System limits

The system cannot serve as a substitute Personal responsibility

The system cannot serve as a substitute for the driver's personal judgment of the course of the road and the traffic situation.

In the event of a warning, do not jerk the steering wheel, as you may lose control of the vehicle.

The system may not be fully functional in the following situations:

  • In heavy fog, rain or snowfall.
  • In the event of worn, poorly visible, merging, diverging, or multiple lane markings such as in construction areas.
  • When lane markings are covered in snow, ice, dirt or water.
  • In tight curves or on narrow lanes.
  • When the lane markings are covered by objects.
  • When driving very close to the vehicle in front of you.
  • When driving toward bright lights.
  • When the windshield in front of the interior rearview mirror is fogged over, dirty or covered with stickers, etc.
