Park assist camera locations and surveillance areas*

The function can display a composite 360° view and separate views for each of the four cameras: rear, front, left or right camera view.

360° view*

P5-1617-Park Assist Camera 360, all camera views

The "field of vision" of the parking cameras with approximate coverage area.

The 360° view function activates all parking cameras, whereupon the four sides of the car are shown simultaneously in the centre display, which helps the driver to observe what is around the car when manoeuvring at slow speeds.

From the 360° view, each camera view can be activated separately:

  • Press the screen for the desired “field of vision” of the camera, e.g. on the surface in front of/above the front camera.
P5+6-1746 - Park Assist Camera, camera active

A camera symbol on the centre display's car symbol indicates which of the cameras is active.

If the car is also equipped with Park Assist System* then distance to detected obstacles is illustrated with fields in different colours.

The cameras can be activated automatically or manually.

Backwards

P5-1507-Park Assist Camera, rear view camera

The backwards-facing camera is fitted above the registration plate.

The backward-facing camera shows a wide area behind the car. For certain models, part of the bumper can be seen as well as the towbar in some cases.

Objects shown in the centre display may appear slightly tilted — this is normal.

Forwards

P5-1507-Park Assist Camera, location of forward parking camera

The forwards parking camera is located in the grille.

The front camera can be helpful on an exit road with limited visibility to the sides, e.g. when there are high hedges. It is active at speeds up to 25 km/h (16 mph) - following which, the front camera is switched off.

If the car does not reach 50 km/h (30 mph) and the speed falls below 22 km/h (14 mph) within 1 minute after the forward-facing camera has been extinguished, the camera is reactivated.

The sides

P5-1507-Park Assist Camera, side camera on door mirror

The side cameras are positioned in each door mirror.

The side cameras can show what is along each side of the car.
