Hi

Ah maybe that's the issue then as I was testing it by moving the car up and down the drive however that's not going to be of much use when parking in a car park as I certainly won't be reversing at 7mph+

Well you still want the sensors to work when parking. They are just annoying when someone walks past the car. At least now if your in 1st gear or neutral and someone walks behind the car they won't go off.

Just tried this by going into Collision alert settings and only disables until the ignition is reset so only good for single journeys.

Think I'll just continue to switch them off by the button

Just got my car back from warranty work and the sensors now only beep when the clutch is in and a gear selected. Havent worked it out exactly but they dont start beeping as soon as you put the ignition on. Software update I assume.

My partner has a late 2016 Opel Astra K. This Park Assist thing is such a poorly thought through feature. I just took our dogs somewhere this morning and it's such an annoyance when moving around the car with the engine running. Especially in minus 2 Celcius, trying to de-ice the car with 3 Cocker Spaniels running rings around me. When driving in crawling traffic if a cyclist or pedestrian crosses close to the car it starts blaring. It's so ridiculously loud. I've just tried to disable it per the first post and *typical* no such luck. I can switch Park Assist 'Off' in which case it doesn't beep at all for obstacles - or I can have it 'On' and disable it manually each time using the 'P' button ... unless of course, I'm standing outside of the frigging car. (Speaking of that button - am I the only person who feels the ergonomics behind the placement of the driving aid buttons ahead of the gearstick is moronic? The 'ASR', 'Sport' and 'Lane Keep Assist' buttons are either completely or partially obscured from the driver's view in a RHD car. Is this progress?)

I previously had a 2014 Mazda 3 with front and rear parking sensors which worked perfectly well for parking - without the need for this idiotic autonomous park assist nonsense. Far superior car to the Astra, by the way, in every respect.

I've heard people bemoaning the fact that French ownership will ruin Opel/Vauxhall. At least future models shouldn't have stupid features like this for particularly dense nationalities which I shall allow to remain nameless; unless specifically asked.
