Key
  and   Meaning
Scanned area behind the vehicle.
Scanned area in front of the vehicle.
Scanned area to the side of the vehicle (depending on the vehicle equipment level).
System fault in the scanned area.
The yellow segment represents an obstacle in the vehicle’s path.
The red segment represents an obstacle located in the vehicle’s collision area.
The grey segment represents an obstacle outside of the vehicle's path.

When the factory-fitted infotainment system is switched on, the areas to the front, rear and side of the vehicle that are scanned by ultrasound sensors are shown on the screen  . The positions of potential obstacles are displayed relative to the vehicle  .

The vehicle must be moved a few metres forwards or backwards in order to show the entire area around the vehiclea)  . The missing areas are then scanned and the area around the vehicle is calculated.

Acoustic signals and screen

Acoustic signals are given when the vehicle approaches an obstacle located in the range of the ultrasound sensors. An intermittent acoustic warning is given if there is sufficient distance between the vehicle and an obstacle. The shorter the distance, the shorter the intervals. The acoustic warning will sound continuously if the obstacle is very close.

If you continue to drive the vehicle closer to the obstacle despite the continuous acoustic warning, the system will no longer be able to measure the distance.

The graphic on the screen displays the scanned areas in several segments. The closer the vehicle drives towards an obstacle, the closer the segment will move to the vehicle in the display. The collision area has been reached when the penultimate segment is displayed, if not before. Do not drive on!

The yellow segments may turn grey if an obstacle ends up outside of the vehicle's path due to a steering input   .

When there is an imminent risk of collision in the front area of the vehicle, the acoustic signals are sounded at the front. When there is a risk of imminent collision in the rear area of the vehicle, the acoustic signals are sounded at the rear.

Acoustic signals are only sounded for those areas that are displayed on the infotainment system screen.

Things to note about the ParkPilot in the area around the vehiclea)

The scanned area along the side of the vehicle is automatically hidden in the following situations:

WARNING

Do not allow the images shown on the screen to distract you from the traffic around you.

NOTICE

Failure to observe the illuminated text messages can lead to the vehicle being damaged.

It can take a few seconds before the area scanned by the sensors is displayed on the screen of the factory-fitted infotainment system.

a) The area around the vehicle is not shown in vehicles with 4 ultrasound sensors in each bumper, front or rear.

b) The distance range for the constant tone to the rear of the vehicle is slightly larger for vehicles with a factory-fitted towing bracket.
