Backing into a parking space or getting out of one has never been easier, thanks to the 2008 Crossover’s optional Park Assist feature. It assesses the space available and directs you towards a suitable space, then the ultrasound sensors guide you in. You’ll see a visual guide to your manoeuvre on the central touchscreen as well as hear audio signals, so you can glide right in.
The USB connection on the 2008 Crossover lets you listen to tracks from an MP3 player or iPhone through the car’s audio system, so you could have your entire music collection in the car with you. Track listings appear on the touchscreen and, with Bluetooth, you can also use it to make and receive safe, hands-free phone calls.
Peugeot Connect SOS will automatically let the emergency services know if the airbags in your 2008 Crossover inflate, or the seatbelt pre-tensioners activate. It will also tell them exactly where you are, or you can contact them manually yourself. Peugeot Connect Assistance brings you roadside assistance whenever you need it.
In 2008 models with a Touch Screen (Active and above), you have the option to purchase a Peugeot Connect Apps USB key, which houses 3G connectivity, a GPS receiver and storage for the built in software interface and applications (apps). Simply insert the key into the USB socket in your car. Peugeot Connect Apps is accessed and controlled via the Connected Services menu on your car's Touch Screen. The apps, including driving aids and live traffic, parking and POI information, are accessed by simply touching the corresponding icon - exactly as you would with your smartphone.
