The rear view camera system is a reverse aid supplement device that still requires the driver to use it in conjunction with the interior and exterior mirrors for maximum coverage.|
Objects that are close to either corner of the bumper or under the bumper, might not be seen on the screen due to the limited coverage of the camera system.
Back up as slow as possible since higher speeds might limit your reaction time to stop the vehicle.
Use caution when using the rear video camera and the liftgate is ajar. If the liftgate is ajar, the camera will be out of position and the video image may be incorrect. All guidelines (if enabled) have been removed when the liftgate is ajar.
Use caution when turning camera features on or off while in R (Reverse). Make sure the vehicle is not moving.
The rear view camera system provides a video image of the area behind the vehicle.
During operation, lines appear in the display which represent your vehicle’s path and proximity to objects behind the vehicle.
The camera is located on the liftgate.
Using the Rear View Camera System
The rear view camera system displays what is behind your vehicle when you place the transmission in R (Reverse).
The system uses three types of guides to help you see what is behind your vehicle:
- Active guidelines: Show the intended path of your vehicle when reversing. This feature is only available on vehicles with active park assist.
- Fixed guidelines: Show the actual path your vehicle is moving in while reversing in a straight line. This can be helpful when backing into a parking space or aligning your vehicle with another object behind you.
- Centerline: Helps align the center of your vehicle with an object (for example, a trailer).
If the transmission is in R (Reverse) and the luggage compartment is ajar, no rear view camera features are displayed.
If the image comes on while the transmission is not in R (Reverse), have the system inspected by your authorized dealer.
When towing, the camera only sees what is being towed behind your vehicle. This might not provide adequate coverage as it usually provides in normal operation and some objects might not be seen. In some vehicles, the guidelines may disappear once the trailer tow connector is engaged.
The camera may not operate correctly under the following conditions:
- Nighttime or dark areas if one or both reverse lamps are not operating.
- The camera's view is obstructed by mud, water or debris. Clean the lens with a soft, lint-free cloth and non-abrasive cleaner.
- The rear of the vehicle is hit or damaged, causing the camera to become misaligned.
To access any of the rear view camera system settings, make the following selections in the touch screen when the transmission is not in R (Reverse):
- Menu > Vehicle > Rear View Camera
After changing a system setting, the touch screen shows a preview of the selected features.
Guidelines and the Centerline
Active guidelines and fixed guidelines are only available when the transmission is in R (Reverse).
The centerline is only available if Active or Fixed guidelines are on.
CFixed guideline: Green zone
DFixed guideline: Yellow zone
EFixed guideline: Red zone
Active guidelines are only shown with fixed guidelines. To use active guidelines, turn the steering wheel to point the guidelines toward an intended path. If the steering wheel position is changed while reversing, the vehicle might deviate from the original intended path.
The fixed and active guidelines fade in and out depending on the steering wheel position. The active guidelines are not shown when the steering wheel position is straight.
Always use caution while reversing. Objects in the red zone are closest to your vehicle and objects in the green zone are farther away. Objects are getting closer to your vehicle as they move from the green zone to the yellow or red zones. Use the side view mirrors and rear view mirror to get better coverage on both sides and rear of the vehicle.
Selectable settings for this feature are ACTIVE + FIXED, FIXED and OFF.
Visual Park Aid Alert
Visual park alert is only available when the transmission is in R (Reverse).
The reverse sensing system is not effective at speeds above 3 mph (5 km/h) and may not detect certain angular or moving objects.
The system uses red, yellow and green highlights which appear on top of the video image when an object is detected by the reverse sensing system. The alert highlights the closest object detected. The reverse sensing alert can be disabled and if visual park aid alert is enabled, highlighted areas are still displayed.
Selectable settings for this feature are ON and OFF.
When manual zoom is on, the full area behind the vehicle is not shown. Be aware of your surroundings when using the manual zoom feature.|
Manual zoom is only available when the transmission is in R (Reverse).
When manual zoom is enabled, only the centerline is shown.
This allows you to get a closer view of an object behind the vehicle. The zoomed image keeps the bumper in the image to provide a reference. The zoom is only active while the transmission is in R (Reverse). When the transmission is shifted out of R (Reverse), the feature automatically turns off and must be reset when it is used again.
Selectable settings for this feature are OFF, Level 1, Level 2 or Level 3. Press the up and down arrows to change the view. The selection level appears between the buttons (for example, Level 1). The default setting for the manual zoom is OFF.
Rear Camera Delay
When shifting the transmission out of R (Reverse) and into any gear other than P (Park), the camera image remains in the display until the vehicle speed reaches 5 mph (8 km/h). This occurs when the rear camera delay feature is on, or until a radio button is selected.
Selectable settings for this feature are ON and OFF. The default setting for the rear camera delay is OFF.
