The sensors, for 360° parking aid, do not detect moving objects, such as children and animals, until they are dangerously close. Responsibility remains the driver's to drive with due care and attention during low speed maneuvers.


The sensors, for 360° parking aid, may not detect some obstructions. e.g., narrow posts or small objects close to the ground. Objects above sensor level may not be detected, e.g., when approaching a flatbed truck, the protruding part of the flatbed will not be detected.


Accessories that are fitted to the front or rear of the vehicle, particular care must be taken when using the parking aid. Accessories that are mounted in a position where it obstructs operation of a sensor or sensors will only detect the distance from the bumper to the accessory. The accessory then displays as an obstacle. Any obstacle beyond the detected accessory may not be indicated on the touch screen.

Parking aid features.

  1. Parking aid switch: Located next to the touch screen. Press to switch on. The switch LED illuminates. Press again to switch off.

  2. Parking aid sensor detection zones.

    Grey blocks indicate objects detected that do not pose a threat (not in a collision path with vehicle).

    Colored blocks indicate objects detected that pose collision threats.

  3. 360° parking aid sensor detection zones.


The 360° parking aid feature is not available in some markets.


When a trailer is connected to a Jaguar Land Rover approved trailer socket, the rear sensors are disabled. When the trailer electrical plug is not connected to the socket, or a non approved towing system is fitted, the parking sensors do not operate as intended.

The 360° parking aid system automatically activates when Reverse (R) gear or Neutral (N) gear is selected.

The 360° parking aid system assists the driver while maneuvering the vehicle at low speed in confined spaces. When active, object tracking along the front, sides, and rear of the vehicle, displays on the touch screen. The front, side and outer rear sensors monitor a fixed distance around the vehicle. The inner rear sensors monitor a greater distance at the rear of the vehicle. The four side sensors provide the 360° parking aid monitoring along the vehicle's sides, creating a virtual detection zone.

While the vehicle is passing an object within its sensor range, the vehicle's integrated systems calculate its trajectory. The trajectory is displayed on the touch screen in the 360° parking aid monitored area. If a detected object is calculated to be a collision threat, it is displayed as colored blocks. A warning tone is given, which increases in speed as the vehicle approaches the object. The tone becomes continuous when the object is within 12 in (300 mm) of the vehicle.

Other detected objects are displayed as grey blocks.

While the vehicle is stationary, the sensors do not detect objects or people approaching from the side. Also, at vehicle start-up, the vehicle has no sensor information about side objects or people. In both of these situations, ! displays on the touch screen in these virtual detection zones.


At vehicle start-up, the front sensors may not detect low objects, even if they were detected during the original parking maneuvers.

When a forward gear is subsequently selected, the sensors remain active until the vehicle’s speed reaches 10 mph (16 km/h), at which point the system disables.

To manually enable the front and side sensors while moving in a forward direction, press the parking aid switch (1). The LED lamp illuminates to confirm operation. Press the switch again to disable. The LED lamp extinguishes to confirm.


The parking aid system disables if the vehicle's speed exceeds 10 mph (16 km/h).


The sensors must be kept clean to maintain accuracy and performance. See SENSORS AND CAMERAS.
