Activate the system manually if you are driving forwards and would like the system to give a warning as you approach potential obstacles, for instance when parking.

The measuring range of the sensors in the front and rear bumpers starts at approximately:

Warning beeps

Warning beeps

The warning beeps are produced by sound boxes. The volume and pitch of the beeps can be adjusted in the MMI

Mute function

An acoustic proximity warning is cancelled when you apply the parking brake or move the selector lever of the automatic gearbox to position P. However, the system remains active. The warning beeps will start again as soon as you release the parking brake or move the selector lever out of position P if the system has detected an obstacle.

Reversing/driving forwards

When the vehicle is reversing/driving forwards, the system starts to beep if it registers an obstacle within its detection range (see above). The warnings will beep increasingly rapidly as the vehicle approaches the obstacle.

When the vehicle is less than approx. 0.30 m away from the obstacle the warning tone will sound continuously. From here at the latest, the driver should then not reverse/drive forwards any further.

The volume of the warning beeps will be gradually reduced after about 4 seconds if the vehicle remains at a constant distance from a detected obstacle (it will not be reduced if the obstacle is closer than 0.30 m). The warnings will then return to the normal volume if the vehicle approaches the detected obstacle again.

Parking

If the parking manoeuvre involves shunting backwards and forwards, the warning sound will be switched off temporarily while you change gear. The proximity graphic will, however, still be displayed on the MMI screen. The warnings will then return to the normal volume if the vehicle approaches the detected obstacle again.

Graphic display

The segments in the MMI display indicate the distance between the vehicle and an obstacle. The number of segments shown depends on the obstacle in front of or behind the vehicle. The closer the vehicle gets to the obstacle the closer the segments move towards the vehicle in the graphic,. At the latest when the penultimate segment is highlighted the vehicle has reached the danger (collision) zone. The driver should then not move backwards/ forwards any further The graphic display in the MMI screen can be switched off. The acoustic.

The graphic display in the MMI screen can be switched off. The acoustic proximity warning will, however, remain activated.

The graphic display will be deactivated as soon as you press a function selector button on the MMI control console. The graphic display in the MMI screen can also be switched on again manually using the switch console please refer to the MMI Operating Manual.. For more information on the MMI control console please refer to the MMI Operating Manual.

Reversing camera (Rear View)

The picture supplied by the reversing camera also includes orientation lines and area markings which are projected onto the image to assist you when parking. The red line in the picture, fig. 156/page 143, shows the collision zone. From here at the latest, the driver should not reverse any further If your vehicle is near an obstacle, the proximity graphic will also appear in.

If your vehicle is near an obstacle, the proximity graphic will also appear in the reversing camera image. This superimposed graphic helps the driver to localise the critical area of the vehicle.

Х The sensors have blind spots in which obstacles are not registered. WARNING

Х The sensors have blind spots in which obstacles are not registered.
It is particularly important to ensure that there are no small children or animals near the vehicle, as the sensors may not always be able to detect them.
Х The parking aid cannot replace the full concentration of the driver. The driver is always responsible for safety during parking and other manoeuvres. Always keep a close watch on the area around the vehicle.
Х Please note that low obstacles detected by the system may no longer be registered by the sensors as the car moves closer, so the system will not give any further warning. Certain kinds of obstacles (such as wire fences, chains, thin painted posts or trailer draw bars, etc.) may not always be detected by the system (accident risk).
