The Remote Control Parking function allows the driver to conveniently get out of the vehicle before parking it via remote control by moving it forward into, or reversing out of, a tight parking space or garage. The Remote Control Parking function is activated by the driver once outside the car, with the aid of the BMW display key.
The entire parking procedure is monitored by Park Distance Control (PDC), the Parking assistant and the Surround View sensors. In order to use Remote Control Parking, the vehicle must be facing forwards and positioned straight, directly in front of the parking space or garage. The driver can also brake the car during the parking process if necessary.
Once parked, the engine can be switched off via the key. And when it is time to leave, the engine can also be restarted via the key. During remote-controlled pulling out of a parking space, the vehicle autonomously reverses out of the parking space or garage.
