You can’t see what you can’t see. But available Park Distance Control (Park Pilot) can help1. Park Pilot uses ultrasonic sensors in the rear bumper – and in the front on select models – to warn you about objects and vehicles you’re close to but may not see.
Designed to help you while parking, Park Pilot helps alert you if something is close, using both visual and audible alerts. On your touchscreen display, Park Pilot signals where the objects are around you. Depending on vehicle equipment, you may be able to toggle between Park Pilot and Rearview Camera for a more complete picture of what’s going on behind you.
You can’t always be looking at your touchscreen, so Park Pilot can also alert you using an audible chime. The chime beeps slowly when you are further away from objects and faster as you get closer. You can mute the chime by pressing the touchscreen.
Park Distance Control (Park Pilot) is one of several available Volkswagen Driver Assistance features available on the following 2016 Volkswagen models: Jetta, Passat, CC, Golf, Golf SportWagen, Golf GTI, Golf R, e-Golf 2, Beetle and Touareg.
