Chevrolet Cruze Owners Manual: Rear Vision Camera (RVC)

This vehicle may have the RVC system. Read this entire section before using it.

The RVC system can assist the driver when backing up by displaying a view of the area behind the vehicle.

WARNING

The RVC system does not display children, pedestrians, bicyclists, animals, or any other object located outside the camera's field of view, below the bumper, or under the vehicle. Perceived distances may be different from actual distances. Do not back the vehicle using only the RVC screen, during longer, higher speed backing maneuvers, or where there could be cross traffic. Failure to use proper care before backing may result in injury, death, or vehicle damage.

Always check behind and around the vehicle before backing.

An image appears on the infotainment screen when the vehicle is shifted into R (Reverse).

The infotainment screen goes to the previous screen after approximately 10 seconds once the vehicle is shifted out of R (Reverse).

To cancel the delay, do one of the following: Press a hard key on the infotainment system.

Shift into P (Park).

Reach a vehicle speed of 8 km/h (5 mph).

Turning the Rear Vision Camera System On or Off

To turn the RVC system on or off: 1. Shift into P (Park).

2. Press the CONFIG button to enter the configure menu options.

3. Select Display.

4. Select Rear Camera Options.

5. Select Camera. When a checkmark appears next to the Camera option, then the RVC system is on.

Symbols

The system may have a feature that lets the driver view symbols on the infotainment screen while using the RVC. The Ultrasonic Rear Park Assist (URPA) system must not be disabled to use the caution symbols.

The error message Rear Parking Assist Symbols Unavailable may display if URPA has been disabled and the symbols have been turned on. See Ultrasonic Parking Assist on page 9‑39.

The symbols appear and may cover an object when viewing the infotainment screen when an object is detected by the URPA system.

To turn the symbols on or off: 1. Shift into P (Park).

2. Press the CONFIG button to enter the configure menu options.

3. Select Display.

4. Select Rear Camera Options.

5. Select Symbols. When a checkmark appears next to the Symbols option, symbols will appear.

Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA)

On vehicles with the RCTA, a warning triangle with an arrow may also display on the RVC screen to warn of traffic coming from either direction. Three beeps will sound from the speaker on that side. This system detects objects coming from up to 30m (98 ft) from the left or right side behind the vehicle. The RCTA system will not work properly if ice, snow, mud, or anything else builds up on the rear bumper sensors.

Use caution while backing up when towing a trailer, as the RCTA detection zones that extend out from the back of your vehicle do not move further back when a trailer is towed.

Guidelines

The RVC system may have a guideline overlay that can help the driver align the vehicle when backing into a parking spot.

To turn the guidelines on or off: 1. Shift into P (Park).

2. Press the CONFIG button to enter the configure menu options.

3. Select Display.

4. Select Rear Camera Options.

5. Select Guidelines. When a checkmark appears next to the Guidelines option, guidelines will appear.
