Rear Vision Camera (RVC)

The vehicle may have a Rear Vision Camera (RVC) system. Read this entire section before using it.

The RVC can assist the driver when backing up by displaying a view of the area behind the vehicle.

WARNING

The RVC system does not display pedestrians, bicyclists, animals, or any other object located outside the camera's field of view, below the bumper, or under the vehicle.

Do not back the vehicle using only the RVC screen or by using the screen during longer, higher speed backing maneuvers, or where there could be cross-traffic. Perceived distances may be different from actual distances.

Failure to use proper care before backing may result in injury, death, or vehicle damage. Always check before backing by checking behind and around the vehicle.

An image appears on the radio screen with the message Check Surroundings for Safety when the vehicle is shifted into R (Reverse). The radio screen goes to the previous screen after approximately 10 seconds once the vehicle is shifted out of R (Reverse).

To cancel the delay, do one of the following:

○ Press a hard key on the navigation system.
○ Shift into P (Park).
○ Reach a vehicle speed of 8 km/h (5 mph).
