Land Rover Discovery: Park assist limitations

Park assist is a supplement to, and not a replacement for, good observation and a safe driving style. It is the driver's responsibility, at all times, to make sure that reversing manoeuvres are carried out safely.

Park assist may provide inaccurate results if:

  • The size or shape of the parking space changes after it was measured.
  • There is an irregular kerb alongside the parking space, or the kerb is covered with leaves, snow, etc.
  • The vehicle is being used to transport a load that extends beyond the perimeter of the vehicle.
  • The vehicle had a repair or alteration that was not approved by a Retailer/ Authorised Repairer.
  • The vehicle has been fitted with non-approved wheels or tyres, or there is significant tyre wear.
  • One of the parked vehicles has an attachment at a raised height such as a flat bed truck, snow plough or cherry picker.
  • The parking space is located on a corner or curve.
  • The sensors are dirty or covered in mud, ice or snow.
  • The weather is foggy, raining or snowing.
  • The road surface is bumpy such as gravel.
  • A tow bar or trailer hitch is fitted.
  • A trailer is connected.

Note: If a trailer is connected to a Jaguar Land Rover approved trailer socket, the Park assist system will be disabled.

  • It encounters an obstruction that is thin or wedge shaped.
  • It encounters an obstruction that is elevated and/or protruding, such as ledges or tree branches.
  • It encounters an obstruction with corners and sharp edges.


Park assist is not searching for a parking space:

  • The system may not be activated.
  • The vehicle may be travelling above 30 km/h (18 mph).
  • The sensors may be covered or partly obscured by dirt, mud, ice, or snow.

Park assist does not offer a certain parking space:

  • The sensors may be covered or partly obscured by dirt, mud, ice, or snow.
  • The space may not be large enough, or there may not be enough space on the opposite side of the vehicle, for the front to swing out during the manoeuvre.
  • The vehicle may have been driven more than 1.5 m from the row of parked vehicles.
  • The vehicle may have been driven within 41 cm to the row of parked vehicles.
  • The vehicle may have been driven in reverse. Park assist searches for a parking space only when the vehicle is in Drive (D).
  • The approach angle may not be suitable.

Park assist has not positioned the vehicle accurately within the space:

  • One or more of the system limitations criteria may have been met.
