Traffic Sign Recognition System (TSR)*
Traffic Sign Recognition System (TSR)
The TSR helps prevent the driver from overlooking traffic signs, and provides support
for safer driving by displaying traffic signs on the active driving display/instrument
cluster which are recognized by the Forward Sensing Camera (FSC) or recorded in
the navigation system while the vehicle is driven.
The TSR displays the speed limit (including auxiliary signs), do not enter, and traffic
stop signs.
If the vehicle speed exceeds the speed limit sign indicated in the active driving
display/instrument cluster while the vehicle is driven, the system notifies the driver
using the indication in the active driving display/instrument cluster and a warning
sound.

WARNING
Always check the traffic signs visually while driving:
The TSR helps prevent the driver from overlooking traffic signs and provides support
for safer driving. Depending on the weather conditions or problems with traffic
signs, a traffic sign may not be recognized or a traffic sign different from the actual
traffic sign may be displayed. Always make it your responsibility as a driver to check
the actual traffic signs. Otherwise, it could result in an accident.
NOTE
The TSR is not supported in some countries or regions. For information concerning
the supported countries or regions, consult an Authorized Mazda Dealer.
The TSR operates only if the navigation system SD card (Mazda genuine) is
inserted in the SD card slot. Consult an Authorized Mazda Dealer for details.
The TSR does not operate if there is a malfunction in the Forward Sensing Camera
(FSC).
Under the following conditions, the TSR may not operate normally.
