Reverse Assistant - Standard feature?

Reverse Assistant is a standard feature in BMW X5 2019?

The feature in which the car reverses out of tight spaces by itself.

Oh I see. So reverse assistant is not a standard feature under "driving assistant"? I was under the impression that it is a standard feature.

I think the reverse assistant IS standard, in that it shows you distances and alerts when you get close to something when backing up. Parking assistant adds automated parking. I got that in my car but havenít tried it.

I back in to park next to my house, and it goes nuts when I get really close to the house. This is NOT using the parking assist. Iíve only had the car since yesterday so havenít tried everything yet. Otherwise I havenít parked anywhere else either.

You can see all the standard features in a variety of places - including your carís owners manual, which is produced for the specific features your car has.

Having said that, my owners manual includes settings for the HUD, which I donít have, but not for other driving/safety features I DONíT have, like intelligent cruise control.

Hope that helps!

Reversing Assistant is the feature of the Parking Assistance package that will do the steering for backing up the last 165ft, you just do the brake and gas.

While looking at the 2020 pricing guide I noticed that they have a note that the Backup Assistant is included in the Parking Assistant Plus. In addition to that being part of the Parking Assistance Package it is also included in the Executive Package.

Park distance control, front and rear, is standard. It is listed under comfort and convenience features.

ďBMW Park Distance Control (or PDC) is a system that warns drivers of nearby objects when parking. The system works only on the rear of some older vehicles but works on both the front and rear of newer BMW models. The system uses ultrasonic sensors embedded in the vehicle to detect objects.Ē

The system uses ultrasonic sensors embedded in the vehicle to detect objects. Once the vehicle is within approximately 3 feet of the object a warning tone sounds to notify the driver. As you get closer the frequency of the warning tone's beeping increases, until it becomes a solid tone when the vehicle is approximately 12 inches away from the nearest obstruction. Depending on the vehicle model and equipment the system may also include a visual representation of the car's situation on the iDrive screen.

Backup assistant is different than what you have shared.

The point is - this basic feature is standard. I DO have parking assist upgrade on my car, but this parking feature is always active.

I can’t find backup assistant listed anywhere on BMW as either standard or an option. Kinda frustrating, and as usual, confusing. Can you find it?

Maybe is it a term they don’t use any more.

It is listed in the pricing guide that I posted. I believe it is a brand new feature with iDrive 7 but haven't looked into that.

Ok, they call it reversing assistant. Thatís why I couldnít find it.
Good discussion! And as always, thanks again!

I kinda doubt anyone orders this car without some added features, but Iíve seen quite a few base models listed in dealer inventories.

They call it both which doesn't help, the pricing guide has Backup and iiDrive has Backup but the Manual has Reversing as well as Back-up.

Does the beeping get annoying when entering the garage? I have a narrow garage opening (95") and am concerned that the beeping will distract me from entering and exiting properly. Anybody with experience on this?

Yes, I get beeping all the time when I drive into my garage. You just have to get used to it. I usually back into the garage and the backup view in the display shows me everything I am near.

BTW no matter how wide your garage entrance is your car is always within one foot of something; stuff gets in the way

You can lower the volume of PDC (Park distance control) in the audio settings.
