1. A vision display system for a vehicle, said vision display system comprising:

  • a rear backup camera disposed at a rear portion of a vehicle equipped with said vision display system;

    said rear backup camera having a field of view exterior and rearward of the equipped vehicle;

    a display device comprising a video display screen disposed in the interior cabin of the equipped vehicle and viewable by a driver of the equipped vehicle, said video display screen having a diagonal dimension of at least 5 inches;

    wherein said display device undergoes initialization at initial ignition on of the equipped vehicle;

    wherein, upon an engine of the equipped vehicle being started after initial ignition on of the equipped vehicle, initialization of said display device is delayed or overridden upon shifting of a vehicle transmission of the equipped vehicle into reverse gear to commence a reversing maneuver in order to give priority to display by said video display screen of video images derived from image data captured by said rear backup camera during that reversing maneuver;

    wherein, within two seconds of that shifting of the vehicle transmission of the equipped vehicle into reverse gear, said display device displays on said video display screen video images derived from image data captured by said rear backup camera;

    wherein video images derived from image data captured by said rear backup camera are displayed by said video display screen for no more than 10 seconds after the vehicle transmission of the equipped vehicle is shifted out of reverse gear; and

    wherein said vision display system prohibits display by said video display screen of other than video images derived from image data captured by said rear backup camera upon shifting of the vehicle transmission into reverse gear to commence a reversing maneuver until the reversing maneuver is completed unless, after the shifting of the vehicle transmission into reverse, a user of the equipped vehicle operates a user input to change to another video image derived from image data captured by said rear backup camera.
