8.1 Using MagicWatch

MagicWatch is activated automatically when you shift into reverse gear with

the ignition on or the engine running. A short double beep sounds to indicate

that it is working.

Once an obstacle is in the detection range, the distance is indicated by the

various LED colours. A sequence of warning signals is sounded in addition.

As you approach the obstacle when driving in reverse, the colours of the

LEDs change as does the speed of the sound sequence. MagicWatch differentiates

between three distance categories (see Chapter “Performing a functional

test” on page 42).

Each LED represents a sensor. If the right edge of the vehicle approaches

an obstacle, the LED on the right signals the obstacle. If the obstacle is

detected by the middle sensors, the middle LEDs light up etc.

The LED colours represent the distance ranges shown below:

LED Distance

Green approx. 1.2 – 0.8 m

Orange approx. 0.8 – 0.4 m

Red approx. 0.4 – 0 m


Stop the vehicle immediately and investigate the situation (getting

out if necessary), if the following happens while you are reversing:

The device first shows an obstacle while you drive in reverse, and

the beeps speed up as normal (i.e. from slow to medium). Suddenly

the beeping sound slows down, or no obstacle is shown at


This means that the original obstacle is in the blind spot of the sensors

(construction-related characteristic), and it is possible to hit it.
