Parking Sensor: Audible warning of objects you can’t see when reversing

The parking sensor makes parking easier by sensing obstacles behind and around the rear of CX-9 you can’t see in the mirrors. When an object is detected, a beeper sounds to warn you of its presence. As you get nearer to the object, the beeps get closer together until they become a continuous sound when CX-9 is 0.3 metres from the obstacle.

Warning beep operation:
Distance between vehicle rear and obstacle is:
1.5 m to 0.3 m = Intermittent beep (interval becomes shorter as obstacle gets closer)
0.3 m or less = Continuous beep
