BMW X3 Owners Manual: The concept

PDC is a support when parking. When you slowly approach an object in the rear - or also in the front of the vehicle if the feature is available - then the object is reported through:

  • Signal tones.
  • Visual display.

General information

Ultrasound sensors in the bumpers measure the distances from objects.

The maneuvering range, depending on the obstacle and environmental conditions, is approx. 6 ft/2 m.

An acoustic warning is first given:

  • By the front sensors and the two rear corner sensors at approx. 24 in/60 cm.
  • By the rear middle sensors at approx. 5 ft/1.50 m.

To ensure full functionality:

  • Do not cover sensors, e.g., with stickers, bicycle racks.
  • Keep the sensors clean and free of ice.
  • When using high-pressure washers, do not spray the sensors for long periods and maintain a distance of at least 12 in/30 cm.
