2010 Range Rover – Surround Camera System

This is one of the features I am looking forward to.  On the reverse screen they do talk about the virtual lines that appear to help you guage your location – I’ve seen this in US Spec manuals for models prior to 2010, but I don’t believe Land Rover ever turned it on – let’s hope it’s really coming this time. 

Anyway, here’s the real stuff:

360view

The surround camera system provides a view of the area surrounding the vehicle using five discretely placed cameras, to assist in manoeuvring the vehicle. With the ignition on and either Park or Neutral
selected, the screen will display images of the area immediately surrounding the vehicle to assist in manoeuvring the vehicle.

Automatic operation
When Drive or Reverse are selected the relevant camera view will be selected for the direction of movement. Once the vehicle speed exceeds 18 km/h (11 mph) the camera screen will disappear.
Note: The camera view will be disabled for the rest of that ignition cycle. To use the camera view again it will need to be selected manually.

Manual operation
The camera home page is accessed using the Cameras icon on the navigation home screen  The camera views can be selected whilst the vehicle is stationary with Park or Neutral selected. They can also be selected whilst the vehicle speed is below 18 km/h (11 mph).

Selecting views  

Displayed on the home page are real-time images from each of the five cameras fitted to the vehicle. Any two of the images can be selected and enlarged to view side-by-side on the screen, by highlighting the image then pressing the Enlarge icon. When viewing any two images, any single image can then be selected to view as a full screen image which can be zoomed into, and panned around using the magnifier and arrow icons.

Manual proximity viewMPV

Selecting proximity view from the camera home screen will display a combination of
three images from the front and passenger side cameras. These views give the driver an
enhanced view of the area forward and opposite the driver.

 Automatic proximity view

Dependent on specification, the system may become active when the ignition is switched
on. With the ignition switched on and either Park or Neutral selected, the touch screen will
display images of the area immediately surrounding the vehicle. When Drive or Reverse are selected, the
relevant camera view will be selected for the direction of travel. Once the vehicle speed exceeds 18 km/h (11 mph) or the return icon is pressed, the camera screen will disappear.

Note: The Proximity View will be disabled for the rest of that ignition cycle. to use the screen
again, press the Proximity View on the Cameras home page.

Special Views

specviews

A selection of pre-set views can be displayed by selecting Special Views. These have been
provided to assist with difficult manoeuvres. These are:
– Kerb view, shows views from the two front cameras;
– Junction view, shows views from the two side cameras;
– Trailer view, shows the rear camera view;

Reversing

When Reverse is selected, the touch screen automatically displays the view from the rear of
the vehicle. Overlaid on the rear view image are coloured lines representing the perimeter of the vehicle,
the predicted path of the vehicle (based on the position of the steering wheel) and the distance information from the Parking Aid system.
