Volkswagen Polo Owners Manual: Introduction

This chapter contains information on the following subjects:

 → Operating ParkPilot  
 → Acoustic and optical ParkPilot signals at the rear of the vehicle

The ParkPilot assists the driver when manoeuvring and parking.

The ultrasound sensors in the rear bumper transmit and receive ultrasonic waves. The system uses the time difference between the ultrasonic waves (i.e. between the transmission and reflection from obstacles and the point of reception) to continuously calculate the distance between the bumper and the obstacle.

Additional information and warnings:

WARNING

The ParkPilot is no substitute for full concentration on the part of the driver.

NOTICE

Please contact a qualified workshop if there is a fault in the system. Volkswagen recommends using a Volkswagen dealership for this purpose.

Volkswagen recommends that drivers practise using the ParkPilot in a traffic-calmed area or car park to allow them to familiarise themselves with the system and its functions.
