RÜCKFAHRKAMERA

WARNING

The driver is responsible for detecting obstacles and estimating the vehicle's distance from them when reversing.

CAUTION

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

CAUTION

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

NOTES

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

NOTES

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

NOTES

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

The rear camera is located above the rear number plate. The camera 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, colour image from the rear of the vehicle. Overlaid on the image are lines to aid with reversing and parking. Also displayed is an indication of which sensors are active.

  1. Dotted line: The safe working width of the vehicle, including the door mirrors.

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

  3. Parking sensor activation: A coloured area is displayed, to indicate which rear sensor(s) has been activated.

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

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

NOTES

The user options menu 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 return 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 with the process of guiding the vehicle to a towing hitch. A single line is displayed as the reversing guidance line. See ANHÄNGERKUPPLUNGSHILFE.

For vehicles fitted with a surround camera system:

  1. Hitch Assist: Select OFF or ON. See ANHÄNGERKUPPLUNGSHILFE.

  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 discontinues 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 18 km/h (11 mph).
