Important safety notes

The rear view camera is only an aid. It is not a replacement for your attention to your immediate surroundings. You are always responsible for safe maneuvering and parking. When maneuvering or parking, make sure that there are no persons, animals or objects in the area in which you are maneuvering.

Under the following circumstances, the rear view camera will not function, or will function in a limited manner:
the rear door is open in heavy rain, snow or fog at night or in very dark places if the camera is exposed to very bright light if the area is lit by fluorescent light or LED lighting (the display may flicker) if there is a sudden change in temperature, e.g. when driving into a heated garage in winter
if the camera lens is dirty or obstructed if the rear of your vehicle is damaged. In this event, have the camera position and setting checked at a qualified specialist workshop. Mercedes-Benz recommends that you use an authorized Mercedes-Benz Center for this purpose
