Chevrolet Sonic Owner's 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 4 seconds once the vehicle is shifted out of R (Reverse).

To return to the previous screen sooner, do one of the following:

Guidelines

To turn the guidelines on or off:

1. Shift into P (Park).

2. From the home page on the infotainment system, select Settings.

3. Select Rear Camera Options.

4. Select Guidelines.
