    While driving my newly delivered MS, I've noticed that there are (what appears to be) depictions of "radar waves" emanating from the front and back of the car's avatar on the instrument panel. I assume that these emanations denote other autos and obstacles on the road, but what I don't understand is that sometimes these emanations are white while sometimes they are amber. What is the difference? TIA

    Ultrasonics. The redder, the closer the detected object is.
