BMW 5 Series: Assistant function

The following assistance functions are available:

  • Car wash view
  • Side protection
  • Door opening angle

Car wash view

The car wash view assists the driver when entering a car wash. When the car wash view is selected, immediately before entering the car wash, a bird's eye view is displayed on the Central Information Display. To enable the driver to align the vehicle more easily, the vehicle's tire tracks are shown on the display.

The car wash view can be activated via the iDrive in the toolbar under the "Car wash" menu item.

Side protection

The side protection warns against obstacles at the side of the vehicle and thus supports the driver when parking and maneuvering.

To protect the sides of the vehicle from collisions with obstacles, additional obstacle markings are shown to the side of the vehicle on the Central Information Display, if necessary.

More information on the operation of the side protection function can be found.

Door opening angle

When the vehicle is stopped and the selector lever position "P" is engaged, the maximum opening angle of the doors is displayed on the Central Information Display.

If there is an obstacle near the door and it is detected by the side protection, this is marked on the Central Information Display. The obstacle marking display only points out objects in the area of the door. It is not possible for a view from the camera systems to be displayed, as the door area is simulated. Therefore, the driver is only informed that there is an object at the side of the vehicle; it is not certain that the door will definitely collide with the identified object. The driver must judge this for himself.

The "Parking assistance lines" and "Obstacle marking" features already used in other BMW models can also be activated and deactivated via the iDrive in the toolbar under the relevant menu items.

The camera systems do not relieve the driver of personal responsibility for correctly judging the traffic situation. There is still a risk of an accident. The driver's driving style should be adapted to the traffic conditions. The driver should check the traffic conditions and the vehicle's surroundings by looking around and react accordingly if required.
