Aston Martin DBX 2021 Active Park Assist User Manual
Active Park Assist (Optional)
Active Park Assist is available when the suspension is set to GT or Sport mode. The system is not recommended for use while Access mode is enabled. Active Park Assist measures the road on both sides of the vehicle to locate a parking space the vehicle will fit in. The active park system will also provide vehicle steering to assist in parking in spaces.
Important Safety Information
Active Park Assist is only an aid. It is the driver’s responsibility to be aware of their surroundings when parking or reversing. Make sure that no persons, animals or objects are in the vehicle’s path. Active Park Assist is not available if PDC is deactivated or not functioning.
Warning: While parking, the vehicle can move into areas of oncoming traffic. This can cause a collision with other road users. Stop the vehicle or cancel the Active Park Assist parking procedure if necessary.
Caution: Parking spaces that are partially occupied may be measured incorrectly. Examples of partially occupied parking spaces can be trailer drawbars, overgrown parking spaces, or incorrect measurements due to heavy rain or snow. Care should be taken to make sure the space is clear.
Caution: Active Park Assist will not be able to detect objects above the sensor height range when a parking space is measured. These objects will not be included when the parking procedure is calculated. Active Park Assist should not be used around objects such as overhanging loads or tail sections of goods vehicles. Active Park Assist can be canceled at any time by manually controlling the steering wheel. Active Park Assist may also display parking spaces that are not suitable such as prohibited parking zones, driveways, or unsuitable road surfaces. Active Park Assist should only be used for roads that are parallel or at right angles to the direction of travel and on the same road level. The system should not be used for measuring spaces on bends or on raised footpaths.
Parking Space Detection
Active Park Assist operates at speeds of up to approximately 22 mph (35 km/h). Activate the Active Park Assist feature with the button.
At speeds below 18 mph (30 km/h), will show in the instrument cluster. When a parking space has been detected that the vehicle will fit into, a left or right arrow will show which side of the vehicle the space is on.
Active Parking Assist will only detect parking spaces that are:
- parallel to the direction of travel and at least 1.5 m (5 ft) wide and 1 m (3.3ft) longer than your vehicle.
- At right angles to the direction of travel and at least 1 m wider than your vehicle.
- Active Park Assist is not able to measure the depth of a
parking space if it is at right angles to the vehicle. You must judge if your vehicle will fit in the parking space. The system automatically determines if the parking space is parallel or at right angles to the direction of travel. A parking space is displayed while you are driving past it, until you are approximately 15 m (50 ft) away from it.
Active Park Assist does not assist with parking in right angle space if:
- Two parking spaces are located directly next to each other
- The parking space is directly next to a low obstacle such as a low kern
- Active Park Assist will only display parking spaces on the front-passenger side as standard.
Parking spaces on the driver’s side will be displayed if the turn signal on the driver’s side is on. The indicator must remain on, until Active Park Assist is confirmed.
Parking with Active Park Assist
(Active Park Assist is not available in all drive modes) When a parking space has been found and is shown in the instrument cluster, stop the vehicle and select R (Reverse).
- Start Park Assist will show in the instrument cluster display. Press OK on the steering wheel to confirm. To cancel press
or continue to drive away from the space.
- Release the steering wheel and slowly reverse the vehicle, being ready to brake at all times. Reversing at a speed above 6 mph (10 km/h) will cancel Active Park Assist.
Additional maneuvering may be required in tight parking spaces. If it is necessary for the vehicle to move forward, a message will show in the right message window. Select D (Drive) while the vehicle is stationary. Active Parking Assist will then counter-steer to change the approach angle.
360° Camera System
Caution: The camera system can show a distorted or incorrect view of obstacles or not at all. Obstacles will not be shown under, or in very close proximity to, the front or rear bumpers. Care should also be taken in the blind spots close to the door mirrors, tailgate or transitional areas between cameras in the top-down view.
Caution: Objects that are not at ground level can appear further away than they are. Care should be taken when maneuvering around items such as tow bars and vehicle bumpers. The 360° camera system uses four cameras (front, rear, and both door mirrors) to give a complete view of the vehicle’s immediate surroundings. The system can then be used in a split-screen view to suit different driving scenarios.
To activate the 360° camera, press the button on the lower console. The camera will show the split screen with either the front or rear view, depending on the transmission selection.
The camera system will be disabled when the vehicle speed exceeds 16 km/h (10 mph). At higher speeds, the camera display will still be selected, but no image will be shown.
The system will display images again when the vehicle speed drops below 11 km/h (7 mph). The ignition must be on for the cameras to operate.
To select the different views, push up on the CONTROL DIAL to the view selection bar.
The split-screen views that can be shown are:
- Full-screen rear view
- Top 360° view with front view
- Top 360° view with side views
- Full-screen front view
- Top 360° view with rear view
- Top 360° view with trailer coupling view1
Top View with Park Distance Control (Front and Rear views)
To aid with parking the vehicle, a dynamic overlay screen will be shown over the camera image. The overlay screen adjusts with the steering angle and shows the following information:
- Distance markers (0.3 m and 4.0 m / 1 F t and 13 ft)
- Projected tyre path
- Maximum vehicle width guideline (includes door mirrors) Activation by Reverse
The top 360° view with rear view can be set to activate automatically when
- (Reverse) is selected (Refer to ’Assistance’, page 10.3).
