WARNING:

- Always turn and check that it is safe to do so 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 conditions and road grade.

- If the tires are replaced with different sized tires, the predicted course lines may be displayed incorrectly.

- On a snow-covered or slippery road, there may be a difference between the predicted course line and the actual course line.

- If the battery is disconnected or becomes discharged, the predicted course lines may be displayed incorrectly.

If this occurs, please perform the following procedures:
