Objects on uphill or downhill surfaces or project-
ing objects will be actually located at distances
different from those displayed in the monitor rela-
tive to the guidelines (refer to illustrations) . When
in doubt, turn around and view the objects as you
are backing up, or park and exit the vehicle to
view the positioning of objects behind the ve-

Listed below are the system limitations for
Around View® Monitor. Failure to operate
the vehicle in accordance with these sys-
tem limitations could result in serious in-
jury or death.
Do not use the Around View® Monitor
with the outside mirrors in the stored
position, and make sure that the trunk is
securely closed when operating the ve-
hicle using the Around View® Monitor.
● The apparent distance between objects
viewed on the Around View® Monitor
differs from the actual distance.
● The cameras are installed on the front
grille, the outside mirrors and above the
rear license plate. Do not put anything
on the vehicle that covers the cameras.
● When washing the vehicle with high
pressure water, be sure not to spray it
around the cameras. 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 cameras. They are
precision instruments. Doing so could
cause a malfunction or cause damage
resulting in a fire or an electric shock. There are some areas where the system will not
show objects and the system does not warn of
moving objects. When in the front or rear view
display, an object below the bumper or on the
ground may not be viewed

System temporarily unavailable
When the “!” icon is displayed on the screen,
there are abnormal conditions in the Around
View® Monitor. This will not hinder normal driving
operation but the system should be inspected by
a NISSAN dealer.When the “[X]” icon is displayed on the screen,
the camera image may be receiving temporary
electronic disturbances from surrounding de-
vices. This will not hinder normal driving opera-
tion but the system should be inspected by a
NISSAN dealer if it occurs frequently.
Do not use alcohol, benzine or thinner
to clean the camera. This will cause

The Camera Aiding Sonar (parking sensor)
sounds a tone to inform the driver of obstacles
near the bumper.
The colors of the sonar indicators and the dis-
tance guide lines in the rear view indicate differ-
ent distances to the object.
●The Camera Aiding Sonar (parking sen-
sor) is a convenience feature. It is not a
substitute for proper parking.
● The system is deactivated at speeds
above 6 mph (10 km/h). It is reactivated
at lower speeds. ●
The driver is always responsible for
safety during parking and other
● Always look around and check that it is
safe to move before parking.
● Read and understand the limitations of
the Camera Aiding Sonar (parking sen-
sor) as contained in this section.
● Inclement weather or ultrasonic
sources such as an automatic car wash,
a truck’s compressed-air brakes or a
pneumatic drill may affect the function
of the system; this may include reduced
performance or a false activation.
This function is designed as an aid to the
driver in detecting large stationary ob-
jects to help avoid damaging the vehicle.
● The system is not designed to prevent
contact with small or moving objects.
● The system will not detect small objects
below the bumper, and may not detect
objects close to the bumper or on the
● The system may not detect the follow-
– Fluffy objects such as snow, cloth, cotton, glass or wool. – Thin objects such as rope, wire or
– Wedge-shaped objects.
● If your vehicle sustains damage to the
bumper fascia, leaving it misaligned or
bent, the sensing zone may be altered
causing inaccurate measurement of ob-
jects or false alarms.
● Excessive noise (such as audio system
volume or an open vehicle window) will
interfere with the tone and it may not be
● Keep the surface of the sonar sensors
(located on the rear bumper fascia) free
from accumulations of snow, ice and
dirt. Do not scratch the surface of the
sonar sensors when cleaning. If the
sensors are covered, the accuracy of the
sonar function will be diminished.
The system gives the tone for rear objects when
the shift lever is in the R (Reverse) position.
The system is deactivated at speeds above
6 mph (10 km/h). It is reactivated at lower

When the objects are detected, the indicator
(green) appears and blinks and the tone sounds
intermittently. When the vehicle moves closer to
the object, the color of the indicator turns yellow
and the rate of the blinking and the rate of the
tone increase. When the vehicle is very close to
the object, the indicator stops blinking and turns
red, and the tone sounds continuously.
The intermittent tone will stop after 3 seconds
when an object is detected by only the corner
sonar and the distance does not change.
The tone will stop when the object is no longer
near the vehicle.
In the below cases, the sonar will be turned back
on automatically:● When the shift lever is in the R (Reverse)
● When vehicle speed decreases below ap-
proximately 6 mph (10 km/h).
● When the ignition switch is placed in the
OFF position and turned back to the ON
