USING THE PARKING AID

WARNING

Make sure the relevant safety warnings and cautions have been read and understood before operating the parking features. See PARKING FEATURES SAFETY.

NOTES

The sensors must be kept clean to maintain accuracy and performance.

NOTES

If a trailer is connected to an approved trailer socket, the rear parking sensors are disabled. If 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.

NOTES

The parking aid pop-up screen displays when a possible threat is detected.

NOTES

The parking aid settings pop-up menu is only accessible when the parking aid feature is enabled, and the parking aid pop-up screen is displayed.

  1. Settings icon: Touch to select the SETTINGS pop-up menu. Touch Parking aid settings to access the PARKING AID SETTINGS screen.

  2. Parking aid icon: Touch to activate the parking aid system.

  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. Camera icon: Touch to select the cameras feature. See REAR CAMERA and SURROUND CAMERA SYSTEM.

  6. Volume icon: Touch to lower the volume of the warning tones for the current parking aid maneuver. See PARKING AID VOLUME.

The parking aid system assists the driver while maneuvering the vehicle at low speed in confined spaces. The touchscreen displays object tracking along the front, sides, and rear of the vehicle, when active. 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 360° parking aid monitoring along the vehicle's sides, thereby, creating a virtual detection zone.

The parking aid system also detects low objects, e.g., curbs in the front and rear detection zones. The curbs are tracked as the vehicle approaches, even when the curbs are no longer seen by the sensors.

NOTES

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

While the vehicle is passing an object within its sensor range, the vehicle's integrated systems calculate its steering trajectory. The touchscreen displays the trajectory lines (3) in the parking aid monitored area. The steering trajectory lines indicate the projected path of the vehicle, based on the current steering wheel position.

To configure the appearance of the trajectory lines:

  1. Select the settings icon (1) to access the PARKING AID SETTINGS pop-up menu.

  2. Select Trajectory lines ON or OFF.

NOTES

The trajectory lines selection is retained after the vehicle's electrical system is restarted.

If a detected object is calculated to be a collision threat, it is displayed as colored blocks. The distance from a collision threat is color coded: yellow to amber to red, with red being the closest. Other detected objects that are not a collision threat are displayed as gray blocks.

NOTES

When the parking aid system is active, the system only provides information of obstacles when a threat is detected.

A warning tone sounds, 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. The warning tone sounds from the area in which a collision threat has been detected.

While the vehicle is stationary, the sensors for the parking aid system 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 these situations, ! is displayed on the touchscreen in these virtual detection zones.

To manually enable the parking aid system:

  1. Touch the parking aid icon (2). The icon illuminates while the parking aid system is enabled.

  2. Touch the icon 2 again to disable the system. The LED extinguishes.

The parking aid system also activates if Reverse (R) or Neutral (N) is selected.

The parking aid system can be set to activate automatically for when:

  • The vehicle’s speed falls below 6 mph (10 km/h).

  • Drive (D) is selected.

To enable the auto on feature:

  1. Select the settings icon (1) to access the PARKING AID SETTINGS pop-up menu.

  2. Select Automatic PDC ON.

NOTES

The auto on feature selection is retained after the vehicle's electrical system is restarted.
