Three lines that appear on the screen can give an idea of how far the vehicles or objects on the screen are from your vehicle, respectively.

If an object is near line 1 (in red), it indicates that it is close to your vehicle whereas an object near line 3 farther away.

The area around the reference line 1 (red) is very close to your vehicle. As always, make sure to visually confirm the safety of a lane change before changing lanes.

The LaneWatch display does not come on at all.
