If you’re like many Asheville-area drivers exploring the safety tech offered on vehicles in the new Honda lineup, you’ve probably asked yourself, “What is Honda LaneWatch and how does it work?” The short answer is that it helps drivers stay informed about what’s happening on the passenger side of their vehicle. Available on many new Honda vehicles, Honda LaneWatch is easy to operate and makes changing lanes a breeze. Learn more about Honda LaneWatch in this guide from Apple Tree Honda and see how it can make your Fletcher commute safer.

What is Honda LaneWatch and How Does It Work?

Honda LaneWatch uses a camera installed below the passenger-side mirror to relay a real-time image to the central display screen, providing a clear view of the area alongside the right-hand side of your vehicle. You won’t have to turn your head and strain to get a decent look, so making lane changes is easier and safer thanks to Honda LaneWatch. Of course, you should always remember that LaneWatch is meant to enhance your safety, but is not a substitute for responsible driving.

How to Use Honda LaneWatch

To use LaneWatch, all you need to do is activate the right turn signal. The system and the camera will power on automatically, and an image of the right side area of your vehicle will appear on the central display screen. You can also activate LaneWatch by pressing the button on the end of the turn signal control lever. By pressing the button twice you can deactivate the system. If you want to change the LaneWatch settings just follow these steps:

  • Select Settings on the HOME screen.
  • Choose Camera.
  • Choose LaneWatch.
  • Make your preferred changes.
  • Press BACK to exit.
