The Surround View Camera increases the level of safety when you’re parking, making every maneuvering procedure easier, smoother and, more importantly, less stressful.
The Surround View Camera assists you during parking maneuvers by combining all the information from the 4 cameras positioned around your vehicle to give you a 360-degree view of the area around your car, providing unparalleled visibility of your surroundings. The cameras are placed in four positions: one on the front grid, two under the side view mirrors and a rear camera on the tailgate, between the number plate lights.
In all situations where it’s hard to see and assess the distance between you and already parked cars, the system also provides dynamic gridlines to show your predicted trajectory. All the information gathered from the parking sensors will also help by alerting you to hidden obstacles.
When the gear lever is shifted to R (Reverse) position, the top view and rear view of the car’s immediate surroundings will be automatically displayed on the screen. When the gear lever is shifted to P (Park), N (Neutral) or D (Drive) position, you can activate and deactivate this safety system by pressing the “Surround Camera” soft-key in the “Controls” section of the display. Once the “Surround Camera” screen is displayed, you can select the images to display from 4 possible options: 1. Rear view and top view 2. Rear cross path view 3. Front cross path view 4. Front view and top view
With option 1 and 4, you will be able to simultaneously check two different views. You simply have to pick the most convenient view, considering the situation and the maneuver you are about to perform.
Keep in mind
You must always be careful and check your immediate surroundings cautiously before initiating any maneuver in order to spot other vehicles, obstacles, pedestrians or animals.
Once you have started the maneuver you must continue to pay attention to your surroundings.
You must always drive your vehicle slowly when you’re parking in order to be able to stop in time if an obstacle is detected.
The Surround View Camera system is designed to function properly during the day or under good lighting conditions. You must never rely on the system alone under poor lighting conditions.
The distance and trajectory lines must always be interpreted merely as a reference and only when the vehicle is on level ground.
The Surround View Camera is intended to be used only by licensed and alert users and under the conditions specified in a vehicle’s Owner’s Manual.
Read and understand a vehicle’s Owner’s Manual thoroughly before using the Surround View Camera.
It is your responsibility to stay alert, drive safely, and be in control of the vehicle at all times.
To avoid serious injury or death, do not rely on the Surround View Camera system to prevent accidents or collisions as it is not designed to prevent loss of control or all accidents or collisions.
Always be prepared to take corrective action at all times.
Failure to follow these instructions and warnings can result in serious injury or death.
