Multi-terrain Monitor

The Multi-terrain Monitor displays the vehicle surroundings when driving at low speeds, thus assisting off-road driving and helping the driver to check the vehicle surroundings.

  •  By pressing the VIEW switch, the display can be shown, or the display image can be changed between the front screen, wide view front & side monitor screen, side-front simultaneous display monitor screen, side-rear simultaneous display monitor screen or rear screen. (The screens that can be selected differ depending on the shift position and the transfer mode.)
  •  By referring to the guidelines shown on the front monitor screen, you can decide a driving line while assessing the distance to obstacles ahead of the vehicle and confirm the projected path, and by using the wide view front & side monitors, the side-front simultaneous display monitor and the side-rear simultaneous display monitor to identify objects in the vicinity or course of the tires, you can drive while preventing the vehicle from becoming stuck unexpectedly.

Use the vehicle width line to check the vehicle’s distance from objects such as curbstones etc.

As shown in the illustration, be sure that the vehicle width line does not overlap the object. If you also move the vehicle so that the vehicle width line and the object are parallel, you can park parallel to the object.

Use the minimum projected turning

Use the minimum projected turning circle & projected course line (when displayed) to check the vehicle’s path with relation to obstacles.

If the minimum projected turning circle line (blue) is over the obstacle as shown in the illustration, or the obstacle falls within the minimum projected turning circle, if you turn with the minimum possible turning circle, the vehicle may collide with the object.

When the projected course line (yellow) is displayed, be sure to operate the steering wheel so that the obstacle stays outside the projected course line until the vehicle has passed the object.

In the following cases, it may be difficult to see images on the screen even when the system is functioning correctly:

  • The vehicle is in a dark area, such as at night.
  • The temperature near the lens is extremely high or low.
  • Water droplets are on the camera lens or humidity is high, such as when it rains.
  • Foreign matter, such as snow and mud, adheres to the camera lens.
  • The camera has scratches or dirt on it.
  • The sun or headlights are shining directly into the camera lens.
  • The camera lens is damaged by flying stones.
  • Smear effect

If a bright light, such as sunlight reflected

If a bright light, such as sunlight reflected off the vehicle body, is picked up by the camera, a smear effect* characteristic to the camera may occur.

*: Smear effect - A phenomenon that occurs when a bright light is picked up by the camera; when transmitted by the camera, the light source will appear to have streaks of light emanating from it.

The streaks will also appear when the light source is in the vehicle icon area.

  • Flicker effect

When the camera is used under fluorescent lights, sodium lights, mercury lights etc., the lights and the illuminated areas may appear to flicker.

  • Display settings

Refer to the “Navigation System Owner’s Manual”

  • If the message “System is initializing.” is displayed

“System is initializing.” will be displayed

“System is initializing.” will be displayed on the screen under the following conditions:

  •  The battery has been reinstalled.
  •  The steering wheel has been moved while the battery was being reinstalled.
  •  Battery power is low.
  •  The steering sensor has been reinstalled.
  •  There is a malfunction in the signals being output by the steering sensor.

    Initialize the system by performing either of the procedures below:

  •  Drive for a short period of time while keeping the steering wheel straight.
  •  Stop the vehicle, and turn the steering wheel as far as it will go to the left and right. On the system initialization screen, touch the “?” button to display the operating procedure.

If this does not resolve the symptom, have the vehicle inspected by your Toyota dealer.

CAUTION

  • When using the Multi-terrain Monitor system

Observe the following precautions to avoid an accident that could result in death or serious injuries:

  • Never depend solely on the monitor system.
  • Always check visually and with the mirrors to confirm your intended path is clear.
  • Depicted distances between objects and flat surfaces differ from actual distances.
  • Do not use the system if the hood or doors are open.
  • Conditions which may affect the Multi-terrain Monitor system

  • If the front or the rear of the vehicle or the outside rear view mirror has been hit, the camera’s position and mounting angle may have changed.

    Have the vehicle inspected by your Toyota dealer.

  • As the camera has a water proof construction, do not detach, disassemble or modify it. This may cause incorrect operation
  • Rapid temperature changes, such as when hot water is poured on the vehicle in cold weather, may cause the system to function abnormally.
  • If the camera lens is dirty, it cannot transmit a clear image. Rinse with water and wipe with a soft cloth. If the camera lens is extremely dirty, wash with a mild cleanser and rinse.
  • Do not strongly rub the camera lens. If the camera lens is scratched, it cannot transmit a clear image.
  • Do not allow organic solvent, car wax, window cleaner or glass coat to adhere to the camera. If this happens, wipe it off as soon as possible.
  • The displayed image may be darker and moving images may be slightly distorted when the system is cold.
  • Situations unsuitable for Multi-terrain Monitor
  •  On icy or slick road surfaces, or in snow
  •  When using tire chains

 

CAUTION

  • Conditions which may affect the Multi-terrain Monitor system

  • If the tires are changed, the position of the guide lines displayed on the screen may be incorrect. When changing the tires, consult your Toyota dealer.
  • Depending on the circumstances of the vehicle (number of passengers, amount of luggage, etc.), the position of the guide lines displayed on the screen may change. Be sure to check visually behind and all around the vehicle before proceeding.
  • Depending on the overall length of the vehicle (if a frontal protection system is installed or the bumper has been replaced, etc.), the position of the distance guidelines displayed on the front monitor may change. Be sure to check visually behind and all around the vehicle before proceeding.
  • When washing the vehicle, do not apply intensive bursts of water to the camera or camera area. Doing so may result in the camera malfunctioning.

 

NOTICE

  • When using the Multi-terrain Monitor

  • Even if an obstacle is no longer visible on the side monitor, do not turn the steering wheel further in the direction the vehicle is turning until the vehicle has moved completely past the obstacle. If the steering wheel is turned to full lock, the vehicle will turn in the smallest possible turning circle, and may collide with the obstacle.
  • It may be difficult to judge distance with the image from the front camera due to the characteristics of the lens. Drive carefully while checking the actual distance to the obstacles displayed on the screen. Also, give your full attention to sudden bumps in the road.
