  • Navigation displays such as the map view or, if destination guidance is active, a route preview with destination guidance information.
  • Displays showing service requirements.
  • Assisted Driving View. Information about the assist systems is displayed in an animated surrounding area of the vehicle.

    The system's detection potential is limited.

    Only objects that are detected by the system are taken into account.

Warning The system cannot serve as a substitute for the driver's personal judgment in assessing visibility and traffic situation. There is a risk of accident.
