 Blind Spot Monitoring The Blind Spot Monitoring system’s got your back. It uses radar to monitor the space in your blind spots. It can turn on a alert if it notices something in the presence of your blind spot. If your turn signal is activated when the vehicle detects something in your blind spot, it can also sound an alert. If you’ve a towed with a system like this in the past – you may have experienced that this type of detection may not accurate when towing something behind you. With the enhancements of this system, you can actually use the Trailer Detection mode and select trailer length or use auto mode to let your truck automatically compensate for the trailer you’re towing behind you. The blind spot warning system then accounts for the combined length of the truck and trailer, allowing you to drive with confidence.
