ABOUT YOUR VEHICLE’S CAMERA APP
If equipped, the available CAMERA app† allows you to select multiple camera views designed to show the area in front of, behind and around your vehicle. Available camera views may vary, depending on your vehicle.
WHAT IS THE CAMERA APP?
Your vehicle’s available CAMERA app lets you select multiple camera views that can help make you more aware of the area around your vehicle. The actual camera views you can select may vary, depending on your vehicle.
HOW DO I ACCESS THE CAMERA APP?
Press the CAMERA icon on your infotainment display to access the CAMERA app. When you enter the app, you may see the following, depending on your vehicle:
- Icons representing different views along the left or along the bottom of the screen
- A camera view displayed in the middle
- If your vehicle is equipped with available Surround View and you’ve enabled that feature, you may see an overhead Surround View/Overhead/Top-Down View of your vehicle on the right or left side of the screen (if enabled, this view will consistently display when you’re parked or driving at low speeds)
- Surround View uses cameras mounted on the outside rearview mirrors. If you open a vehicle door while this view is displayed, you’ll notice a blank field on the overhead view where that camera view would normally be

Depending on your vehicle’s equipment, you can select Trailer Hitch View when a trailer is connected.

- When this view is active, your vehicle may automatically apply the Electric Parking Brake upon shifting into PARK to help avoid unintentional rolling
Note: Trailering views for trucks and full-size SUVs are covered in a separate article.
Safety or driver assistance features are no substitute for the driver’s responsibility to operate the vehicle in a safe manner. The driver should remain attentive to traffic, surroundings and road conditions at all times. Visibility, weather and road conditions may affect feature performance. Read the vehicle’s Owner’s Manual for more important feature limitations and information.
You can view Trailer Hitch View and Rear Standard View while driving at low speeds (below 8 miles per hour/12 kilometers per hour). At speeds above 8 mph/12 kph, you can briefly observe these views while driving.
The vehicle displayed in the CAMERA app will always be a default colour that may vary by model. However, the camera will display objects such as trailers on-screen in their true colour.
Surround View/Top-Down View uses cameras mounted on the outside rearview mirrors to show the sides of the vehicle. Surround View/Top-Down View will display a black field around that area when the door is open.
