Video of X5 auto-reverse feature

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Just discovered this video on YouTube tonight. Its the first video I've seen of someone actually driving the new X5. Its short and only shows the auto-reverse memory feature. But hey...its something!

That's pretty cool! Probably one of those things you will use like once a year, but still cool!

Brilliant!. My commute back home from work will be in reverse but automatic.
But seriously, a cool feature.

BMW considering making Driving Assistant/Parking Assistant a monthly/annual charge? https://www.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh....php?t=1529207

I'm at a loss what the point of this is. I have the auto-park feature on my current X5 and have yet to use it once.

So many dumb features we're seeing as of late, but I guess BMWs gotta keep up with the Jones'!

I see this as such an easy implementation from an engineering perspective since they have all the sensors and electronically controlled steering - they'd probably charge $500+ extra for this feature within a package off the get go or more as a stand alone option... easy money for them.

Novelty feature indeed...

What even is the point ?!? it takes 10x longer then to just do it yourself.

Its like that stupid effing trailer backup system on Ford vehicles. Its so painfully slow its just easier and far quicker to just do it yourself. If you have to rely on a computer to reverse your trailer then you shouldn't be pulling one!

I got held up on the boat ramp a few months back because of how damn slow it is. Got so pissed off I asked if I could just back their boat down the ramp for them.

They said "We have this system and the dealer said We have to use it to reverse the trailer, he said if we didn't we could ruin the truck" .......I didnt even know what to say to that, I just said I have it in my truck and have never even used it and my truck is fine. They let me finish reversing for them. #facepalm.

Everyone is so close minded.

It's for idiots who don't know how to drive, you know... the ones who hit your car in the parking lot, and just drive off without even realizing they just caused 2-4K in damage.

They do realize it, that is the reason for them driving off

You should cry more than laugh, since pheerIx might not be that far off (or maybe pheerIx received the same survey I did, about features like these being a subscription based service).
