the ParkPilot (arrows) are located in both the front

- If tl'e driver is not familiar with the system.
- If the position or angle of the cam era has changed, e.g. following a rear-end collision . The system
should be checked by a qualified workshop.

2) Optical deception by the camera :


The Rear Assist reversing camera only supplies two-dimensional images. Due to the lack of depth of field
on the screen, potholes and dips in the ground, protruding parts on another vehicle or protruding objects
on the ground may be difficult or impossible to see on the image.
Objects or other vehicles may appear closer or further away on the screen than they actually are.

The area in fron t of and around the radar sensor
must not be covered by objects such as stickers or
auxiliary headlights , as this can impair the function
of Front Assist.

Any structural modifications to the vehicle, e .g .


lowering the vehicle or making alterations to the
front end trim , can impair the function of Front As-
sist. Structural mod1fictions should therefore only
be carried out by a qual ified workshop. Volkswa-
gen recommends using a Volkswagen dealership
for this purpose.
Incorrectly performed repa irs to the fron t end of the
vehicle can alter the position of the radar sensor
and therefore tmpair the function of Front Assist.
