(Screen display)

(Actual condition)

i-ACTIVSENSE

NOTE

  • In the top view screen, the areas in black at the front and rear of the vehicle image and the seams where each of the camera images merge are blind spots.
  • Because images displayed in the top view screen are processed from each camera, the top view screen may display in the following ways.
  • If an image containing an object with a conspicuous color is picked up by any of the cameras, the whole screen may be affected and it may display in that color.
  • Obstructions displayed in the rear view may not display on the top view screen.
  • If the position or angle of each camera changes due to tilting of the vehicle, the image may appear distorted.
  • Lines on the road may appear distorted at the seams where each of the camera images merge.
  • The entire screen may appear bright/dark depending on the illumination level around any of the cameras.

  Display/Icon Content
1 Parking sensor view Displays the parking sensor detection condition when the parking sensor is activated.

For details, refer to the parking sensor obstruction detection indication and warning sound.

2 Tire icon Indicates the tire direction. Moves in conjunction with the steering wheel operation.
3 Projected vehicle path lines (amber) Indicates the approximate projected path of the vehicle.

Moves in conjunction with the steering wheel operation.

a) Indicates the path where the rear wheels are expected to travel.

b) Indicates the path where the outer side of the vehicle is expected to travel

4 Extended vehicle width lines and distance guide lines (red/blue) These guide lines indicate the approximate width of the vehicle and distance to a point measured from the rear of the vehicle (from the end of the bumper).
  • The red lines indicate the points up to about 0.5 m (20 in) from the rear end of the bumper.
  • The blue lines indicate the points from about 0.5 m (20 in) and up to 2 m (79 in) from the rear end of the bumper.
5 Projected vehicle path distance guide lines (red/amber) These guide lines indicate the approximate distance to a point measured from the rear of the vehicle (from the end of the bumper).
  • The red line indicates the point about 0.5 m (20 in) from the rear end of the bumper.
  • The amber lines indicate the points about 1 m (39 in) and 2 m (79 in) from the rear end of the bumper.
6 Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) warning lights Indicates when the Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) has operated.

For details, refer to Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA).

NOTE The setting can be changed so that the projected vehicle path lines are not displayed.

How to use the projected vehicle path line function

CAUTION

  • The front of the vehicle swings out wide when turning the steering wheel while reversing.

    Maintain sufficient distance between the vehicle and an obstruction.

  • The parking sensor detection range has limitations. For example, obstructions closing in from the side and objects short in height may not be detected. Always confirm the safety around the vehicle visually when driving.

    For details, refer to the parking sensor obstruction detection indication and warning sound.

NOTE

  • Because there might be a difference between the image displayed on the screen, such as indicated in the following, and the actual conditions when parking, always check the safety at the rear of the vehicle and the surrounding area directly with your eyes.
    • Even though the back end of the parking space (or garage) displayed on the screen and distance guide lines appear parallel, they may not actually be parallel.
    • When parking in a space with a division line on only one side of the parking space, even though the division line and the vehicle width guide line appear parallel, they may not actually be parallel.
  • The following shows an example of vehicle parking with the steering wheel turned to the left while backing up the vehicle. When backing into a parking space from the opposite direction, the steering operation is reversed.

1. Back the vehicle into the parking space by turning the steering wheel so that the vehicle enters the center of the parking space.

(Actual condition)

2. After the vehicle starts entering the parking space, stop and adjust the steering wheel so that the distance between the vehicle width lines and the sides of the parking space on the left and right are roughly equal, and then continue backing up slowly.

3. Once the vehicle width lines and the sides of the parking space on the left and right are parallel, straighten the wheels and back the vehicle slowly into the parking space.

Continue checking the vehicle's surroundings and then stop the vehicle in the best possible position. (If the parking space has division lines, check whether the vehicle width guide lines are parallel to them.)
