CONTROL DE ÁNGULOS MUERTOS

WARNING

The blind spot monitor system is a supplement to, not a replacement for, a safe driving style and use of the door mirrors and rear-view mirrors. The system may not function under all speeds, weather, and road conditions.

WARNING

The blind spot monitor system may not be able to give adequate warning of vehicles approaching very quickly from behind.

WARNING

The blind spot monitor system may not be able to detect all vehicles and may also detect objects such as roadside barriers, etc. Drive safely at all times and use the door mirrors and rear-view mirrors to avoid accidents.

WARNING

The blind spot monitor system does not correct errors of judgement in driving.

WARNING

The radar sensors may be impaired by mud, rain, frost, ice, snow, or road spray. The blind spot monitor system's ability to reliably detect a vehicle within the driver's blind spot may be affected.

CAUTION

Make sure that the warning icons and indicators in the door mirrors are not obscured by stickers or other objects.

CAUTION

Do not attach stickers or objects to the rear bumper that may interfere with the radar sensors.

NOTES

The blind spot monitor system does not operate if an electrical connector is connected to a Jaguar Land Rover approved trailer socket. The blind spot monitor system remains disabled if a trailer is disconnected from the trailer socket while the engine is still running. Switch the vehicle's ignition off, then back on again, to enable the blind spot monitor system.

The blind spot monitor monitors a zone that covers the area adjacent to the vehicle, which is not easily visible to the driver. The radars on each side of the vehicle identify any overtaking vehicle within the driver's blind spot area. The system disregards other objects which may be stationary or travelling in the opposite direction, etc.

  1. Driver's blind spot area.

  2. Door mirror icons: The amber warning icon illuminates in the door mirror when an overtaking vehicle is detected.

  3. System disabled indicator: The amber indicator illuminates in the door mirror when the system is not active.

When an overtaking vehicle is detected by the blind spot monitor system, an amber warning icon illuminates in the relevant door mirror to alert the driver. There is a potential hazard in the vehicle's blind spot and, therefore, a lane change might be dangerous.

The radar monitors the area extending from the door mirrors rearward. The radar monitoring extends to the width of a typical carriageway lane. The radar monitoring is approximately 6 m behind the rear wheels and up to 2.5 m from the side of the vehicle. The blind spot monitor system is designed to work most effectively when driving on multi-lane roads.

NOTES

The radar sensor is approved in all RTTE countries.

NOTES

The blind spot monitor system covers an area of a fixed lane width. When the lanes are narrower than a typical carriageway lane, objects travelling in non-adjacent lanes may be detected.

NOTES

When overtaking vehicles are detected on both sides simultaneously, the warning icons in both mirrors illuminate.

The blind spot monitor system automatically switches on and becomes active when the vehicle is travelling at more than 10 km/h (6 mph) in a forward gear. When the system initiates, it performs a self-check. During the self-check, the warning icons in the mirrors illuminate alternately for a short period of time.

The amber indicator (3) remains illuminated until the vehicle's forward speed exceeds 10 km/h (6 mph).

The blind spot monitor system is automatically disabled and the amber indicator illuminates in the door mirrors when:

  • Reverse (R) gear is selected.

  • Park (P) is selected for vehicles with an automatic transmission.

  • The vehicle's speed is below 6 km/h (4 mph).

The blind spot monitor system can be enabled or disabled through the instrument panel menu. See MENÚ DEL CUADRO DE INSTRUMENTOS.

NOTES

The blind spot monitor system is disabled when a trailer is attached.
