DRIVING PRECAUTIONS
The rear view monitor system assists
 
the driver by displaying an image of the
 
view behind the vehicle with fixed
 
guide lines on the screen while backing
 
up, for example while parking.
INFORMATION
The screen illustrations used in this text 
are intended as examples, and may dif-
fer from the image that is actually dis-
played on the screen.
The rear view monitor system is a sup-
plemental device intended to assist the
 
driver when backing up. When backing
 
up, be sure to visually check all around
 
the vehicle both directly and using the
 
mirrors before proceeding. If you do
 
not, you may hit another vehicle, and
 
could possibly cause an accident.
Pay attention to the following precau-
tions when using the rear view monitor 
system.
WARNING
Never depend on the rear view monitor 
system entirely when backing up. The
 
image and the position of the guide lines
 
displayed on the screen may differ from
 
the actual state.
 
Use caution, just as you would when
 
backing up any vehicle.
Be sure to back up slowly, depressing
 
the brake pedal to control vehicle speed.
The instructions given are only guide-
lines. When and how much to turn the
 
steering wheel will vary according to
 
traffic conditions, road surface condi-
tions, vehicle condition, etc. when park-
ing. It is necessary to be fully aware of 
this before using the rear view monitor 
system.
When parking, be sure to check that the
 
parking space will accommodate your 
vehicle before maneuvering into it.
Do not use the rear view monitor system
 
in the following cases:
• On icy or slick road surfaces, or in
 
snow
• When using tire chains or emergency
 
tires
• When the back door is not closed com-
pletely
• On roads that are not flat or straight, 
such as curves or slopes.
In low temperatures, the screen may
 
darken or the image may become faint. 
The image could distort when the vehi-
cle is moving, or you may become
 
unable to see the image on the screen. 
Be sure to visually check all around the
 
vehicle both directly and using the mir-
rors before proceeding.
If the tire sizes are changed, the position
 
of the fixed guide lines displayed on the
 
screen may change.
The camera uses a special lens. The
 
distances between objects and pedestri-
ans that appear in the image displayed
 
on the screen will differ from the actual 
distances.(
