Parking assistance, front is an excellent system that warns of obstructions when you have limited space in front of the car, e.g. with parallel parking.

The system is activated when the speed is less than 15 km/h (10 mph). A signal indicates distance to objects in front of the car. When an object is indicates, the radio's/stereo's sound level is muted and a pulsating "buzzer tone" comes from the car's front speakers.

The tone starts to sound when approx. 80 cm (30 in) remains to an obstacle and becomes a constant tone when the distance is approx. 30 cm (12 in) from the front bumper. To differentiate between front and rear systems, different frequencies are used for the tone and the sound comes from different speakers, front or back.

The kit consists of wiring and four sensors that are installed just about invisibly in the front bumper. The sensors are painted in the same colour as the car's bumper.

The switch below makes it easy to turn the system off, which can be useful as the system can sometimes 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 motorcycle exhaust pipes.
