Q&As

Can I use the CAMERA app at highway speeds?

You can view Trailer Hitch View and Rear Standard View while driving at low speeds (below 8 miles per hour/12 kilometers per hour). At speeds above 8 mph/12 kph, you can briefly observe these views while driving.

Why does the CAMERA app show a vehicle that’s a different color from mine?

The vehicle displayed in the CAMERA app will always be a default color that may vary by model. However, the camera will display objects such as trailers on-screen in their true color.

Why does Surround View/Top-Down View display a black field when I open a door?

Surround View/Top-Down View uses cameras mounted on the outside rearview mirrors to show the sides of the vehicle. Surround View/Top-Down View will display a black field around that area when the door is open.
