360 Camera Front proximity warning?

Hi everyone,

I have the 360 camera option on a 2017 Sorento SXL. The user manual, and in-vehicle settings mention both rear AND front proximity warnings. I have the option turned on in the settings, and the rear warning works, but I've never gotten a front proximity warning, despite experimenting with pulling up close to a car, and having people walk in front of the vehicle.

Have any of you with this option gotten a front proximity warning? If so, any tips or ideas?

Thanks!

There are several threads on this here.
It works, just not the way you expect

The search on the side isn’t so great, can you link to any of those threads or give me a suggestion on what to search for?

There are a lot of results for FCW, but the feature I’m talking about is for the 360 camera warnings specifically.

Or, if you do know how it works, can you let me know more details?

Thank you!

This forum search function stinks.

I use Google with this URL and key words, but that didn't come up with anything on your query.

Quality and not quantity counts.

I did a pretty thorough search, and I’m thinking that it may just be left over from other international builds in the manual. There are definitely no sensors up front, and no warnings to speak of when I get close to anything, even though it’s mentioned in the settings and in the manual.

Still hoping that somebody can tell me I’m wrong and show me how it works, but not holding my breath

There are no front sensors (see rear bumper for 4 sensor circles) until 2017 models. 2018/2019 onwards they got them.

We have a 2019 SX (no 360 camera) and the front sensors only seem to work when an object is straight ahead. When we pull into the garage, we angle towards one corner, back up, and then straight in. The thing only seems to beep when as we pull straight in and is quiet when we aim towards the corner of the garage.

I had it go off three times, once it actually hit the brakes.
I don't think it will prevent a collision, only mitigate it.

I have a 2018 SXL and it doesn't have front sensors here in Canada. I know in my old 2018 Sportage it had front sensors and rear sensors. What I did notice though they added front proximity sensors in the 2019 models from what it looks like in the picture I added.

Pretty sure the front collision cameras are linked to the enhanced cruise control settings. Mine works when all of that is engaged and I approach an obstacle on the road...
