2017 Honda Odyssey Mirror

Honda LaneWatch: In a large vehicle like a minivan, blind spots can pose serious danger. The Honda LaneWatch blind spot display system has been designed to combat it. This cutting-edge feature employs a camera mounted on the passenger-side exterior mirror to deliver live video of the lane adjacent to the Odyssey. If there is a biker, another vehicle, or any other obstacle on the right side of the Odyssey, the Honda LaneWatch display system will clearly show you and help you avoid blind spot–related collisions.

Blind Spot Information System: The Odyssey’s Blind Spot Information System further helps drivers avoid blind spot–related accidents. This system uses radar sensors to monitor for vehicles at the side and behind the Odyssey, helping drivers change lanes more safely. If another vehicle is detected in the Odyssey’s blind spot, this system issues warnings to let the driver know.

2017 Honda Odyssey Driving

Forward Collision Warning: The Odyssey’s Forward Collision Warning system is designed to detect other vehicles ahead of the Odyssey. If this system senses that the Odyssey is at risk of crashing into a detected vehicle, visual and audio alerts are issued to warn the driver.

2017 Honda Odyssey Traffic

Lane Departure Warning: The Odyssey’s high-tech Lane Departure Warning feature employs a small camera that is designed to detect lane markings on the roadway. If the system detects that the Odyssey is leaving its designated lane without the activation of the appropriate turn signal, the driver is warned with audio and visual alerts.
