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 rear view camera is a convenience
but it is not a substitute for proper back-
ing up. 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.
● Make sure that the trunk is securely
closed when backing up.
● Underneath the bumper and the corner
areas of the bumper cannot be viewed
on the RearView Monitor because of its
monitoring range limitation. ●
Do not put anything on the rear view
camera. The rear view camera is in-
stalled above the license plate.
● 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.
Do not scratch the camera lens when
cleaning dirt or snow from the lens.

HOW TO READ THE DISPLAYED
Guiding lines which indicate the vehicle width
and distances to objects with reference to the
vehicle body line
Aare displayed on the monitor.
Distance guide lines:
Indicate distances from the vehicle body. ● Red line
1: approx. 1.5 ft (0.5 m)
● Yellow line
2: approx. 3 ft (1 m)
● Green line
3: approx. 7 ft (2 m)
● Green line
4: approx. 10 ft (3 m) Vehicle width guide lines
Indicate the vehicle width when backing up.
Predicted course lines
Indicate the predicted course when backing up.
The predicted course lines will be displayed on
the monitor when the shift selector is in the R
(Reverse) position and the steering wheel is
turned. The predicted course lines will move de-
pending on how much the steering wheel is
turned and will not be displayed while the steer-
ing wheel is in the neutral position.
The vehicle width guide lines and the width of the
predicted course lines are wider than the actual
width and course.
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

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 the place
B. Note that any object on
the hill is further than it appears on the monitor.
