Blind Spot Detection | BMW Genius How-To

The Blind Spot Detection System detects traffic situations that could pose a risk if the driver changes lanes. Such traffic situations include vehicles approaching quickly from behind or vehicles in the driver's blind spot. An illuminated triangular warning LED appears in the exterior mirror if there is a vehicle in this critical area.
