Tire icon

Indicates the tire direction. Moves in conjunction with
the steering wheel operation.

(2)

Projected vehicle path lines (yellow
& red)

Indicates the approximate projected path of the vehicle.
Moves in conjunction with the steering wheel operation.
a) Indicates the path where the edge of the rear bumper
is expected to travel.
b) Indicates the path where the outer side of the vehicle
is expected to travel.

(3)

Extended vehicle width lines (blue) These guide lines indicate the approximate width of the

vehicle.

(4)

Projected vehicle path distance
guide lines (yellow & red)

These guide lines indicate the approximate distance to a
point measured from the rear of the vehicle (from the
end of the bumper).

x

The red line indicates the point about 0.5 m (19 in)
from the rear end of the bumper.

x

The yellow lines indicate the points about 1.0 m (39
in) and 2.0 m (78 in) from the rear end of the bumper.

NOTE

The setting can be changed so that the projected vehicle path lines are not
displayed.
Refer to the Settings section in the Mazda Connect Owner's Manual.

How to use the projected vehicle path line function

CAUTION

¾

The front of the vehicle swings out wide when turning the steering wheel while
reversing. Maintain sufficient distance between the vehicle and an obstruction.

¾

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.
Refer to Parking Sensor System on page 4-248.

NOTE

x

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.

x

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.

x

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.

x

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.

When Driving

i-ACTIVSENSE

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

vehicle enters the center of the parking space.

1. (Screen display)
2. (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.

When Driving

i-ACTIVSENSE

4-202

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.)

Top View/Rear Wide View

Use the top view/rear wide view to assist in checking the safety of the surrounding
area when accelerating from a stop, parking, or stopping the vehicle.

NOTE

x

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.

x

Because images displayed in the top view screen are processed from each camera,
the top view screen may display in the following ways.

x

Depending on the surrounding environment, the color of objects may be
displayed on the screen in a color different from the actual one.

x

Depending on the surrounding environment, it may take a few seconds for the
color of the screen display to adjust.

x

Obstructions displayed in the front view may not display on the top view screen.

x

If the position or angle of each camera changes due to tilting of the vehicle, the
image may appear distorted.

x

Lines on the road may appear distorted at the seams where each of the camera
images merge.

x

The screen area for each camera may appear bright/dark depending on the
illumination level around any of the cameras.

Extended vehicle width lines and
distance guide lines (blue & red)

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).

x

The red lines indicate the points up to about 0.5 m
(19 in) from the rear end of the bumper.

NOTE

The top view/rear wide view screen displays the image at the rear of the vehicle at a
wide angle and corrects the image to help detect approaching obstructions from the
side. Therefore, it differs from the actual view.

Margin of Error Between Road Surface on Screen and Actual Road Surface

There might be some margin of error between the road surface appearing on the
screen and the actual road surface. A margin of error in the perceived distance could
lead to an accident, therefore be aware of the following conditions which can more
easily produce errors in the perceived distance.

The vehicle tilts due to weight of passengers and cargo.

If the vehicle is tilted, obstructions picked up by a camera can appear farther or
closer than the actual distance from the vehicle.

1. Forward Sensing Camera (FSC)

The Forward Sensing Camera (FSC)
determines the conditions ahead of
the vehicle while traveling at night and
detects traffic lanes. The distance in
which the Forward Sensing Camera
(FSC) can detect objects varies
depending on the surrounding
conditions.

WARNING

Do not modify the suspension:

If the vehicle height or inclination is
changed, the system will not be able to
correctly detect vehicles ahead. This
will result in the system not operating
normally or mistakenly operating,
which could cause a serious accident.

CAUTION

¾

Do not apply accessories, stickers or
film to the windshield near the
Forward Sensing Camera (FSC).
If the area in front of the Forward
Sensing Camera (FSC) lens is
obstructed, it will cause the system
to not operate correctly.
Consequently, each system may not
operate normally which could lead
to an unexpected accident.

¾

Do not disassemble or modify the
Forward Sensing Camera (FSC).
Disassembly or modification of the
Forward Sensing Camera (FSC) will
cause a malfunction or mistaken
operation. Consequently, each
system may not operate normally
which could lead to an unexpected
accident.

¾

Heed the following cautions to
assure the correct operation of the
Forward Sensing Camera (FSC).

¾

Be careful not to scratch the
Forward Sensing Camera (FSC)
lens or allow it to get dirty.

When Driving

Consult an Authorized Mazda
Dealer regarding cleaning the
interior side of the windshield
around the Forward Sensing
Camera (FSC).

The Forward Sensing Camera (FSC)
is installed to the windshield.
Consult an Authorized Mazda
Dealer for windshield repair and
replacement.

¾

When cleaning the windshield, do
not allow glass cleaners or similar
cleaning fluids to get on the
Forward Sensing Camera (FSC)

The direction in which the Forward
Sensing Camera (FSC) is pointed
has been finely adjusted. Do not
change the installation position of
the Forward Sensing Camera (FSC)
or remove it. Otherwise, it could
result in damage or malfunction.

¾

Always use tires for all wheels that
are of the specified size, and the
same manufacturer, brand, and tread
pattern. In addition, do not use tires
with significantly different wear
patterns on the same vehicle as the
system may not operate normally.

¾

The Forward Sensing Camera (FSC)
includes a function for detecting a
soiled windshield and informing the
driver, however, depending on the
conditions, it may not detect plastic
shopping bags, ice or snow on the
windshield. In such cases, the system
cannot accurately determine a
vehicle ahead and may not be able
to operate normally. Always drive
carefully and pay attention to the
road ahead.
