So that you not only look forward to every journey in your BMW but the parking as well, intelligent park assistance systems are now available from BMW ConnectedDrive. Your BMW helps you in every parking situation and makes the manoeuvring easier, faster and effortless.
Rear View Camera
With the Rear View Camera you have everything conveniently in sight at the back too. A wide-angle lens depicts every obstacle in fine detail on the Control Display in colour and from the optimum perspective. Interactive lane lines indicate whether the parking space is large enough for the vehicle and make the actual parking operation easier. When you’re manoeuvring with a trailer, too, the Rear View Camera provides support via the extended zoom function. So you’ll never overlook anything again.
Relaxed parking. The Park Assistant makes everything easy – even the search for a suitable parking space: Up to a speed of 35 km/h and a maximum distance of 1.5 m to the row of parked cars at the side, the ultrasonic sensors of your BMW measure potential parking spots, which the system then displays to you. Simply select a spot and keep pressing the Park Assistant switch – your BMW then selects the gear on its own, guides the steering and automatically accelerates or brakes. During the search for a spot and the parking manoeuvre, all relevant information is shown on the Control Display.
A new way of looking at things: Surround View gives you a 270-degree all-round panorama view. It considerably improves vision, particularly when driving in and out of difficult entrances or parking in tight spaces. That is made possible by a combination of cameras in the exterior mirrors and a Rear View camera. In addition, two digital cameras on the left and right at the front of the vehicle capture the situation at the side and transmit it onto the Control Display. This allows you to see crossing traffic approaching in good time and to react accordingly.
PARK DISTANCE CONTROL.
Parking and manoeuvring in confined spaces are made easy for you. Park Distance Control (PDC) at the front and rear uses ultrasound to measure the distance to any obstacles that may be present, warns you acoustically and shows how far any obstacles are away in the Control Display. The system switches on below a distance of 80 cm when the vehicle is moving and below 30 cm when stationary.
