Volkswagen Golf Owners Manual: Introduction

This chapter contains information on the following subjects:

 → Operating ParkPilot  

 → Acoustic and optical ParkPilot signals  

 → ParkPilot menu  

 → Vehicle path display  

 → Towing a trailer  

The ParkPilot assists the driver when manoeuvring and parking.

The ultrasound sensors in the bumpers transmit and receive ultrasound waves. The system uses the time difference between the ultrasonic waves (i.e. between the transmission and reflection from obstacles and the point of reception) to continuously calculate the distance between the bumper and the obstacle.

Additional information and warnings:

WARNING

The ParkPilot is no substitute for full concentration on the part of the driver.

WARNING

Automatic activation of the ParkPilot only occurs at very low speeds. An inappropriate driving style can cause accidents and serious injuries.

NOTICE

NOTICE

If an ultrasound sensor fails, the corresponding area of the ultrasound sensor cluster is switched off and cannot be reactivated until the fault has been rectified. Consult a qualified workshop in the event of a system fault. Volkswagen recommends using a Volkswagen dealership for this purpose.

Volkswagen recommends that drivers practise using the ParkPilot in a traffic-calmed area or car park to allow them to familiarise themselves with the system and its functions.
