    Hi from the C7 A6 camp........given that we're pretty much the same insides and options.....

    We've come across an interesting one. Timothy's 2012 A6 SE Avant has a forward facing camera for parking and we're trying to track down what option it could possibly have come as part of.........spoke to a Dealer and he suggested it was the Park Assist which was part of the Advanced Tech Pack....

    I've got the Adv Tech Pack and so has Timothy and neither of us have Park Assist.....

    If has anyone got Park Assist and can they confirm if they have a forward facing parking camera - its under the middle of the 4 rings that would be great - become a mystery now..........

    I have park assist added, but my new car doesn't arrive for 3 weeks.
    If nobody's found out by then, I'll let you know.

    In the meantime: Have you found any functional requirement for the camera?
    i.e. Can you see through it somewhere in the MMI or something?

    My best guess: Speed limit display option.
    but I thought it was mounted on the rear view mirror.

    Also: auto-dimming/adaptive length headlights are meant to use a camera, too.

    According to Timothy the function of the camera is a forward wide angle bumper level view - presumably for parking by look of it - displayed on MMI in a similar fashion to the Rear camera.

    I think its either an evolution of the Advanced parking system which they haven't launched in the brochures yet or something linked with Park Assist parking due to its wide angle close range.

    I still believe Speed limit display 155 is using the camera behind the mirror which is for Lane Assist as its linked to being only order able in combination - says to me its a software thing/minor controller revision with the bulk of the hardware being included in other options

    'Only available in combination with MMI Navigation Plus (PNQ or WB4), and with active lane assist (PCB), Audi side assist (PCD) or adaptive cruise control (PCG/PCN)'

    The High Beam assist uses the camera behind the mirror as well.

    For sure as I've got Lane Assist and High Beam assist and the only forward facing camera's i have the the one behind the mirror and the infrared camera for night vision.

    Timothy,

    You got a photo of what this looks like in the MMI? Would like to see.

    I am just going out, so will take a photo, but it looks precisely the same as the rear parking camera, with the yellow track prediction and blue square for the size of the car. You won't see the difference between front and rear, I think.

    I slightly misled you...there is no blue box on the front camera, just a red line. I don't know exactly what it means, but I can guess!

    What do the options on the RHS of the screen do?

    Do you have side cameras as well?

    - I assume 1 is front / 1 is back?
