Viewing the Display

Predicted vehicle path assist lines display type

The projected path guidance mode displays the predicted path of the vehicle after
you turn the steering wheel.
Use this mode for parking your vehicle in a parking space or garage.

a) Projected vehicle path (yellow)

These lines are displayed as a reference for the projected path of the vehicle.
The lines displaying the projected vehicle path change after you turn the steering
wheel.

b) Extended vehicle width lines (blue)

These lines indicate the vehicle's extended width.

When Driving

Rear View Monitor

4-236

These lines are not displayed when the vehicle's wheels are in the straight-ahead
position.

c) Distance guide lines (red)

These lines indicate the approximate distance to a point measured from the
vehicle's rear (from the end of the bumper).
The blue line indicates the point about 0.5 m (19 in) from the rear bumper.
The red and yellow lines, which change position after you turn the steering wheel,
indicate the points about 0.5 m (19 in) for the red line and 1.0 m (39 in) and 2.0
m (78 in) for the yellow lines from the rear bumper (at the center point of each of
the lines).
A degree of error occurs when the wheels are not in the straight-ahead position.
In the above illustration, the right side of the vehicle is in a position closer to the
actual distance displayed by the distance guide lines (red: about 0.5 m (19 in)
point, yellow: about 1.0 m (39 in), and yellow: about 2.0 m (78 in) point behind
the rear bumper), whereas the left side is in a position farther away.

CAUTION

The indicated position of the guide lines on the display changes depending on the
vehicle conditions (such as the number of occupants/cargo load) and the road
conditions (such as a steep gradient to the rear of the vehicle).
Always check the area to the vehicle's rear and the surrounding area directly with
your eyes while backing up.

Fixed assist lines display type

Guide lines which indicate the width of the vehicle are displayed on the screen as a
reference to the approximate width of the vehicle in comparison to the width of the
parking space you are about to back into.
Use this display view for parking your vehicle in a parking space or garage.

a) Vehicle width guide lines

Guide lines serve as a reference to the approximate width of the vehicle.

b) Distance guide lines

These guide lines indicate the approximate distance to a point measured from the
vehicle's rear (from the end of the bumper).
The red line indicates the point about 0.5 m (19 in) from the rear bumper.

When Driving

Rear View Monitor

4-237

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

CAUTION

The guide lines on the screen are fixed lines. They are not synced to the driver's
turning of the steering wheel. Always be careful and check the area to the vehicle's
rear and the surrounding area directly with your eyes while backing up.

Rear View Monitor Operation

The operation of the rear view monitor when reversing the vehicle varies depending
on the traffic, road, and vehicle conditions. The amount of steering and the timing
also varies depending on conditions, so confirm the surrounding conditions directly
with your eyes and steer the vehicle in accordance with the conditions.
Be well aware of the above cautions prior to using the rear view monitor.

Predicted vehicle path assist lines display type

NOTE

The following shows an example of vehicle parking in which the steering wheel is
