First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

The ParkPilot uses ultraound sensors to determine the distance between the front and rear bumpers and an obstacle. Up to 6 ultrasound sensors for the ParkPilot are located in both the front Aand rear B bumpers   (arrows).

The intermittent and permanent acoustic warning signals for the front ParkPilot are of a higher pitch than those for the rear ParkPilot. This is a standard feature.

The warning signals can be adjusted in the infotainment system menu   .
