Honda’s exclusive blind-spot monitoring system called LaneWatch is standard on all 2013 Honda Accord EX and above model sedans as well as Accord EX-L Coupes. It’s designed to help driver’s by improving visibility of the passenger-side roadway to the rear of the Accord. This will come in handy for parallel parking too.
The system features a camera located below the passenger-side mirror to display an expanded rear view of the passenger’s side roadway through the intelligent Multi-Information Display (i-MID). The image appears when the right-turn signal is activated or a button on the end of the stalk is pushed.
Ted Buck demonstrates how LaneWatch works as we take this Accord EX on the Highway in Ridgeland.
A button on the end of the turn signal lever activates a constant realtime display whether the turn signal has been turned on or not. The display includes guide lines that help you judge distances. The line closest to the vehicle indicates a distance of about 10 feet from the rear bumper. The second line is about 36 feet back and the 3rd about 78 Feet behind the car
The customizable camera setting feature allows the drive to choose whether to display guide lines or to prevent the system from displaying once the turn signal is activated, you choose. On Accord models with Navigation you can choose whether a next turn window Pops up when the lane watch display is on while on a calculated route.
To customize the settings press the display settings on a non navi model or press the settings button on Navi models, rotate the selector nob on the interface dial and select Camera Settings and press.

*LaneWatch is not a substitute for looking around and behind the car…so be sure to use your mirrors as well as look around and behind the vehicle before changing lanes.
