The High Beam Assistant provides you with the best visibility at any time because it switches automatically between low beam and high beam depending on the lighting situation. The assistant also makes sure you do not dazzle oncoming drivers. Thanks to this system, you can leave your high beam on and fully concentrate on driving through the twilight and night.

DESCRIPTION

arrow-bottom-gs60

KEEPING AN EYE ON EVERYTHING IN THE DARK.

Do you regularly use your high beams or do you avoid using them because constantly switching them on and off becomes tedious? With the High Beam Assistant, you must no longer choose between convenience and safety. A camera near your BMW's interior mirror already detects the headlights of oncoming vehicles at a distance of 700 metres and automatically switches to low beam. From a distance of 400 metres the camera also detects if you approach a vehicle ahead and makes sure you do not dazzle other drivers. As soon as you are the only vehicle on the road, your high beams will automatically reactivate, allowing you to once again have everything in sight.

The hardware required for this feature comes ready-installed in your vehicle when it leaves the factory. This gives you even more flexibility when it comes to configuring your vehicle.

You can find a detailed description of this feature in your vehicle's operating instructions.
