How does the rearview monitor work?
If your car is equipped with a rearview monitor, you have an important tool for increasing safety any time you back up your vehicle. The touchscreen in the center console is connected to a rear-facing camera that turns on whenever you put the car in reverse. All you need to do to see what’s behind you is to look at the monitor.
Don’t rely solely on the rearview monitor. You still need to manually check behind you and to the sides before backing up. This is only a supplemental safety system.
The camera won’t show you small objects below the bumper of the car, so use caution.
A wide angle lens is used on the camera, so objects are closer than they appear.
