Land Rover Discovery: Using the parking aid

Using the parking aid

  1. Parking aid switch. Located next to the Touch screen.
  2. Parking aid sensor detection zones.
  3. 360º Park Distance Control sensor detection zones.

Parking aid and 360º Park Distance Control sensors will not detect moving objects, such as children and animals, until they are dangerously close. Always use extreme caution when manoeuvring.

  • The Parking aid and 360º Park Distance Control sensors may not detect some obstructions, for example, narrow posts or small objects close to the ground.
  • If accessories, for example, a tow bar, are fitted to the rear of the vehicle, particular care must be taken when reversing. The rear sensors will only indicate the distance from the bumper to the obstacle.

Note: If a trailer is connected to a Jaguar Land Rover approved trailer socket, the rear sensors will be disabled.

The Parking aid and 360º Park Distance Control systems assist the driver while manoeuvring the vehicle in confined spaces. When active, object tracking along the front, side, and rear of the vehicle are displayed on the Touch screen. The four corner sensors provide the 360º Park Distance Control monitoring along the vehicle sides. While the vehicle is passing an object that is within sensor range, the vehicle's integrated systems calculate its trajectory within the 360º Park Distance Control monitored area.

While the vehicle is stationary, the sensors will not detect an object/person approaching from the side. Also, at vehicle start-up, the vehicle has no sensor information about side objects/persons.

In both of these situations, an X displays on the Touch screen in the vehicle's blind spots.

The front, side, and outer rear sensors monitor a 1.2 m area around the vehicle.

The inner rear sensors monitor a 1.8 m area at the rear of the vehicle.

The Parking aid system automatically activates when Reverse (R) gear is selected, then the front, rear, and side sensors are activated. The sensors remain active until the vehicle's speed reaches 16 km/h (10 mph).

If a forward gear is subsequently selected, the front, rear, and side sensors remain active until the vehicle's speed reaches 16 km/h (10 mph).

By pressing and holding the Parking aid switch (1) for three seconds, the Parking aid system enters into an Auto-on mode, activating the front and side sensors when the vehicle's speed decreases to less than 10 km/h (6 mph), in a forward direction.

The Parking aid switch LED lamp illuminates to confirm. Auto-on mode remains active after the ignition is switched off and on again. To disable the Auto-on mode, press and hold the Parking aid switch for three seconds. The Parking aid switch LED lamp extinguishes to confirm.

Note: To manually enable the front and side sensors in a forward direction, press the Parking aid switch for less than three seconds. The LED lamp illuminates to confirm. Press the switch again to disable the temporary use of this setting. The LED lamp extinguishes to confirm.

Note: The Parking aid system is always temporarily disabled if the vehicle's speed exceeds 16 km/h (10 mph).

When objects are detected, the system emits a warning tone, which increases in frequency as the vehicle gets closer to an object. The tone becomes constant when the object is within 300 mm of the vehicle.

Note: The warning tone stops when the distance between the vehicle and the object remains constant.

Note: If the Parking aid system does not detect an object likely to come into contact with the vehicle, it does not display any tracking information on the Touch screen.

Note: The sensors must be kept clean to maintain accuracy and performance.

Parking aid system fault

If a system fault is detected, a long high-pitched tone is emitted and the switch indicator flashes. Also, a graphic and a Parking aid message is displayed on the Touch screen. Contact a Retailer/ Authorised Repairer as soon as possible.
