When the vehicle is reversing, the camera 1 on the luggage compartment lid transmits a view of the area surrounding the rear of the vehicle to the multimedia display 2 accompanied by two guiding lines 3 and 4 (fixed and mobile).
This system uses several guidelines for its operation (mobile for trajectory and fixed for distance). When the red zone is reached, use the bumper image to stop accurately.
Fixed clearance gauge 3
The fixed clearance gauge comprises coloured markers A, B and C indicating the distance behind the vehicle:
- A(red) approximately 30 centimetres from the vehicle;
- B(yellow) approximately 70 centimetres from the vehicle;
- C(green) approximately 150 centimetres from the vehicle.
This gauge remains fixed and indicates the vehicle trajectory if the wheels are in line with the vehicle.
4 moving guide line:
This is shown in blue on the multimedia screen 2. It indicates the vehicle trajectory according to the position of the steering wheel.
Make sure that the camera is not obscured (by dirt, mud, snow, condensation etc.).
While the engine is running, from the multimedia screen 2 you can add or remove the guides and adjust the camera image settings (brightness, contrast etc.). Please refer to the multimedia instructions for further information.
The screen shows a reverse mirror image.
The frames are a representation projected on a flat surface. This information is to not be taken into account when superimposed on a vertical object or an object on the ground.
Objects which appear on the edge of the screen may be deformed.
In very bright light (snow, vehicle in sunshine, etc.), the camera vision may be adversely affected.
If the boot is open or poorly closed, the message “WARNING: Boot Open” appears and the camera display disappears.
This function is an additional aid. It cannot, therefore, under any circumstances replace the vigilance or the responsibility of the driver.
The driver should always be ready for sudden incidents while driving: always ensure that there are no small, narrow moving obstacles (such as a child, animal, pushchair, bicycle, stone, post, etc.) in the blind spot when manoeuvring.
