Toyota Bird’s Eye ViewFeb 22nd, 2019
Have you ever been trying to park somewhere and you're not sure how much room you have left in front of your vehicle? Or you're trying to get past someone and it's very narrow and you're not sure if you're going to scrap your rims against the curb?
Bird's Eye View is like a back-up camera but it takes it a step further and shows you a live 360-degree view from above your vehicle, showing you all of the areas surrounding.
How To Activate Toyota's Bird's Eye View
To activate bird's eye view, first start your vehicle. When you're sitting in the drivers seat, to the left of your steering wheel, below the dashboard will be a panel showing you 6 different buttons, click on the button that says "View". This will activate the 4 cameras and will engage your Bird's Eye View and show your vehicle on your display screen.
Reminder - this is not a snapshot of your vehicle, this is a live view surrounding your vehicle! Pedestrians, animals, shopping carts, etc will be detected when your bird's eye view is on.
How to Change Vehicle Colour on Bird's Eye View
When your Bird's Eye View is active on your display screen, there is a button available in the top left corner of your screen that will allow you to select the colour of vehicle you're driving.
Once you select a different colour choice, it takes about 30 seconds for the vehicle will remap itself with your surroundings and show the colour you've selected.
You can choose from white, silver, gray and red vehicles.
