When parking with the rearview camera or peripheral camera, the parking aid audio and visual warnings will also assist you.

Visual orientation lines

  1. The orange orientation lines show the vehicle's direction of travel. Turn the steering wheel until the orange orientation lines align with the parking space.
  2. You can use the horizontal blue markings to help you estimate the distance to an obstacle.

    Each marking represents approximately 3 feet (1 meter). The blue surface is a static display and represents an extension of the vehicle perimeter to the rear.

  3. You can recognize the rear bumper in the lower display.
  4. You should stop driving in reverse when the red orientation line touches the edge of an object, at the latest.

Symbols

Applies to: vehicles with peripheral cameras

If is displayed and the display area represented by that symbol is not available, then the camera on the that side is not available. The power exterior mirrors may have been folded in or a door or the luggage compartment lid may have been opened.

If is displayed, there is a system malfunction and the display area represented by that symbol is not available. The camera is not working in this area.

If one of the symbols continues to be displayed, drive immediately to an authorized Audi dealer or authorized Audi Service Facility to have the malfunction repaired.

WARNING

  • Observe the safety precautions and note the limits of the assist systems, sensors, and cameras.
  • Sensors and cameras have spots in which the surrounding area cannot be detected.

    Objects, animals, and people may only be detected with limitations may not be detected at all. Always monitor the traffic and the vehicle's surroundings directly and do not become distracted.

Note

  • The orange orientation lines (1) show the direction the rear of the vehicle will be traveling, based on the steering wheel angle. The front of the vehicle swings out more than the rear of the vehicle. Maintain plenty of distance so that an exterior mirror or a corner of the vehicle does not collide with any obstacles.
  • Keep enough distance from the curb to avoid damage to the rims.
  • Only use the images provided by the camera on the rear of the vehicle when the luggage compartment lid is completely closed. Make sure any objects you may have mounted on the luggage compartment lid do not block the rearview camera.
