When using the rear view monitor system
The rear view monitor system is a supplemental device intended to assist the driver when backing up. When backing up, be sure to check visually behind and all around the vehicle before proceeding.
Observe the following precautions to avoid an accident that could result in death or serious injuries.
Never depend on the rear view monitor system entirely when backing up.
The image and the position of the guide lines displayed on the screen may differ from the actual state.
Use caution, just as you would when backing up any vehicle.
Be sure to back up slowly, depressing the brake pedal to control vehicle speed.
The instructions given are only guidelines.
When and how much to turn the steering wheel will vary according to traffic conditions, road surface conditions, vehicle condition, etc. When parking.
It is necessary to be fully aware of this before using the rear view monitor system.
When parking, be sure to check that the parking space will accommodate your vehicle before maneuvering into it.
Do not use the rear view monitor system in the following cases:
On icy or slick road surfaces, or in snow
When using tire chains or the compact spare tire
When the back door is not closed completely
On roads that are not flat or straight, such as curves or slopes.
In low temperatures, the screen may darken or the image may become faint. The image could distort when the vehicle is moving, or you may become unable to see the image on the screen. Be sure to check direct visually and with the mirrors all around the vehicle before proceeding.
If the tire sizes are changed, the position of the fixed guide lines displayed on the screen may change.
The camera uses a special lens. The distances between objects and pedestrians that appear in the image displayed on the screen will differ from the actual distances.
