Had our first snowfall today in Syracuse, NY.

My first time in my new Q50 with snow.

My G37 rear sonar would annoy me backing up when snow covered the sonar sensors, but it wasnt a big deal because I was simply backing up.

Now, with snow on my front sonar, anytime I'm below 10mph, the front sonar beeps and my map changes to the front camera. So at every stop light, stop sign, etc. I get the big beeeeeep. I can shut it off my pressing the sonar off button on the touchscreen, but i have to do that every single time i come to a stop.

Any advice? Super annoying... But I really do like the front sonar for parking, etc.

When this happened to me last week I was not in stop and go traffic. You are saying if you shut off the sonar it starts back up later? Have you shut off the driver protection (with snow mode or with the button on the steering wheel)?

Yes, once I hit the "P" sonar off button in the top screen to silence the sonar, the next stop I make it's back on. It appears to be a one time silence.

Driver protection is off. And yes, in snow mode.

If im not mistaking, you can set it so that your navigation screen doesnt change to the camera when the sonar is alerting. You can also try to lower the sensitivity of the sensors or turn them off completely via the intouch settings.

This was a big pain in the @$$ for me this weekend too. We had a little snowfall on Saturday night while I was driving and the camera kept coming on and beeping. The sensors weren't covered though when I was driving. When i stopped, the bumper was clean, just wet like if it were rain. Is it really picking up the snowflakes as it was falling?

I don't want to change the settings for the camera but I might lower the sensitivity to see if that helps.

I'm going to bring this up when I take my car in for service on Friday.

I discovered this wonderful "feature" of the car this morning while driving to my office in our first snowfall here in Albany--just a dusting. The car had been in my garage and there was very little snow hitting the front bumper. Driver aids were off. It behaved the same way both in snow mode and standard.

This is really ridiculous. Who designed this system? Actually, who designed and tested most of the electronic systems on this car?

Also, is anyone else concerned about the possibility that these false reads may cause the vehicle to think a collision is imminent and emergency brake? I have three times had the car randomly stop short while driving in my parking lot with no snow, rain or anything in front of the car. This was with driver aids turned on.

I have largely stopped using these features for which I paid thousands because I am concerned they may do something unpredictable and cause an accident. Not to mention that the lane assist makes the car sway and the intelligent cruise control seems to go on and off the throttle in second intervals when it should be holding a constant speed, which after a while is enough to make you feel car sick. (At least one other person observed the same; dealership is puzzled). Did I mention that 9 out of 10 times the car also won't let me engage the regular cruise control--it just stays on ICC?

Yes, really enjoying the new car and all its "features."

Could you please detail the problem. Is it that there was no apparent difference between snow mode and standard?

I have found that std cruise control will engage only if all the drivers aids are off.

Now this is a bit concerning. I don't want automatic heavy breaking when there is snow / ice around. No snow yet here in NJ however, with this thread I'm seriously considering turning off the [anti] safety features. I'll take this up with my consumer affairs contact during our weekly conversations.

It's not engaging the braking. It's only beeping / displaying the camera when it's snowing and accumulating on the front bumper.

At least for me.

Have you tried turning off the Moving Object Detection? That is what is going on.
