Step by step guide for how to use the active parking assist on your Mercedes-Benz vehicle
As we mentioned above, the active parking assist will assess whether a spot is spacious enough to acquire your vehicle. When you find an area that you would like to park in, simply drive at below twenty mph. Your active parking assist feature will automatically engage itself at those speeds to find a spot. A blue “P” icon will light up on your trip computer when your vehicle is actively searching. When it finds a spot, it will indicate it to you with an arrow icon. The arrow will appear on your dashboard, on the side of your vehicle that the parking spot is available.
Once your vehicle has found a spot, you can use the active parking assist feature by putting your Mercedes-Benz vehicle in reverse. Press the “OK” button on your display when you are in reverse and ready to go. From there, the active parking assist will steer your vehicle into the spot but still allows you to brake and accelerate.
