How to park with predictive course lines

WARNING

Always turn and check that it is safe to park your car before backing up.

Always back up slowly.
Use the displayed lines as a reference.

The lines are highly affected by the number of occupants, fuel level, vehicle position, road condition and road grade.
If the tires are replaced with different sized tires, the predictive course line may not be displayed correctly.
On a snow-covered or slippery road, there may be a difference between the predictive course line and the actual course line.
  If the battery is disconnected or becomes discharged, the predictive course lines may not be displayed correctly. If this occurs, perform the following procedures.

— Drive the vehicle on a straight road for more than 5 minutes.

When the steering wheel is turned with the ignition switch in the “ACC” position, the predictive course lines may not be displayed correctly.
The displayed lines will appear slightly off to the right because the RearView camera is not installed in the rear center of the vehicle.
The distance guide line and the vehicle width guide line should be used as a reference only when the vehicle is on a level paved surface.

The distance viewed on the monitor is for reference only and may be different than the actual distance between the vehicle and displayed objects.
When backing up the vehicle up a hill, objects viewed in the monitor are further than they appear. When backing up the vehicle down a hill, objects viewed in the monitor are closer than they appear. Use the inside mirror or glance over your shoulder to properly judge distances to other objects.

The vehicle width and predictive course lines are wider than the actual width and course.

Difference between predictive and actual

Difference between predictive and actual distances

Backing up on a steep uphill:

When backing up the vehicle up a hill, the distance guide lines and the vehicle width guide lines are shown closer than the actual distance.

For example, the display shows 3 ft (1 m) to the place A , but the actual 3 ft (1 m) distance on the hill is the place B . Note that any object on the hill is viewed in the monitor further than it appears.

Backing up on a steep downhill:

For example, the display shows 3 ft (1 m) to the place A , but the actual 3 ft (1 m) distance on the hill is the place B . Note that any object on the hill is viewed in the monitor closer than it appears.

Backing up near a projecting object:

Backing up near a projecting object:

The predictive course lines A do not touch the object in the display. However, the vehicle may hit the object if it projects over the actual backing up course

Backing up behind a projecting object:

Backing up behind a projecting object:

The position  C is shown further than the position  B in the display. However, the position  C is actually at the same distance as the position  A . The vehicle may hit the object when backing up to the position  A if the object projects over the actual backing up course.
