G30 (2017 - Current)
The next generation 5 Series, chassis code G30, arrives at dealers in February 2017. Looking like a scaled down 7 Series and riding on the CLAR platform, the new 5 Series will have a focus on lightweight and sporty performance. Engines options will come from BMW's new B family for the 530 and 540 and a turbocharged V8 for the M550i. Read more about the 2017 5 Series

Adjust volume of backup camera warnings?

Hey all- as I sit here at my desk at work, I am reminded of something I wondered on the way in this morning- is there a way to turn down the volume of the backup camera alert beeps?

Did you try the volume button on the steering wheel while it's beeping? Know i works on voice and also retains the setting.

"Gong" volume setting in iDrive. Not sure of menu path without going out to car (at work now). It is related to PDC, not the camera itself.

Does "all over" include (off the top of my head):
  • Settings
  • Tone
  • Volume Setting

You may also be able to get there from Multimedia or Radio, too...because I think you can adjust to compensate for your personal listening level vs the Gong and/or PDC beeps. But you may have to click on the OPTION button to get to the area to adjust "tones".

As mentioned above, I'm going off the top of my head since I'm sitting at my desk...and I drove my e53 X5 to work...so I don't have the ability to walk out to the car to check specifically.

I found it- what threw me off was that I have a B+W sound system, so the sound volume adjust was located under "Bowers and Wilkins Tone" in the media panel, so not an intuitive place to look to adjust system volumes..

Great! Thanks for the update to let us know you found it...as well as adding additional info for those that have upgraded sound systems.
