360° View Monitor (Mazda Connect (Type B))

360° View Monitor (Mazda Connect (Type B))*

360° View Monitor

The 360°View Monitor consists of the following functions which assist the driver in checking the area surrounding the vehicle using various indications in the center display and a WARNING sound while the vehicle is being driven at low speeds or while parking.

- Top view

The top view displays an image of the vehicle from directly above on the center display by combining the images taken from the 4 cameras set on all sides of the vehicle. The top view displays on the right side of the screen when the front view or rear view screen is being displayed. The top view assists the driver in checking the area surrounding the vehicle when the vehicle is moving forward or in reverse.

- Front view/front wide view

The image from the front of the vehicle is displayed on the center display.

The view from the front assists the driver in checking the front of the vehicle by displaying guide lines on the displayed image taken from the front of the vehicle.

- Side view

The images taken from the front left and right sides of the vehicle are displayed on the center display.

The side view assists the driver in checking the front sides of the vehicle by displaying guide lines on the displayed image taken from the front left and right sides of the vehicle.

- Rear view/rear wide view

The image from the rear of the vehicle is displayed on the center display.

The image from the rear assists the driver in checking the rear of the vehicle by displaying guide lines on the displayed image taken from the rear of the vehicle.

- Parking sensor

If there are any obstructions near the vehicle while the top view/side view is displayed, an obstruction detection indication turns on around the bumper in the center display.

The parking sensors use ultrasonic sensors to detect obstructions around the vehicle when the vehicle is driven at low speeds, such as during garage or parallel parking, and notifies the driver of the approximate distance from the vehicle to the surrounding obstruction using sound and an obstruction detection indication.

Refer to Parking Sensor System on page 4-302.

- Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA)

If there is the possibility of a collision with an approaching vehicle while the rear view/ rear wide view is displayed, a WARNING is displayed on the center display.

The Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) uses rear side radar sensor to detect vehicles approaching from the rear left and right sides of the vehicle, and it assists the driver in checking the rear of the vehicle while reversing by flashing the Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) WARNING lights and activating the WARNING sound.


Refer to Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) on page 4-141.

WARNING

WARNING

WARNING

Always confirm the safety of the area around the vehicle with the mirrors and directly with your eyes when driving:

The 360°View Monitor is an auxiliary device which assists the driver in checking the safety of the area around the vehicle.

The shooting range of the cameras and detection range of the sensors are limited. For example, the areas in black at the front and rear of the vehicle image and the seams where each of the camera images merge are blind spots where an obstruction may not be visible. In addition, the extended vehicle width lines and projected vehicle path lines are only to be used as references, and the images on the screen may differ from the actual conditions.

- The method for parking/stopping the vehicle using the 360°View Monitor differs depending on the road circumstances/conditions and the vehicle conditions. When and how much you turn the steering wheel will differ depending on the situation, therefore always check the vehicle surroundings directly with your eyes while using the system.

Also, before using the system, always make sure that the vehicle can be parked/stopped in the parking/stopping space.


NOTE

- If there are water droplets, snow, or mud on the camera lens, wipe it off using a soft cloth. If the camera lens is especially dirty, wash it off with mild detergent.

- If the camera lens is touched or there is any dirt on it, it could affect the screen image. Wipe the lens using a soft cloth.

- If the area where the camera is installed, such as the front bumper, liftgate or door mirrors, has been damaged in a vehicle accident, the camera (position, installation angle) may have shifted. Always consult an Authorized Mazda Dealer to have the vehicle inspected.


- If the camera is subjected to excessive changes in temperature such as by pouring hot water on the camera during cold weather, the 360°View Monitor may not operate normally.

For details, refer to the parking sensor obstruction detection indication and WARNING sound. Refer to Parking Sensor System on page 4-302.


NOTE

- Because there might be a difference between the image displayed on the screen, such as indicated in the following, and the actual conditions when parking, always check the safety at the rear of the vehicle and the surrounding area directly with your eyes.

- Even though the back end of the parking space (or garage) displayed on the screen and distance guide lines appear parallel, they may not actually be parallel.

- When parking in a space with a division line on only one side of the parking space, even though the division line and the vehicle width guide line appear parallel, they may not actually be parallel.

- The following shows an example of vehicle parking with the steering wheel turned to the left while backing up the vehicle. When backing into a parking space from the opposite direction, the steering operation is reversed.


1. Back the vehicle into the parking space by turning the steering wheel so that the vehicle enters the center of the parking space.
