System malfunction

When Surround View Monitor is not working properly, or the screen flickers, or the camera image does not display normally, we recommend that the system be inspected by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.

Limitations of the system

  • When the vehicle is stopped for a long time in winter or when the vehicle is parked in an indoor parking lot, the exhaust fumes may temporarily blur the image.
  • The screen may be displayed abnormally, and an icon will appear at the top left side of the screen under the following circumstances:
    -- The liftgate is opened
    -- The driver or front passenger door is opened
    -- The side view mirror is folded


  • ALWAYS look around your vehicle to make sure there are no objects or obstacles before moving the vehicle. What you see on the screen may differ from the actual vehicle’s location.
  • The image shown on the screen may differ from the actual distance of the object. Make sure to directly check the vehicle's surroundings for safety.
  • When the rear view is displayed while driving, an icon () appears at the top right side of the infotainment system screen to inform the driver the rear view is being displayed. Do not be confused with the front wide view image.
  • Surround View Monitor is designed to be used on a flat surface. Therefore, if used on roads with different heights such as curbs and speed bumps, the image in the screen my not look correct.
  • Always keep the camera lens clean. If the lens is covered with foreign material, it may adversely affect camera performance and Surround View Monitor may not operate normally.
