A driver assistance system includes a global-positioning system generating an output indicative of the current geographical location of the vehicle equipped with the driver assistance system, a forward facing camera, and a video display screen. The forward facing camera captures video images forward of the vehicle as the equipped vehicle travels along a route of travel, and the video display screen displays the captured video images as the equipped vehicle travels along the route. The video display screen is viewable by a driver of the vehicle when the driver is normally operating the vehicle. The driver assistance system, responsive to image processing of the video images and responsive to the output of the global-positioning system, generates a graphic overlay on the displayed video images that assists the driver's driving task as the vehicle travels along the route.
