The system may not be fully functional in the following situations:

  • When a vehicle is approaching at a speed much faster than your own.
  • In heavy fog, wet conditions, or snowfall.
  • In tight curves or on narrow lanes.
  • If the bumper is dirty, iced up, or covered, for instance by stickers.
  • After improperly performed work on the vehicle paint.
  • If cargo protrudes.
  • In the event of missing, worn, poorly visible, merging, diverging, or multiple lane markings such as in construction areas.
  • When lane markings are covered in snow, ice, dirt or water.
  • When lane markings are covered by objects.
  • When driving very close to the vehicle in front of you.
  • If there are constant blinding effects because of oncoming light, for instance from the sun low in the sky.
  • If the field of view of the camera or the windshield is dirty or covered in the area of the interior mirror.
  • If the camera has overheated and been temporarily switched off due to excessively high temperatures.
  • Up to 10 seconds after the start of the engine via the Start/Stop button.
  • During calibration of the camera immediately after vehicle delivery.
