Automatic system cancelation

In the following situations, the system is canceled automatically.

• When the vehicle speed exceeds approximately 7 mph (12 km/h).

When the outside rear view mirrors have been folded

The side monitor screen can be displayed even if the outside rear view mirrors have been folded. In this case, there will be a slight difference between the image dis- played when the outside rear view mirrors are extended and when the outside rear view mirrors have been folded.

If the side monitor is displayed while the outside rear view mirrors are folded, you cannot check the area near the front edge of the vehicle as the base of the outside rear view mirrors will be in the way.

Displayed area

The area covered by the camera is limited. Objects which are close to either corner of the bumper or under the bumper cannot be seen on the screen.

The area displayed on the screen may vary depending on vehicle orientation or road conditions.

Smear effect

If a bright light, such as sunlight reflected off the vehicle body, is picked

If a bright light, such as sunlight reflected off the vehicle body, is picked up by the camera, a smear effect* characteristic to the camera may occur.

*: Smear effect ⎯ A phenomenon that occurs when a bright light is picked up by the camera; when transmitted by the cam- era, the light source will appear to have streaks of light emanating from it. The streaks will also appear when the light source is in the masked area.

Flicker effect

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

CAUTION

When using the wide view front & side monitor system

Observe the following precautions to avoid an accident that could result in death or serious injuries.

• Never depend solely on the monitor system.

• Always check visually and with the mirrors to confirm your intended path is clear.

• Depicted distances between objects and flat surfaces differ from actual dis- tances.

• Do not use the system if the hood or doors are open.

CAUTION

Conditions which may affect the wide view front & side monitor system

• If the front of the vehicle or the passenger side outside rear view mirror has been hit, the camera’s position and mounting angle may have changed. Have the vehi- cle inspected by your Lexus dealer.

• As the camera has a water proof construction, do not detach, disassemble or modify it. This may cause incorrect operation.

• Rapid temperature changes, such as when hot water is poured on the vehicle in cold weather, may cause the system to function abnormally.

• If the camera lens is dirty, it cannot transmit a clear image. Rinse with water and wipe with a soft cloth. If the camera lens is extremely dirty, wash with a mild cleanser and rinse.

• Do not strongly rub the camera lens. If the camera lens is scratched, it cannot transmit a clear image.

• Do not allow organic solvent, car wax, window cleaner or glass coat to adhere to the camera. If this happens, wipe it off as soon as possible.

• The displayed image may be darker and moving images may be slightly distorted when the system is cold.

• Situations unsuitable for wide view front & side monitor • On icy or slick road surfaces, or in snow.

• When using tire chains or emergency tires.

• On roads that are not flat or straight, such as curves or slopes.

• When washing the vehicle, do not apply intensive bursts of water to the camera or camera area. Doing so may result in the camera malfunctioning.

NOTICE

When using the wide view front & side monitor

Even if an obstacle is no longer visible on the side monitor, do not turn the steering wheel further in the direction the vehicle is turning until the vehicle has moved com- pletely past the obstacle. If the steering wheel is turned to full lock, the vehicle will turn in the smallest possible turning circle, and may collide with the obstacle.
