uuHonda Sensing®uTraffic Sign Recognition System  
Traffic Sign Recognition System  
Reminds you of road sign information, such as the current speed limit your vehicle  
has just passed through, showing it on the gauge.  
1Traffic Sign Recognition System  
Not all signs may be displayed, but any signs posted  
on roadsides should not be ignored. The system does  
not work on the designated traffic signs of all the  
countries you travel, nor in all situations.  
Do not rely too much on the system. Always drive at  
speeds appropriate for the road conditions.  
How the System Works  
When the camera located behind the rearview mirror captures traffic signs while  
driving, the system displays the ones that are recognized as designated for your  
vehicle. The sign icon will be displayed until the vehicle reaches a predetermined  
time and distance.  
If the system does not detect any traffic signs while you are driving, the sign icon will  
not be displayed.  
Never apply a film or attach any objects to the  
windshield that could obstruct the camera’s field of  
vision and cause the system to operate abnormally.  
Scratches, nicks, and other damage to the windshield  
within the camera’s field of vision can cause the  
system to operate abnormally. If this occurs, we  
recommend that you replace the windshield with a  
genuine Honda replacement windshield. Making even  
minor repairs within the camera’s field of vision or  
installing an aftermarket replacement windshield may  
also cause the system to operate abnormally. After  
replacing the windshield, have a dealer recalibrate the  
camera. Proper calibration of the camera is necessary  
for the system to operate properly.  
The sign icon also may switch to another one, or disappear when:  
The end of speed limit or other designated limit is detected.  
You make a turn with a turn signal at an intersection.  
You can read about handling information for the  
camera equipped with this system.

To help reduce the likelihood that high interior  
temperatures will cause the camera’s sensing system  
to shut off, when parking, find a shady area or face  
the front of the vehicle away from the sun. If you use  
a reflective sun shade, do not allow it to cover the  
camera housing.  
Covering the camera can concentrate heat on it.  
If your vehicle exceeds the detected speed limit, an  
icon representing the speed limit sign for the current  
area will blink in the display.  
2 Settings* P. 129  
2 Customized Features P. 359  
The system’s ability to accurately notify the driver of  
the speed limit is dependent on certain conditions  
such as the units displayed on the traffic sign as well  
as the speed and direction of travel of the vehicle. In  
some cases, the system may display false warnings or  
other inaccurate information.  
2 Traffic Sign Recognition System Conditions  
and Limitations P. 538  
The unit for speed limits (mph or km/h) varies from  
country to country. Just after entering a country  
whose unit differs to the one of the country from  
which you came, Traffic Sign Recognition System  
may not work correctly.
