3. To ensure the camera systems are functioning as designed, keep the lens area of the cameras clean and free of any debris.

4. Do not use abrasive cleansers or a wire brush on the camera lens.

5. Avoid overloading the trunk, driving with a broken windshield, or installing non-conforming wheels and tires. This will throw the balance and aiming points of the cameras off, causing the system to malfunction or not operate at all.

6. For reference purposes: The rear «backup» camera requires a clear field of view for approximately 11 feet behind the rear bumper. The front camera should have 7 feet of clear view, and a side clear field of view of at least 6 feet.

7. Keep the windshield washer bottle topped off at all times. Most new vehicles equipped with a «360» camera are connected to the windshield washer system. When the camera becomes cloudy or dirty it can automatically clean itself.
