- VW T5 Front OPS Parking Sensors Upgrade £590+ Vat
VW Optical Front Parking Sensors Upgrade for Transporter T5 2010-2015
VW T5 Front Optical Parking Sensors Upgrade. If your T5 does have rear genuine factory fitted parking sensors, it is possible to add front optical sensors to upgrade to Full OPS Front and Rear parking sensors.
Optical Parking Sensors provide a visual display of the Vehicle on the radio or navigation system screen, showing the vehicles position and distance from obstacles. The location of any obstacle within range of the ultrasonic sensors is highlighted on screen. Optical Rear parking sensors would mute your Radio ( if you have one fitted like OEM VW RNS510 or RNS315) helping you to focus on parking more.
If Your Volkswagen Transporter T5 does have Aftermarket Multimedia or Navigation Fitted, in addition we may need to fit CAN-BUS Interface that would work with your radio, steering wheel and provide optical display for parking sensors, cost may very. In many causes Car- audio fitter would chose to fit cheaper Interface... and unfortunately the only way to get OPS on the Multimedia is by replacing the basic can-bus interface...
Front and Rear OPS parking sensors activate automatically with reverse gear or on/off OEM VW PDC Button. The buzzer will beep once, The system will stay active as long as reverse gear is on. Closer you are to an obstacle, the faster it beeps, and finally at about one foot away it goes constant.
If there is no obstacle detected the Front and Rear OPS system switch off automatically after several seconds from deselecting reverse gear or when the vehicle drives faster than approximately 6mph.
You can mute the acoustic signals of the VW optical parking system by pressing the MUTE function button on the radio screen or navigation system. The muting will be canceled if the OPS is Switched off and on again.
Also, Front and Rear OPS Parking sensors work in conjunction with Rear view OEM VW Camera, If you have both fitted, selecting reverse gear would turn the camera and OPS On. Picture of optical sensors will be displayed on the left hand side of the screen. This may work differently with aftermarket Navigation, however in general most of the latest Multimedia/ Navigation System would display both or give you ability to switch between them.
