Park assist lines and fields for the park assist camera*

Updated 1/14/2020

The Park Assist Camera indicates the position of the car in relation to its surroundings by displaying lines on the camera image.

Examples of how the park assist lines can be displayed for the driver.

Park assist lines show the intended route for the car's external dimensions with the current steering wheel angle - this facilitates parallel parking, reversing into tight spaces and when connecting a trailer.

The lines on the screen are projected as if they were at ground level behind the car and respond directly to steering wheel movements, showing the driver the path the car will take - also when the car is turning.

These park assist lines include the car's most protruding parts, e.g. towbar, door mirrors and corners.

Note

  • When reversing with a trailer which is not connected electrically to the car, the lines on the display show the route the car will take - not the trailer.
  • The screen shows no lines when a trailer is connected electrically to the car's electrical system.

Important

Remember that when rear camera view is selected, the centre display only shows the area behind the car. Keep an eye on the sides and front of the car when turning the steering wheel while reversing.

The same applies vice versa - note what happens to the rear parts of the car when the front camera view is selected.

Note that the guide lines show the shortest route. Therefore, pay extra attention to the car's sides so that they do not go against/over something when the steering wheel is turned when driving forward or that the front sweeps against/over something when the steering wheel is turned when reversing.

With the 360° view, park assist lines are shown behind, in front of and at the side of the car (depending on the direction of travel):

  • When driving forwards: Front lines
  • When reversing: Side lines and reversing lines.

If front camera, reversing camera or side camera has been selected, park assist lines are displayed without regard to the car’s direction of travel.

The camera can facilitate connecting up to a trailer by showing an assist line representing the towbar's intended "path" to the trailer.

Press Towbar (1).

The assist line for the intended "path" of the towbar is shown. At the same time the car's park assist lines are extinguished.

Press Zoom (2) when a more precise manoeuvring is required.

The camera view zooms in.

Assist lines for both the car and the towbar cannot be shown at the same time.
