Final Word on Camera Dash Line Distance

I read somewhere in the manual the distance from the dash line in the camera to the bumper was 18".

Recent posts suggested by clueless sales people listed "the bumper" and other figures.

Pics below are self explanatory.

I seem to remember reading in the manual that the distance to the dotted line is 20" from the bumper and each solid line represents 1 yard, 2 yards and 3 yards from it.

It's published in the owner's manual. That's probably where you read the number.
The number that's not published is the distance lines on the Lane Watch Camera.

Good, I wasn't too far off. I had just substituted yards for meters.

What messes me up are the side lines.

I start backing up while watching the lines turn in the direction I'm turning, I see the lines come very close to a car, curb or whatever, then I stop, look out the window only to discover I'm not as close as it appears in the screen.

This week I'm gonna set up an obstacle coarse and get actual #s for Side (Mirror) & Rear (Backup)...Been putting it off way too long.

I want to know if it is normal; that I see the bottom of the trunk's chrome trim on the camera, making the whole top part of the display unusable.

has anyone else notice that, or is my camera out of aligment?

The cam has 3 modes (at least on the Ex-L). Hit the select button on the imid to change the view.

Like my 12 MDx and 07 MDX, still very useful.

Sounds like JZP has a cam that is not so useful.

FWIW I rarely use the other 2 modes but when used, they are nice. One mode is so wide it serves as cross path detection and the top view allows you to line up perfectly between the lines but offers virtually no view to the rear which is expected.

Thanks II Kings, I will try that later today; if not I will ask the dealer to align it when I go for my first free maintenance; they need to fix the wind noise as well coming from my door (I know there is TSB)

Has anybody been able to locate in the manual what it means when the dynamic guidelines change color from amber to red?

Question

Is there a sound function on the reverse camera when approaching an object in reverse?
