Mazda 6 Owners Manual: Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) (Some models)

Mazda 6 Owners Manual / When Driving / i-ACTIVSENSE / Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) (Some models)

The Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) is designed to assist the driver in checking the area to the rear of the vehicle on both sides during lane changes by notifying the driver of the presence of vehicles approaching from the rear in an adjacent lane.

The Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) detects vehicles approaching from the rear while traveling in the forward direction at a speed of 10 km/h (6.3 mph) or faster and notifies the driver by turning on the Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) warning indicator light and displaying the vehicle detection screen (vehicles with multi-information display and active driving display).

If the turn signal lever is operated to signal a turn in the direction in which the Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) warning indicator light is illuminated while the approaching vehicle is detected, the Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) notifies the driver of possible danger by turning on the Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) warning indicator light, and by activating the warning sound and the warning screen indicator display (vehicles with multi-information display and active driving display).

The detection area on this system covers the driving lanes on both sides of the vehicle and from the rear part of the front doors to about 50 m (164 ft) behind the vehicle.


WARNING

Always check the surrounding area visually before making an actual lane change:

The system is only designed to assist you in checking for vehicles at your rear when making a lane change. Due to certain limitations with the operation of this system, the Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) warning indicator light, the warning sound and the warning screen indicator display may not activate or they might be delayed even though a vehicle is in an adjacent driving lane. Always make it your responsibility as a driver to check the rear.
