Volkswagen Touran Owners Manual: Introduction

This chapter contains information on the following subjects:

 → Parking distance warning system  

 → Optical parking system (OPS)  

 → Optical parking system (OPS) with all-round display  

The parking distance warning system assists the driver when manoeuvring and parking. An intermittent audible warning is given, depending on the distance if the vehicle approaches an obstacle. The shorter the distance, the shorter the intervals. The audible warning will sound continuously if the obstacle is very near.

If you continue to drive the vehicle closer to the obstacle despite the continuous audible warning, the system will not be able to measure the distance any more.

The sensors in the bumpers transmit and receive ultrasound waves. The electronic system uses the ultrasound waves (i.e. transmission, reflection from the obstacle and reception) to calculate the distance between the bumper and the obstacle.

Depending on equipment levels, sensors may be fitted in the front and in the rear bumper.

Additional information and warnings:

WARNING

Do not let the extra convenience afforded by the parking distance warning system and the optical parking system tempt you into taking any risks when driving. The system cannot replace the full concentration of the driver.

NOTICE

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