What’s the Benefit? Honda LaneWatch15 adds confidence and convenience when driving on roads with multiple lanes of traffic.
Honda LaneWatch is standard on HR-V EX and EX-L Navi models.
It uses a camera located below the passenger-side mirror to display an expanded rear view of the passenger-side roadway through the Display Audio screen.
The image appears when the right-turn signal is activated or a button on the end of the stalk is pushed.
The normal field of view for a passenger-side mirror is approximately 18 to 22 degrees. However, the Honda LaneWatch field of view is about four times greater—around 80 degrees. This is enough to allow drivers to see more than two complete lanes to the right rear—up to 164 feet.
The system enables the driver to see traffic, as well as objects or pedestrians, in what would otherwise be the vehicle’s blind spot.
