BMW 5 Series Owners & Service Manuals

BMW 5 Series: Auto PDC

On the G30, Auto PDC is activated automatically if the vehicle is approaching an object at a speed below approximately 3 mph (5 km/h) and the object is located in a collision-critical area. The Auto PDC function is available for both the front and rear of the vehicle.

The automatic switch-on function when obstacles are detected can be switched on and off via iDrive.

Further information about Auto PDC may be found in the "G12 Driver Assistance Systems" reference manual.

Active Park Distance Control

In G30 vehicles with the Parking Assistant, optional equipment (OE 5DM), or Parking Assistant Plus, (OE 5DN) optional equipment, the Park Distance Control function has been extended to include the Active Park Distance Control function. This automatically brakes the vehicle to a stop when it is travelling at walking speed ( < approximately 4 mph (6 km/h) ) if an object is detected behind the vehicle.

The Active Park Distance Control function can be switched on and off via iDrive.

The system does not relieve the driver of personal responsibility for correctly judging the traffic situation. The driver should check the traffic conditions and the vehicle's surroundings by looking around and react accordingly if required.

Further information about the Active Park Distance Control function may be found in the "G12 Driver Assistance Systems" reference manual.
