I was going through the Ascent brochure and saw there is a new feature in Subaru Eyesight called 'Eyesight Assist Monitor'. It says the system will flashes the alerts on to your windshield. something like heads up display but for only Eyesight alerts?
Does anybody have any idea or saw any demo of it?
I searched in youtube, but nothing came regarding this feature. I was hoping someone here can shed some lights on it.

Hmmmmm, I have not seen anything on this will have to do some investigating now, maybe Carl will chime in if he knows anything about it.


I would love to have straight up heads up display, its about the only thing I miss about my Audi.

Ok, I found the below in cars101
2018 Subaru WRX and STI research specs, options, photos, prices, details.

Looks like it was introduced in 2018 WRX. It will flashes the lights on to the windshield, but nothing like heads up display. Only lights, Red, green & yellow.
I really thought its something big and they could do better than that or just shouldn't have included that boring feature. It kinda sucks IMO.

yea that will be kinda annoying for me since I can't seem to keep the car in my lane sometimes.... Although I live in the south with tiny curvy back roads.

It's brilliant. Don't have to look away from the road to know adaptive cruise sees the car in front of me, or that I'm crossing a line in the middle of the sleepy night.

Yes, it's helpful. We also have Forster '16 w/Eyesight and no monitor like this.

Green LED indicating a lock on the car in front it helpful.


Yellow lane indicator (and red) is ok (but I can live without out it). I know when I am out of my lane or about to run into something (plus there are sounds for this anyway).

It's actually not all that visible during the bright sunlight - see it better in lower light. It's not annoying and I do like the green solid light showing the adaptive cruise lock. The lock is also shown on the dash display as well as the default screen on the top console display, so even without the green LED, you could get that info.

If you have it on and it notices you "nodding off" it will give you an alert & flash on windshield. This will be VERY nice to have when traveling long distances on the interstate. This happens "within" your lane of travel - it's not the same as the one that "sounds" when you "go over the line"



Lane Sway Warning Lane Sway Warning works at speeds of approximately 38 mph or greater. It detects repetitive or unusual side-to-side vehicle movement within the driver’s lane of travel that is usually indicative of a drowsy driver.

Ascent EyeSight Customizing Functions: (page 116 EyeSight manual)
I have experienced Toyota’s “Dynamic Cruise” on my 2010 Sienna for these past 8 or so years. I would Never purchase a car without the adaptive cruise feature. My Ascent has not arrived yet, however, I have been reading the manuals. I would like to hear from those of you that have received your Ascent about the “Cruise Control Acceleration Characteristics” as listed on page 116 of the Ascent EyeSight manual.
Have you adjusted the acceleration Characteristics?
If yes, what are your thoughts and experiences?
If you have tried the other settings… I encourage you do so.
The settings listed are:
Lv 1 (Eco), Lv 2 (comfort), Lv 3 (Standard) factory default). Lv 4 (Dynamic)
My Sienna has only one setting that can be very irritating. Scenario: When you have set the cruise to 55 MPH and you are following a car that is going 65 and that car moves the Sienna gears down for a very fast acceleration wasting fuel. I am hoping the settings on the Ascent will alleviate the issue. Anyway I would like very much to hear your input with this issue.

Just got my Ascent yesterday and drove it home from the dealer at night (200 miles). Ok with the line sensors - they don’t come on much. The green LED for the cruise (along with the beep) is very annoying and is way too bright, ruining night vision. Glad to hear there is an off setting or I will be taping it!

I like them. It makes it easy to know what the car is doing without looking down.

The green light for ACC car tracking is handy.

But the best feature was when I wasn't paying attention and all 4 red lights flashed as an accident was imminent. I slammed the brakes and avoided a rear-end collision!

When you read about it, it seems trite, but when you actually use it, it's much better than it sounds!
