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.
Reverse your vehicle slowly. Failure to follow this instruction could result in the loss of control of your vehicle, personal injury or death.
Use caution when the rear cargo door is ajar. If the rear cargo door is ajar, the camera will be out of position and the video image could be incorrect. All guide lines disappear when the rear cargo door is ajar. Failure to follow this instruction could result in personal injury.
Use caution when turning camera features on or off when the transmission is not in park (P). Make sure your vehicle is not moving.
The rear view camera system provides a video image of the area behind your vehicle.
During operation, lines appear in the display which represent your vehicle’s path and proximity to objects behind your vehicle.
The rear view camera is on the liftgate near the license plate.
Using the Rear View Camera System
The rear view camera system displays what is behind your vehicle when you place the transmission in reverse (R).
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 while reversing.
- 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 image comes on while the transmission is not in reverse (R), have the system inspected by your authorized dealer.
When towing, the camera only sees what you are towing behind your vehicle. This might not provide adequate coverage as it usually provides in normal operation and you might not see some objects. In some vehicles, the guidelines may disappear once you engage the trailer tow connector.
The camera may not operate correctly under the following conditions:
- Nighttime or dark areas if the reverse lamps are not operating.
- Mud, water or debris obstructs the camera's view.Clean the lens with a soft, lint-free cloth and non-abrasive cleaner.
- Any damage caused to the rear of your vehicle can misalign the position of the camera.
Camera System Settings
You can access the rear view camera system settings in the display screen. See
CFixed guideline: Green zone
DFixed guideline: Yellow zone
EFixed guideline: Red zone
Active guidelines only show with fixed guidelines. To use active guidelines, turn the steering wheel to point the guidelines toward an intended path. If the steering wheel position changes while reversing, your 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 do not show 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 your vehicle.
Active guidelines and fixed guidelines are only available when the transmission is in reverse (R).
The centerline is only available if active or fixed guidelines are on.
Obstacle Distance Indicator (If Equipped)
The system provides an image of your vehicle and the sensor zones. The zones highlight green, yellow and red when the parking aid sensors detect an object in the coverage area.
When manual zoom is on, the full area behind your vehicle may not show. Be aware of your surroundings when using the manual zoom feature.|
Selectable settings for this feature are Zoom in (+) and Zoom out (-). Press the symbol on the camera screen to change the view. The default setting is Zoom OFF.
This allows you to get a closer view of an object behind your vehicle. The zoomed image keeps the bumper in the image to provide a reference.The zoom is only active while the transmission is in reverse (R).
Manual zoom is only available when the transmission is in reverse (R).
Only the centerline shows when you enable manual zoom.
Rear Camera Delay
Selectable settings for this feature are ON and OFF. The default setting for the rear camera delay is OFF.
When shifting the transmission out of reverse (R) and into any gear other than park (P), the camera image remains in the display until your vehicle speed reaches
10 km/h. This occurs when the rear camera delay feature is on.
