Nissan Altima Owners Manual: How to park with predicted course lines

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:
Ц Turn the steering wheel from lock to lock while the engine is running.

Ц Drive the vehicle on a straight road for more than 5 minutes.

● When the steering wheel is turned with the ignition switch in the ACC position, the predicted course lines may be displayed incorrectly.

● The distance guide line and the vehicle width 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, objects viewed in the monitor are further than they appear. When backing up the vehicle down a hill, objects viewed in the monitor are closer than they appear.

Use the inside mirror or glance over your shoulder to properly judge distances to other objects.

The vehicle width and predicted course lines are wider than the actual width and course.

The distance guide line and the vehicle width guide line she 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 m ) to the A , but the actual 3 ft. (1 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.

Backing up behind a projecting object

The position C is shown farther than the position B in the display. However, the position C is actually at the same distance as the position A .

The vehicle may hit the object when backing up to the position A if the object projects over the actual backing up course.
