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.
