Mazda 3 Owners Manual: Rear View Monitor Operation

Mazda 3 Owners Manual / When Driving / Rear View Monitor / Rear View Monitor Operation

The operation of the rear view monitor when reversing the vehicle varies depending on the traffic, road, and vehicle conditions. The amount of steering and the timing also varies depending on conditions, so confirm the surrounding conditions directly with your eyes and steer the vehicle in accordance with the conditions.

Be well aware of the above cautions prior to using the rear view monitor.

NOTE Images displayed on the monitor from the rear view parking camera are reversed images (mirror images).

  1. Shift the shift lever to R to switch the display to the rear view monitor display.
  2. Confirming the surrounding conditions, reverse the vehicle.

  1. After your vehicle begins entering the parking space, continue backing up slowly so that the distance between the vehicle width lines and the sides of the parking space on the left and right are roughly equal.
  2. Continue to adjust the steering wheel until the vehicle width guide lines are parallel to the left and right sides of the parking space.
  3. Once they are parallel, straighten the wheels and back your vehicle slowly into the parking space. Continue checking the vehicle's surroundings and then stop the vehicle in the best possible position. (If the parking space has division lines, check whether the vehicle width guide lines are parallel to them.)
