Nissan Altima Owners Manual: Operating tips

● When the shift lever is shifted to R (Reverse), the monitor screen automatically changes to the RearView Monitor mode.

However, the radio can be heard.

● It may take some time until the RearView Monitor is displayed after the shift lever has been shifted to R (Reverse). Objects may be distorted momentarily until the RearView Monitor screen is displayed completely.

When the shift lever is returned to a position other than R (Reverse), it may take some time until the screen changes. Objects on the screen may be distorted until they are completely displayed.

● When the temperature is extremely high or low, the screen may not clearly display objects.

This is not a malfunction.

● When strong light directly enters the camera, objects may not be displayed clearly.

● Vertical lines may be seen in objects on the screen. This is due to strong reflected light from the bumper. This is not a malfunction.

● The screen may flicker under fluorescent light. This is not a malfunction.

● The colors of objects on the RearView Monitor may differ somewhat from those of the actual object.

● Objects on the monitor may not be clear in a dark place or at night. This is not a malfunction.

● If dirt, rain or snow attaches to the camera, the RearView Monitor may not display objects.

● Do not use alcohol, benzine or thinner to clean the camera. This will cause discoloration.

To clean the camera, wipe with a cloth dampened with diluted mild cleaning agent and then wife with a dry cloth.

● Do not damage the camera as the monitor screen may be adversely affected.

● Do not use wax on the camera window.
