Description and Operation


Back view camera will activate when the backup light is ON with the ignition switch ON and the shift lever in the R position.

This system is a supplemental system that shows behind the vehicle through the ECM (Reverse Display Room Mirror) mirror or the Navigation unit while backing-up.
