Subaru Legacy Owners Manual: Help line

The help line (distance marker and vehicle width line) is a guide to help you realize the actual distance from the screen.

Help lines
Help lines

1) Vehicle width line (oblique vertical line)
2) Approx. 10 feet (3 m) from the bumper (green horizontal line)
3) Approx. 3 feet (1 m) from the bumper (yellow horizontal line)
4) Approx. 1.5 feet (0.5 m) from the bumper (red horizontal line)
5) Vehicle centerline

When the shift lever or select lever is set to position "R", the monitor screen displays the help lines together with the rear view image.

CAUTION
  •  When moving backward, always check the back with your eyes without relying on the help lines.
  •  The actual position may be different from the indication of the help lines.
  •  Differences may occur due to number of passengers or loaded cargo.
  •  When the vehicle is on a slope or when the vehicle is inclined against the road, the indication is different from the actual position.
  •  Be sure to observe the displayed warning message "Check Surroundings Before Backing Up".

NOTE If you shift to the "R" range shortly after turning on the ignition switch, the warning message "Check Surroundings Before Backing Up" may not be displayed. Wait for several seconds or more after turning on the ignition switch before shifting to the "R" range.

Then the warning message will be displayed.
