The Remote Control Parking assistance system enables your BMW to do the parking for you. After you’ve already got out of the vehicle, it parks itself by moving forward into, or reversing out of, a tight parking space or garage. You simply press the BMW display key to activate the remote-controlled parking function from outside the vehicle. The entire parking procedure is monitored by Park Distance Control (PDC), the Parking assistant and the Surround View sensors. In order to use the remote-controlled parking function, the vehicle has to be straight and centered, facing the parking space or garage. During the parking procedure the driver can bring the vehicle to a controlled stop if necessary. Once parked, the engine can be switched off via the key. And when it's time to move on, the engine can also be restarted via the key. During remote-controlled pulling out of a parking space, the vehicle automatically reverses in a straight line.
