Parking and maneuvering
Fig. 125 Center display: distance display

If the sensors detect an obstacle, audible and visual signals will warn you.

Visual warnings

The visual warnings in the center display help you to detect the critical vehicle area and to estimate the distance to an obstacle.

Red segments (1) show detected obstacles that are in your vehicle's path. The red lines (2) mark the expected direction of travel based on the steering angle. A white segment (3) indicates a detected obstacle that is outside of the vehicle's path. The closer your vehicle comes to the obstacle, the closer the segments will move to the vehicle.

The collision area has been reached when the next to last segment is displayed. Obstacles in the collision area, including those outside of the vehicle's path, are shown in red. Do not continue driving farther.

Audio signals

The closer your vehicle gets to a detected obstacle, the shorter the time between the audible signals.

A continuous tone sounds when an obstacle is less than approximately 1 foot (0.30 m) away from the front or rear of the vehicle. A continuous tone sounds when an obstacle is less than approximately 0.7 feet (0.20 m) away from the sides* of the vehicle. Do not continue driving forward or in reverse.

Adjusting the volume

You can adjust the volume to your preferences.

The settings depend on the vehicle equipment.

Possible settings:

Front volume - Volume for the front and side* area.

Rear volume - Volume for the rear area.

Entertainment fader - The volume of the audio/ video source is Lowered when the parking aid is activated.

The new level is demonstrated briefly* when the volume is adjusted.
