BMW 5 Series: Limits of the system

The function of the Intersection Warning may be restricted because of system limits or unfavorable conditions in the following situations, for example:

  • If there are other objects in the field of view of the sensors that are concealing the cross traffic.
  • Heavy fog, rain or snow.
  • If the front bumper is dirty or iced up.
  • If stickers have been attached near the radar sensors on the bumper.
  • If the speed of the approaching vehicle is very high.
  • If crossing objects are moving very slowly.
  • If it is almost impossible to detect the crossing traffic because of the way the road runs or topographical conditions, for example in tight bends, building complexes in the way etc.

The system does not replace the personal assessment of the road and the traffic situation.

The Intersection Warning is only intended to assist the driver. There can be functional limitations because of system restrictions or unfavorable topographical conditions.
