BMW 5 Series: Cameras

The camera systems provide support for parking, maneuvering and for complex exits and intersections.

The range of camera systems offered has changed completely with the G30. With the exception of the rear view camera, the systems are no longer available as individual items of optional equipment.

The new range strategy now looks like this:

  • The rear view camera is available separately as the rear view camera, optional equipment (OE 3AG).
  • Surround View is offered in conjunction with the Parking Assistant Plus, optional equipment (OE 5DN). The Surround View function with Top View, Panorama View and 3D View provides 360º visibility around the vehicle.
  • The Remote 3D view (Remote 360º) is presented for the first time in conjunction with the Parking Assistant Plus, optional equipment (OE 5DN). This function allows the customer to display images of his parked vehicle on a mobile device (such as a smartphone).
