Park assist camera - settings

Updated 7/23/2018

Parking camera is an auxiliary system, which is activated when the reverse gear is selected.

Activate switched-off camera

If the camera function is switched off when reverse gear is selected, it is activated in the following way:

  • Press CAM - the screen shows the current camera view.

Change setting

The default setting is that the camera is activated when reverse gear is selected.

The settings for the parking camera can be changed when the screen shows a camera view:

  1. Press OK/MENU when a camera view is shown - the screenchanges to a menu with various options.
  2. Turn to reach the desired option with TUNE.
  3. Highlight the option by pressing OK/MENU once and go back out with EXIT.

Towbar

The camera can be used to advantage when hitching a trailer. A park assist line for the towbar's intended "trajectory" toward the trailer can be shown on the screen - exactly as for the "wheel tracks".

A choice can be made between showing the "wheel tracks" or the towbar's trajectory - both options cannot be shown simultaneously.

  1. Press OK/MENU when a camera view is shown.
  2. Turn to reach the Tow bar trajectory guide line option with TUNE.
  3. Highlight the option by pressing OK/MENU once and go back out with EXIT.

Zoom

If precise manoeuvring is required then the camera view can be zoomed in:

  • Press CAM or turn TUNE- repeated press/turn changes back to the normal view.

If more options are available, they are in a loop - press/turn until the desired camera view is shown.

Automatic zoom

In cars with Parking assistance and towbar, Automatic zoom is also available as an option in the camera menu. With this option selected, the camera zooms into the towbar automatically when the car approaches an object/trailer.

See the earlier heading "Change setting" for how a menu option is activated.
