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 vehicle icon area.

CAUTION

When using the Multi-terrain 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 Multi-terrain Monitor system

• If the front or the rear of the vehicle or the outside rear view mirror has been hit, the camera’s position and mounting angle may have changed. Have the vehicle 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 Multi-terrain Monitor • On icy or slick road surfaces, or in snow • When using tire chains • 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 Multi-terrain Monitor

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

• It may be difficult to judge distance with the image from the front camera due to the characteristics of the lens. Drive carefully while checking the actual distance to the obstacles displayed on the screen. Also, give your full attention to sudden bumps in the road.
