Difference between predicted and actual distances

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, the distance guide lines and the vehicle width guide lines are shown closer than the actual distance.

For example, the display shows 3 ft (1.0 m) to the place (A) , but the actual 3 ft (1.0 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.

The predicted 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.

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) .
