Do not apply a strong force to an ultrasonic sensor (rear):
When washing the vehicle, do not spray highly pressurized water against an ultrasonic sensor
(rear), or rub it strongly. In addition, do not hit the rear bumper forcefully when loading and
unloading cargo Otherwise, the sensors may not detect obstructions correctly which could
cause the SCBS R system to not operate normally, or it could operate unnecessarily.
CAUTION
¾ When driving off-road in areas where there is grass or foliage, it is recommended that the
SCBS R system be turned off.
¾ Always use tires of the specified size and the same manufacturer, brand, and tread pattern
on all 4 wheels. In addition, do not use tires with significantly different wear patterns on the
same vehicle. Otherwise, the SCBS R system may not operate normally.
¾ If ice or snow is stuck on the ultrasonic sensors (rear) they may not be able to detect
obstructions correctly depending on the conditions. In such cases, the system may not be
able to perform controls correctly. Always drive carefully and pay attention to the rear of
the vehicle.
NOTE
The vehicle posture changes depending on the accelerator pedal, brake pedal and
steering wheel operations, which could make it difficult for the system to recognize an
obstruction, or it could facilitate unnecessary detection. In such cases, the SCBS R may or
may not operate.
The SCBS R system will operate under the following conditions.
The engine is running.
The selector lever is in the R (reverse) position.

360° View Monitor (Mazda Connect (Type A))*
The 360° View Monitor consists of the following functions which assist the driver in
checking the area surrounding the vehicle using various indications in the center display and
a warning sound while the vehicle is being driven at low speeds or while parking.
Top view
The top view displays an image of the vehicle from directly above on the center display
by combining the images taken from the 4 cameras set on all sides of the vehicle. The top
view displays on the right side of the screen when the front view or rear view screen is
being displayed. The top view assists the driver in checking the area surrounding the
vehicle when the vehicle is moving forward or in reverse.
Front view/front wide view
The image from the front of the vehicle is displayed on the center display.
The view from the front assists the driver in checking the front of the vehicle by
displaying guide lines on the displayed image taken from the front of the vehicle.
Side view
The images taken from the front left and right sides of the vehicle are displayed on the
center display.
The side view assists the driver in checking the front sides of the vehicle by displaying
guide lines on the displayed image taken from the front left and right sides of the vehicle.
Rear view/rear wide view
The image from the rear of the vehicle is displayed on the center display.
The image from the rear assists the driver in checking the rear of the vehicle by displaying
guide lines on the displayed image taken from the rear of the vehicle.
Parking sensor
If there are any obstructions near the vehicle while the top view/side view is displayed, an
obstruction detection indication on the center display turns on.
The parking sensors use ultrasonic sensors to detect obstructions around the vehicle when
the vehicle is driven at low speeds, such as during garage or parallel parking, and notifies
the driver of the approximate distance from the vehicle to the surrounding obstruction
using sound and an obstruction detection indication.
Refer to Parking Sensor System on page 4-260.
Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA)
If there is the possibility of a collision with an approaching vehicle while the rear view/
rear wide view is displayed, a warning is displayed on the center display.
The Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) uses radar sensors (rear) to detect vehicles
approaching from the rear left and right sides of the vehicle, and it assists the driver in
checking the rear of the vehicle while reversing by flashing the Blind Spot Monitoring
(BSM) warning lights and activating the warning sound.
Refer to Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) on page 4-127.

: Radar sensors (rear)
WARNING
Always confirm the safety of the area around the vehicle with the mirrors and directly with
your eyes when driving.
The 360°View Monitor is an auxiliary device which assists the driver in checking the safety of
the area around the vehicle.
The shooting range of the cameras and detection range of the sensors are limited. For
example, 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 where an obstruction may not be visible. In
addition, the extended vehicle width lines and projected vehicle path lines are only to be used
as references, and the images on the screen may differ from the actual conditions.
CAUTION
¾ Do not use the 360°View Monitor under any of the following conditions.
¾ Icy or snow-covered roads.
¾ Tire chains or a temporary spare tire is installed.
4-170
When Driving
i-ACTIVSENSE
¾ The front doors or the liftgate is not fully closed.
¾ The vehicle is on a road incline.
¾ The door mirrors are retracted.
¾ Do not hit the front/rear camera, front bumper, and door mirrors forcefully. The camera
position or installation angle may shift.
¾ The cameras are of a waterproof structure. Do not disassemble, modify, or remove a
camera.
¾ The camera cover is made of hard plastic, therefore do not apply oil film remover, organic
solvents, wax, or coating agents. If any such agent gets on the camera cover, wipe it off
using a soft cloth immediately.
¾ Do not rub the camera lens forcefully, or clean it with an abrasive or hard brush. Otherwise,
it could scratch the camera lens and negatively affect the images.
¾ Consult an Authorized Mazda Dealer for repair, painting, or replacement of the front/rear
camera, front bumper and door mirrors.
¾ Heed the following cautions to assure that the 360°View Monitor operates normally.
¾ Do not modify the vehicle suspensions or lower/raise the vehicle body, or both.
¾ Always use wheels of the specified type and size for the front and rear wheels. Consult an
Authorized Mazda Dealer for tire replacement.
¾ When the display is cold, images may leave trails or the screen might be darker than usual,
making it difficult to check the vehicle surroundings. Always confirm the safety at the front
and around the vehicle visually when driving.
¾ The method for parking/stopping the vehicle using the 360°View Monitor differs depending
on the road circumstances/conditions and the vehicle conditions. When and how much you
turn the steering wheel will differ depending on the situation, therefore always check the
vehicle surroundings directly with your eyes while using the system.
Also, before using the system, always make sure that the vehicle can be parked/stopped in
the parking/stopping space.
NOTE
If there are water droplets, snow, or mud on the camera lens, wipe it off using a soft cloth.
If the camera lens is especially dirty, wash it off with mild detergent.
If the area where the camera is installed, such as the liftgate or door mirrors, has been
damaged in a vehicle accident, the camera (position, installation angle) may have shifted.
Always consult an Authorized Mazda Dealer to have the vehicle inspected.
If the camera is subjected to excessive changes in temperature such as by pouring hot
water on the camera during cold weather, the 360°View Monitor may not operate
normally.
If the battery voltage is low, the screen might be temporarily difficult to view, however,
this does not indicate a problem.
4-171
When Driving
i-ACTIVSENSE
The 360°View Monitor has limitations. Objects under the bumper or near both ends of the
bumper cannot be displayed.
Obstructions above the upper image range of the camera are not displayed.
Under the following conditions, the screen might be difficult to view, however this does
not indicate a problem.
The temperature near the lens is high/low.
Rainy conditions, water droplets on the camera, or high humidity.
Mud or foreign matter near the camera.
Extremely bright light such as sunlight or headlights hitting the camera lens directly.
Because the 360°View Monitor camera uses a special lens, the distance displayed on the
screen differs from the actual distance.
Obstructions displayed on the screen may appear differently than in actuality.
(Obstructions may appear fallen, larger, or longer than they actually are.)
Do not apply stickers to a camera or the area around it. In addition, do not install
accessories or an illuminated number/character license plate to the area around a
camera. Otherwise, the camera may not correctly display the surrounding conditions.

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 4-260.
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.)

Refer to Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) on page 4-127.
NOTE
The parking sensor obstruction detection indication does not display. Switch the screen
display to the top view/rear view display if the parking sensor warning sound is activated.
The 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.

360° View Monitor (Mazda Connect (Type B))*
360° View Monitor
The 360°View Monitor consists of the following functions which assist the driver in
checking the area surrounding the vehicle using various indications in the center display and
a warning sound while the vehicle is being driven at low speeds or while parking.
Top view
The top view displays an image of the vehicle from directly above on the center display
by combining the images taken from the 4 cameras set on all sides of the vehicle. The top
view displays on the right side of the screen when the front view or rear view screen is
being displayed. The top view assists the driver in checking the area surrounding the
vehicle when the vehicle is moving forward or in reverse.
Front view/front wide view
The image from the front of the vehicle is displayed on the center display.
The view from the front assists the driver in checking the front of the vehicle by
displaying guide lines on the displayed image taken from the front of the vehicle.
Side view
The images taken from the front left and right sides of the vehicle are displayed on the
center display.
The side view assists the driver in checking the front sides of the vehicle by displaying
guide lines on the displayed image taken from the front left and right sides of the vehicle.
Rear view/rear wide view
The image from the rear of the vehicle is displayed on the center display.
The image from the rear assists the driver in checking the rear of the vehicle by displaying
guide lines on the displayed image taken from the rear of the vehicle.
Parking sensor
If there are any obstructions near the vehicle while the top view/side view is displayed, an
obstruction detection indication turns on around the bumper in the center display.
The parking sensors use ultrasonic sensors to detect obstructions around the vehicle when
the vehicle is driven at low speeds, such as during garage or parallel parking, and notifies
the driver of the approximate distance from the vehicle to the surrounding obstruction
using sound and an obstruction detection indication.
Refer to Parking Sensor System on page 4-270.
Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA)
If there is the possibility of a collision with an approaching vehicle while the rear view/
rear wide view is displayed, a warning is displayed on the center display.
The Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) uses rear side radar sensor to detect vehicles
approaching from the rear left and right sides of the vehicle, and it assists the driver in
checking the rear of the vehicle while reversing by flashing the Blind Spot Monitoring
(BSM) warning lights and activating the warning sound.
*Some models.
