Camera aiding sonar (parking sensor) (rear center sonar if so equipped)

Camera aiding sonar (parking sensor) (rear center sonar if so equipped)  - Around View Monitor (if so equipped) - Monitor, climate, audio, phone and voice recognition systems - Infiniti JX Owners Manual - Infiniti JX

The sonar (parking sensor) sounds a tone to inform the driver of obstacles near the bumper.

WARNING
● The sonar (parking sensor) is a convenience feature. It is not a substitute for proper parking.
● The driver is always responsible for safety during parking and other maneuvers.
● Always look around and check that it is safe to move before parking.
● Read and understand the limitations of the sonar (parking sensor) as contained in this section.
● The colors of the sonar indicators and the distance guide lines in the front, front-wide, rear and rear-wide views indicate different distances to the object.
● Inclement weather or Ultrasonic sources such as an automatic car wash, a trucks compressed-air brakes or a pneumatic drill may affect the function of the system; this may include reduced performance or a false activation.
● This function is designed as an aid to the driver in detecting large stationary objects to help avoid damaging the vehicle.
● The system is not designed to prevent contact with small or moving objects.
● The system will not detect small objects below the bumper, and may not detect objects close to the bumper or on the ground.
● The system may not detect the following objects:
Fluffy objects such as snow, cloth, cotton, glass or wool.
Thin objects such as rope, wire or chain.
Wedge-shaped objects.
● If your vehicle sustains damage to the bumper fascia, leaving it misaligned or bent, the sensing zone may be altered causing inaccurate measurement of objects or false alarms.

CAUTION
● Excessive noise (such as audio system volume or an open vehicle window) will interfere with the tone and it may not be heard.
● Keep the surface of the sonar sensors (located on the front and rear bumper fascia) free from accumulations of snow, ice and dirt. Do not scratch the surface of the sonar sensors when cleaning. If the sensors are covered, the accuracy of the sonar function will be diminished.

The system gives the tone for front objects when the shift selector is in the D (Drive) position and both front and rear objects when the shift selector is in the R (Reverse) position.

When the camera image is shown on the display, the system shows the sonar indicator regardless of the shift selector position.

The system is deactivated at speeds above 6 mph (10 km/h). It is reactivated at lower speeds.

When the objects are detected, the indicator (green) appears and blinks and the tone sounds intermittently. When the vehicle moves closer to the object, the color of the indicator turns yellow and the rate of the blinking and the rate of the tone increase. When the vehicle is very close to the object, the indicator stops blinking and turns red, and the tone sounds continuously.

The intermittent tone will stop after three seconds when an object is detected by only the corner sonar and the distance does not change.

The tone will stop when the object gets away from the vehicle.

When the switch 1 is selected, the indicator 2 will turn off and the sonar will be turned off temporarily. The MOD system will also be turned off at the same time. When the switch is selected again, the indicator will turn on and the sonar will turn back on.

When the switch 1 is selected, the indicator 2 will turn off and the sonar will be turned off temporarily. The MOD system will also be turned off at the same time. When the switch is selected again, the indicator will turn on and the sonar will turn back on.

In the below cases, the sonar will be turned back on automatically:

● When the shift selector is in the R (Reverse) position.
● When the CAMERA button is pressed and a screen other than the camera view is shown on the display.
● When vehicle speed decreases below approximately 6 mph (10 km/h).
● When the ignition switch is placed in the OFF position and turned back to the ON position again.
● When the switch is selected, theMODfunction will also be turned off.

To prevent the sonar system from activating altogether, use the Camera Settings menu. For more information, see Around View Monitor settings in this section.
