Retrofit Lane Assist

Is there any way to code/activate Lane Assist on a G30? The car has the KAFAS2 cameras. On my previous car, you could enable (by coding) Lane Assist, Roadsign Recognition and High Beam Assist, if the car had the "KAFAS" camera. The only thing the car uses the camera for at the moment is the "Emergency Brake".

I also wonder this. I have KAFAS (2 stereo cameras) and an lane assist (which only gives warning and doesn't put the car back to lane). My car doesn't have a front radar sensor. Can an active lane assist be coded so the car will use steering wheel intervention to hold the line??

It is possible, it requires an FSC code for Kafas2 and coding and importing fsc.

Was that reply to me, or to both of us?

If it was for me, then how is it done - or who can help me? Iīm located in Denmark.

Iīve also seen in the new G30 accessories catalogue, that you can now order to different adaptive cruise controls. One of them are using the cameras, and works up to 140 km/h. Can that be activated as well?

Do you have touch sensor in steering wheel? ( or empty buttons on steering wheel control?)

I have empty buttons in the steering wheel, yes - i donīt have Adaptive Cruise at the moment, only the ordinary Cruise Control.

I donīt think I have sensors either; in my previous car the feedback for the Lane Assist was handled through the steering angle sensor.

In that case you would need a different steering wheel with touch sensor as well.

eBay might be helpful on that part. But who can do the coding, and how?

Do you know about the Adaptive Cruise using the KAFAS2 cameras?

Adaptive Cruise does not use KAFAS2, but a radar sensor mounted in the lower bumper grill of the car.

There are many coding options, if you dont have any local people than you need an enet cable and have it coded remotley

I know. But as I mentioned, the new price list indicates that there are two options for ACC now. One that uses the radar, and one that uses the cameras. The latter is obviously cheaper and works only up to 140 km/h.

The camerabased adaptive cruise is described as "5DF" and it is clearly stated that itīs camerabased, and it only works up to 140 km/h.

If that's the case I also want this option to be coded together with the adaptive lane assist
