USING THE PARKING AID

WARNING

The sensors for the parking aid system do not detect moving objects, such as children and animals, until they are dangerously close. Responsibility remains the driver's to drive with due care and attention during low speed maneuvers.

CAUTION

The sensors for the parking aid system may not detect some obstructions. For example, narrow posts or small objects close to the ground. Objects above sensor level may not be detected, e.g., when approaching a flatbed truck the protruding part of the flatbed will not be detected.

CAUTION

Accessories that are fitted to the front or rear of the vehicle, particular care must be taken when using the parking aid. Accessories that are mounted in a position where it obstructs operation of a sensor or sensors will only detect the distance from the bumper to the accessory. The accessory then displays as an obstacle. Any obstacle beyond the detected accessory may not be indicated on the touch screen display.

Parking aid features.

  1. Parking aid icon: Touch to activate the Parking aid feature.

  2. Settings icon: Touch to select the Parking aid settings menu.

  3. Vehicle steering trajectory lines: Projected reversing path based on the current steering wheel position.

  4. Parking aid sensor detection zones:

    Gray blocks indicate objects detected that do not pose a threat i.e. not in a collision path with the vehicle.

    Colored blocks indicate objects detected that pose collision threats.

  5. Cameras icon: Touch to select the Cameras feature.

  6. Volume icon: Touch to lower the volume of the beeps for the parking aid system.

NOTES

When a trailer is connected to a Jaguar Land Rover approved trailer socket, the rear parking sensors are disabled. When the trailer's electrical plug is not connected to the socket, or a non-approved towing system is fitted, the parking sensors do not operate as intended.

The parking aid system automatically activates when Reverse (R) gear or Neutral (N) gear is selected.

The parking aid system assists the driver while maneuvering the vehicle at low speed in confined spaces. When active, object tracking along the front, sides, and rear of the vehicle, is displayed on the touch screen. The front, side, and outer rear sensors monitor a fixed distance around the vehicle. The inner rear sensors monitor a greater distance at the rear of the vehicle. The four side sensors provide the 360° parking aid monitoring along the vehicle's sides, creating a virtual detection zone.

NOTES

The 360° parking aid feature is not available in some markets.

While the vehicle is passing an object within its sensor range, the vehicle's integrated systems calculate its trajectory. The trajectory is displayed on the touch screen in the parking aid monitored area. When a detected object is calculated to be a collision threat, it is displayed as colored blocks. A warning tone is given, which increases in speed as the vehicle approaches the object. The tone becomes continuous when the object is within 12 in (300 mm) of the vehicle.

Other detected objects are displayed as gray blocks.

While the vehicle is stationary, the sensors for 360° parking aid do not detect objects or people approaching from the side. Also, at vehicle start-up, the vehicle has no sensor information about side objects or people. In both of these situations, ! is displayed on the touch screen in these virtual detection zones.

NOTES

At vehicle start-up, the front sensors may not detect low objects, even if they were detected during the original parking maneuver.

When a forward gear is selected, the sensors remain active until the vehicle’s speed reaches 10 mph (16 km/h), at which point the system is disabled.

To manually enable the front and side sensors while moving in a forward direction, touch the parking aid icon (1). The icon illuminates while the parking aid system is enabled. Touch the icon again to disable. The LED extinguishes.

NOTES

The parking aid system is disabled if the vehicle's speed exceeds 10 mph (16 km/h).

NOTES

The sensors must be kept clean to maintain accuracy and performance. See SENSORS AND CAMERAS.
