Parking Guidance is automatically activated when you drive forwards. The system is operational at speeds of up to approximately 22 mph (35 km/h). While in operation, the system independently locates and measures parking spaces on both sides of the vehicle.

When driving at speeds below 19 mph (30 km/h), you will see parking symbol 2 as a status indicator in the instrument cluster.

When a parking space has been detected, an arrow towards the right 3 or the left 1 also appears. Parking Guidance only displays parking spaces on the front-passenger side as standard. Parking spaces on the driver's side are displayed as soon as the turn signal on the driver's side is activated. To park on the driver's side, you must leave the driver's side turn signal switched on until you have engaged reverse gear.

Parking Guidance will only detect parking spaces:
Х that are parallel to the direction of travel
Х that are at least 5 ft (1.5 m) wide
Х that are at least 4.3 ft (1.3 m) longer than your vehicle

A parking space is displayed while you are driving past it, and until you are approximately 50 ft (15 m) away from it.
