  3. PRECAUTION


    1. Do not rely entirely on the parking assist monitor system. Use caution, just as you would when driving any vehicle.

    2. Never drive while looking only at the screen. The image on the screen may differ from actual conditions. If you drive while looking only at the screen, you may hit an object or have an accident. Be sure to confirm the safety of your surroundings when driving the vehicle.

    3. The camera uses a wide-angle lens. The perceived distance from images that appear on the screen differs from the actual distance.

    4. In the following cases, it may become difficult to see the images on the screen, but this is not a malfunction:


      1. In the dark (for example, at night).

      2. When the temperature near the lens is very high or low.

      3. When water droplets are adhering to the camera, or when humidity is high (for example, when it rains).

      4. When the camera has scratches or dirt on it.

      5. When foreign matter (for example, mud) is adhering to the camera lens.

      6. When the sun or the beam of headlights is shining directly into the camera lens.

    5. When the camera is used under fluorescent lights, sodium lights, or mercury lights etc., the lights and the illuminated area may appear to flicker.

    6. When washing the vehicle with a high-pressure washer, do not spray water on the rear television camera assembly or the surrounding area. High-pressure water can damage the camera.
