Thank you this makes sense now!Hi Dan, congratulations on your purchase and a warm welcome to the forum. The GLC does indeed have a total of 12 ultrasonic parking sensors at the front and rear, they are the circular devices set into the valances. Distances are gauged by the left and right histograms displayed at the top of the LCD screen between the speedo and rev counter. As you get closer to an object the number of amber blocks increase. At a certain proximity red blocks are added and a continuous audible warning is heard. Be aware raindrops and insect strikes can also trigger the sensors into a full scale deflection with warning beep for no apparent reason. I would expect an audible warning when you are within one foot of an object but I don't know the actual trigger distance for the alarm.
Mine does not have this option either. You had to add this--and I forget the specific name of the option/package.I took delivery of my new car yesterday and absolutely love it so far. The only thing I cant figure out (maybe as it doesnt have it?) are parking sensors, audible parking sensors that Ive had on other vehicles.
I can literally be a foot away from a car Im parking behind in my street and it does not make a beeping sound at all? In my previous vehicle (Audi) the car would beep progressively faster the closer you were to an object, car or person.
Any help on this? New to this forum too.
