Parking assistance, front

Op. No.: 36630 36687

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

The system is activated when speed is less than 15 km/h (9.3 mph). A signal indicates the distance to objects in front of the car. When an object is indicated, the volume of the radio/stereo is muted and a pulsating "buzzer tone" is heard from the car's front loudspeakers. The tone starts when the obstacle is approx. 80 cm (31.5 in) away and increases to a continuous tone when the distance is approx. 30 cm (11.8 in) away from the front bumper.

In order to differentiate between the front and rear systems, different tone frequencies are used and the sound comes from different speakers, front or rear.

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 system can produce "false" signals as a reaction to external sound sources with the same frequency as the system's sensors. Typical sources are the horn, wet tires on asphalt, air brakes and motorcycle exhaust pipes.

Manual shutdown of the system can be performed via the radio menu.
