Park Assist*

Updated 7/23/2018

Parking assistance assists the driver when manoeuvring in tight spaces by indicating the distance to obstacles by acoustic signals combined with graphics on the centre display.

Screen view showing obstacle zones and sensor sectors.

The centre display shows an overview of the relationship between the car and detected obstacles.

The marked sector indicates the location of the obstacle. The closer to the car symbol is to a selected sector box, the shorter the distance between the car and a detected obstacle.

The shorter the distance to the obstacle, the faster the signal sounds. Other sound from the audio system is muted automatically.

When the distance forward or backwards is less than 30 cm, the tone is continuous and the active sensor's field nearest the car is filled in. If obstacles are detected within the distance for continuous tone both behind and in front of the car, then the tone sounds alternately from the loudspeakers.

The volume of the parking assistance signal can be adjusted while the signal is sounding by means of the [>II] knob on the centre console. Adjustment can also be performed in the top view's Settings menu option.

Warning

  • Parking assistance does not relinquish the driver's own responsibility during parking.
  • The sensors have blind spots where obstacles cannot be detected.
  • Be aware of e.g. people or animals near the car.

Backwards

The sensors for reverse are activated if the car rolls backward without a gear engaged or when the gear lever is moved to reverse position.

The measuring range starts approx. 1.5 metres behind the car.

When reversing with a hitched trailer, parking assistance backward is deactivated automatically.

Note

When reversing with e.g. a trailer or bike carrier on the towbar - without Volvo genuine trailer wiring - parking assistance may need to be switched off manually in order that the sensors do not react to them.

Along the sides

Parking assistance side sensors are activated automatically when the engine is started. They are active at speeds below 10 km/h (6 mph).

The measuring range to the sides starts at approx. 0.3 metres from the obstacle. The acoustic signal for obstacles comes from the side loudspeakers.

Forwards

The front parking assistance sensors are activated automatically when the engine is started. The front sensors are active at speeds below 10 km/h (6 mph).

The measuring range starts approx. 0.8 metres in front of the car. The acoustic signal for obstructions is only active when the car is in motion except when the car is very close to an obstruction (within 30 cm, with constant tone).

Note

Parking assistance is deactivated when the parking brake is applied or P mode is selected in a car with an automatic gearbox.

Important

When auxiliary lamps are fitted: Remember that these must not obscure the sensors - the auxiliary lamps may then be perceived as an obstacle.
