Park Assist is a system designed to make city parking easier by automating some of the maneuvers you need to get into parallel and perpendicular parking spaces and to exit parallel parking spaces.4
Once you have switched it on, Park Assist uses sensors around your Jaguar vehicle to measure potential parking spaces as you drive past. Once it has detected a space that is at least 20 percent longer than your car, it asks you to stop, let go of the steering wheel and select reverse gear, via the touchscreen and instrument cluster. It then takes over the steering as you accelerate in reverse. If you try to steer yourself, the system deactivates.4
Still, you should always remain alert for objects, other vehicles, children and animals in the vicinity. You control the accelerator and brakes, so you can go as slowly as you like and stop when you need to.4
If you need to change your direction, for example, it will ask you to stop and choose a forward or reverse gear, as necessary. It will still control the steering to park your Jaguar neatly within the space.
There are three modes: Parallel Park helps you reverse into a parking space parallel to your car, Perpendicular Park gets you neatly into a space at 90 degrees to your car and Parking Exit helps you leave a parallel space.
To activate the Park Assist auto-searching feature, you just need to slow down below 18 mph. Alternatively, you can activate Park Assist via the touchscreen. You also use the button to choose which mode you need—Parallel Park, Perpendicular Park or Parking Exit—and to switch the system off.4
Using Park Assist is not recommended on a curved road or on a narrow road with cars parked on both sides. A minimum road width of 14.75 feet between parked cars is required.
The Park Assist system detects large objects, such as other vehicles, but may not detect hazards such as children, animals, mesh fences, bicycles or motorbikes near the curb. You should remain alert to your surroundings.4
MORE PARKING AIDS
FRONT AND REAR PARKING AID
Sensors in the front and rear bumpers are triggered when you select reverse gear. The touchscreen display and audio feedback indicate how close you are to obstacles.4
REAR TRAFFIC MONITOR
The system warns you of vehicles, pedestrians and other hazards approaching the rear of your vehicle from either the right or left side. It will alert you with both audio and visual warnings so you know what’s behind you even when the view is obstructed.4
To enable the Driving and Parking features for InControl Driver Assistance, there is a choice of camera options:
360° SURROUND CAMERA
For a clear view of your surroundings, the Surround Camera System provides a 360° overhead view via the touchscreen, helping with various maneuvers, from parking by the curb to getting in and out of tight spaces and intersections.4
REAR VIEW CAMERA
Rear View Camera makes parking in tight spots simpler. Lines representing the vehicle’s outer perimeter and predicted path are superimposed on the rear-view image displayed on your touchscreen.4
360° PARKING AID
Parking-aid sensors on the rear, front and sides provide real-time audio and visual feedback to indicate how close you are to obstacles.4
As we roll out InControl, specific features described may be optional and powertrain dependent. Please consult your local Jaguar Retailer for availability and full terms. Certain features require an appropriate SIM with a suitable data contract, which will require a further subscription after the initial term advised by your retailer. Mobile connectivity cannot be guaranteed in all locations.
