When you put your car in reverse and the rearview camera activates, the monitor will show you a picture of what’s behind you, overlaid with four lines of different colors. Understanding what they mean is critical to using this system and backing the car up safely.

  • Red: The red line means the object is only about a foot and a half from your car.

  • Yellow: The yellow line indicates that the object is about three feet from your car.

  • First Green: The first green line indicates that the object is about seven feet from your car.

  • Second Green: The second green line (top) indicates that the object is about 10 feet from the car.

Tips

  • The lines are only a rough guide. The distance is estimated. Use caution and your own best judgement when backing up.

  • Never use only the rearview monitor to back up. You still need to physically turn your head and check.
