Before using this product, be sure to read and fully understand the following safety information:
  • Do not operate this product, any applications, or the rearview camera option (if purchased) if doing so will divert your attention in any way from the safe operation of your vehicle. Always observe safe driving rules and follow all existing traffic regulations.

  • Never use headphones while driving.
  • Rear visibility systems (backup cameras) are required in certain new vehicles sold in the U.S. and Canada. U.S. regulations began according to a two-year phase-in on May 1, 2016, and both the U.S. and Canada require that all such vehicles manufactured on or after May 1, 2018, have rear visibility systems.

Please check with a qualified professional installer for installation options specific to your vehicle.

Parking brake interlock
Certain functions (such as viewing video images and certain touch panel key operations) offered by this product could be dangerous (possibly resulting in serious injury or death) and/or unlawful if used while driving. To prevent such functions from being used while the vehicle is in motion, there is an interlock system that senses when the parking brake is set and when the vehicle is moving.

If you attempt to use the functions described above while driving, they will become disabled until you stop the vehicle in a safe place, (1) apply the parking brake, (2) release the parking brake, and then (3) apply the parking brake again. Please keep the brake pedal pushed down before releasing the parking brake.


  • Do not take any steps to tamper with or disable the parking brake interlock system which is in place for your protection. Tampering with or disabling the parking brake interlock system could result in serious injury or death.
  • To avoid the risk of damage and injury and the potential violation of applicable laws, this product is not for use with a video image that is visible to the driver.
  • In some countries, the viewing of video images on a display inside a vehicle even by persons other than the driver may be illegal. Where such regulations apply, they must be obeyed. If you attempt to watch a video image while driving, the warning “Viewing of front seat video source while driving is strictly prohibited.” will appear on the screen. To watch the image on this display, stop the vehicle in a safe place and apply the parking brake. Please keep the brake pedal pushed down before releasing the parking brake.

  • Do not expose the LCD screen to direct sunlight when this product is not used. This may result in LCD screen malfunction due to the resulting high temperatures.
  • When using a cellular phone, keep the antenna of the cellular phone away from the LCD screen to prevent disruption of the video in the form of spots, colored stripes, etc.
  • To protect the LCD screen from damage, be sure to touch the touch panel keys only with your finger and do so gently.
