Rear parking assistance is an excellent system that warns of obstructions when you have limited space behind the car, e.g. with tight parking.
The system is activated when reverse gear is engaged. The radio's/stereo's sound level is muted and a pulsating "buzzer tone" starts to sound in the car's rear speakers when approx. 150 cm (4.9 feet) remain to the obstruction and becomes a constant tone when the obstruction is approx. 30 cm (12 in) from the rear bumper.
The kit consists of four sensors that are installed in the rear bumper, a control module, as well as wiring. The sensors are painted in the same colour as the car's bumper.
System may generate "false" signals as a reaction to external sound sources with the same frequency as the system's sensors. Typical sources are horns, wet tyres on asphalt, air brakes, and motorcycles' exhaust pipes. It is possible to deactivate the system via the menu in the radio display, e.g., when reversing with bicycle holder.
If Genuine Volvo trailer wiring is used, the system is deactivated automatically when driving with a trailer.
