It remains the driver's responsibility to detect obstacles and estimate the vehicle's distance from them when reversing.


Some overhanging objects or barriers which could cause damage to the vehicle, may not be detected by the camera.


The camera must be kept clean and free from debris or obstructions, for example, stickers, debris, leaves, mud, snow, ice, frost, or insects. Failure to keep the camera clean may result in miscalculation or false indications.

The rear camera, located above the rear licence plate position, provides a rear-view image to assist in reversing the vehicle.

When Reverse (R) gear is selected, the touch screen automatically displays a wide-angle, color image from the rear of the vehicle. Overlaid on the image are reversing guide lines and an indication of which sensors are active.


Vehicles with a surround camera system can also split the screen's rear-view image, to also display a 360° view. See TOUCHSCREEN CONTROLS.


The rear camera display has priority over the parking aids display. To cancel the rear camera display at any time, press the Home menu button or touch the Back soft key.

  1. Dotted line: The safe working width of the vehicle (including the exterior mirrors).

  2. Solid line: The projected path, based on the current steering wheel position.

  3. Parking sensor activation: A colored area appears, to indicate which rear sensor(s) has been activated.

  4. Luggage area access guide line: Do not reverse beyond this point if access is required to the luggage area.


The quality of the camera views may vary in different lighting conditions.

To adjust the rear camera settings while in Reverse (R) gear, touch anywhere on the touch screen to display the user options.


The user options menu/icon selection differs for vehicles with a rear camera only system, or a surround camera system.

For vehicles fitted with only a rear camera, touch one of the user options, followed by the Back icon:

Touch to enable or disable the park assist guidance lines.

Touch to enable or disable the sensor/s active graphics.

Touch to enable or disable hitch assist guidance lines. Use this feature to aid the process of guiding the vehicle to a towing hitch. A single line is displayed as the reversing guidance line. See HITCH GUIDANCE.

For vehicles fitted with a surround camera system:

  1. Hitch Assist: Select OFF or ON. See HITCH GUIDANCE.

  2. Parking Guidance: Select OFF or ON.

  3. Parking Aid Graphics: Select OFF or ON.

  4. PDC Plan View: Select OFF or ON.

The rear camera display on the touch screen will discontinue when either of the following apply:

  • A forward gear is selected for longer than 5 seconds.

  • A forward gear is selected and/or the vehicle's speed is greater than 11 mph (18 km/h).
