Moving camera angle

When the moving camera angle is selected, a circular trajectory is shown around the vehicle on the Central Information Display. Predetermined angles can be selected on the circular trajectory by turning the controller or using the touch function.

In vehicles with the Gesture Control, optional equipment (OE 6U8), the moving camera angle can also be controlled in this way.

The current angle is identified by a camera symbol. Depending on the view, the surroundings of the vehicle or a partial area of the surroundings are shown on the Central Information Display.
