The all new 2019 Infiniti Q50 comes with a host of great safety features and one of them is called the Around View Monitor.
The Around View® Monitor is a parking aid that provides views of your vehicle’s position in relation to surrounding objects. There are cameras located in the center of the front grille, on the outside mirrors and above the rear license plate.
The Around View® Monitor displays a combination of views on the upper touch screen display when activated with the ignition switch in the ON position.
- Bird’s-eye View shows a top view around your vehicle.
- Front-side View shows the area around and ahead of the passenger’s side front wheel.
- Front View shows the area directly in front of your vehicle.
- Front-Wide View shows a wider picture of the area directly in front of your vehicle.
- Rear View shows a picture of the area directly behind your rear bumper,
- Rear-Wide View, if so equipped, shows a wider picture of the area directly behind the vehicle.
Touch the CHANGE VIEW key on the upper touch screen display or press the CAMERA button on the INFINITI controller repeatedly to cycle through the available view combinations. The available views vary based on the position of the shift lever. Certain view combinations are displayed in a split-screen format. The front and rear views display the approximate distance between an object and your vehicle with colored lines.
- The RED line designates an object approximately 1.5 feet away.
- The YELLOW line designates an object is approximately 3 feet away.
- The first GREEN line designates an object is approximately 7 feet away.
- And if so equipped, the second GREEN line designates an object is approximately 10 feet away.
When the steering wheel is turned, predictive course lines are also displayed on the screen. These lines show the approximate path the vehicle will take. The predictive course lines move in conjunction with how far the steering wheel is turned.
The sonar function alerts the driver when obstacles are near the bumper at speeds at or below approximately 5 miles-per-hour. When the shift lever is in Drive, obstacles are detected when in the Front View. Obstacles are detected in both the Front View and Rear View when the shift lever is in Reverse.
When an obstacle is detected, a tone sounds and increases in frequency as the vehicle gets closer to the obstacle. When the obstacle is very close to the vehicle, the tone becomes continuous.
An indicator is shown on the Around View® Monitor at the corner of the vehicle that is near the obstacle. The indicator changes from a slowly blinking green indicator, to a faster blinking yellow indicator, then to a solid red indicator as the obstacle gets closer.
The Moving Object Detection or (MOD) system operates when the Around View® Monitor is active and can help inform the driver of moving objects surrounding the vehicle when driving out of parking structures, garages, or maneuvering in parking lots.
A green MOD icon is displayed on the view where the MOD system is operative and a gray MOD icon is displayed on the view where the MOD system is not operative.
When the shift lever is in the DRIVE position and the vehicle speed is below approximately 5 miles per hour, the MOD system detects moving objects in the Front-View and the Front-Wide view.
When the shift lever is in the REVERSE position and the vehicle speed is below approximately 5 MPH, the MOD system detects moving objects in the Rear-View and the Rear-Wide view.
If the MOD system detects a moving object near the vehicle, a yellow frame appears on the display screen and a chime sounds once. The yellow frame remains on the screen as long as the MOD system continues to detect moving objects.
The MOD system will not operate if any door or the trunk is open. To disable the sonar and MOD functions together, touch the SONAR/MOD key on the display when in a camera view.
