Moving into reverse gear, the camera 1 located on the tailgate provides a view of the area behind the vehicle on the multimedia screen 2, accompanied by one or two moving or fixed guide lines 4 and 3.
This system is initially used with the aid of several gauges (mobile for trajectory and fixed for distance). When the red zone is reached, use the bumper image to stop accurately.
Fixed gauge 3
The fixed clearance gauge comprises coloured markers A, B and C, indicating the distance behind the vehicle:
- A (red) approximately 30 centimetres from the vehicle;
- B (yellow) approximately 70 centimetres from the vehicle;
- C (green) approximately 150 centimetres from the vehicle.
This gauge remains fixed and indicates the vehicle trajectory if the wheels are in line with the vehicle.
4 moving guide line:
This is shown in blue on the multifunction screen 2. It indicates the vehicle trajectory according to the position of the steering wheel.
Make sure that the camera is not obscured (by dirt, mud, snow, condensation, etc.).
Activating, deactivating the reversing camera
From the multifunction screen 2, select “Vehicle”, “Settings”, “Parking assistance”, then “Rear view camera”. Activate or deactivate the reversing camera and confirm your choice.
You can also adjust the camera image settings (brightness, contrast, etc.)
The screen shows a reverse mirror image.
The frames are a representation projected onto flat ground; this information must not be taken into account when superimposed on a vertical object or an object on the ground.
Objects which appear on the edge of the screen may be deformed.
In very bright light (snow, vehicle in sunshine etc.), the camera vision may be adversely affected.
If the boot is open or poorly closed, the message “Boot open” appears and the camera display disappears.
This function is an additional aid. It cannot, therefore, under any circumstances replace the vigilance or the responsibility of the driver.
The driver should always look out for sudden hazards during driving: always ensure that there are no moving obstacles (such as a child, animal, pram, bicycle, etc.) or small, narrow objects such as stones or posts in your path when manoeuvring.
