REAR TRAFFIC MONITOR

WARNING

The rear traffic monitor system may not be able to detect all obstacles. The driver remains responsible for detecting obstacles and estimating the vehicle's distance from the objects when manoeuvring the vehicle. Driver distraction can lead to accidents, potentially causing serious injury or death.

WARNING

The rear camera and bumper must be kept clean and free from debris or obstructions, e.g., ice, frost, snow, leaves, mud, or insects. Failure to keep the rear camera and bumper clear may result in miscalculations or false indications, and can lead to accidents, potentially causing serious injury or death.

NOTES

Rear traffic monitor messages are displayed either on the touchscreen or in the instrument panel.

  1. Vehicle warning icon: The CAMERA screen, or the PARKING AID screen, depending on the current selection, displays a vehicle warning icon on the relevant side(s) of the screen. The vehicle warning icon indicates the presence of a moving vehicle.

  2. Parking aid plan view.

  3. Camera icon: Touch to select the camera feature.

  4. System disabled warning icon: The system disabled warning icon is displayed when the system is not active.

The rear traffic monitor system adds extra functionality to the rear camera image, by providing vehicle warning icons (1) on the touchscreen. The vehicle warning icons (1) inform the driver that the vehicle is about to reverse into the path of a moving vehicle that potentially poses as an accident risk.

The rear traffic monitor system automatically activates when Reverse (R) is selected, and the vehicle is reversing at speeds of less than 16 km/h (10 mph). The rear traffic monitor system detects cross traffic vehicles at speeds of up to 55 km/h (34 mph).

The rear traffic monitor system can also be disabled or re-enabled via the Driver assistance menu, in the instrument panel. See INSTRUMENT PANEL MENU.

To move from the CAMERA screen to the PARKING AID screen, touch the parking aid plan view (2) on the touchscreen.

To move from the PARKING AID screen to the CAMERA screen, touch the camera icon (3).

The rear traffic monitor system automatically disables if any of the sensors become partially or completely obscured. The touchscreen or instrument panel displays a message to inform the driver that a sensor is blocked.

Check that there is nothing obscuring the rear bumper's surface. Check that the bumper is clear from ice, frost, snow, mud, and dirt.

If a fault is detected, or the system is not available, the system disabled warning icon (4) is displayed on the touchscreen. The touchscreen or instrument panel displays a message to inform the driver that the system is not available.

NOTES

If the detected fault affects a radar sensor on only one side of the vehicle, the whole system is disabled. If the fault is temporary, the system operates correctly once the vehicle's electrical system is restarted.

If a fault occurs that is not rectified when the vehicle's electrical system is restarted, consult a retailer/authorised repairer.
