What is Honda Blind Spot Monitoring?

With the Honda Blind Spot Information system, merging can be done with confidence. The system uses sensors on your Honda that detect vehicles in the next lane and alerts you with signs in your mirrors or audible alerts if you turn your blinker on. While you should continue to double-check your blind spots when driving, this system allows you to be confident as you move.

You can easily customize alerts to best suit your needs. Controls depend on your infotainment so if your Honda has a 9-inch screen, follow these steps:

  • Click on the vehicle settings icon on the home screen
  • Press driver assist system set up
  • Click Blind Spot info
  • Now, you can select audio or visual alert

If you have a 7-inch infotainment screen, follow these instructions:

  • Use the control wheel to navigate to settings
  • Scroll until driver assist system setup
  • Select Blind Spot Information
  • Select your alerts based on your preference

Once you have set your preferences your Blind Spot Information System is ready to go! If a vehicle is detected, the icon will flash or you will hear a beep letting you know it is not safe to merge yet. While this system helps elevate safety it is not a replacement for attentive driving.
