Nowadays, most modern cars come with many advanced features. That’s why many people don’t know about most of the advanced features of cars, the APS feature is one of them. So, in this article, we will tell you about what APS means on a car.
What Does APS Mean on a Car?
You might be heard about parking sensors in a car. So, APS is the second name for parking sensors. APS stands for Acoustic Parking System. If a car has front and back parking sensors, in that vehicle this feature can be called APS.
APS sounds very different, that’s why most car companies use “the Front and back Parking sensors” word instead of “the APS” word. This feature mostly comes in luxury cars, in budget cars it usually does not come. Only back parking sensors come in budget cars. Most cars come with a button that you can use to on and off the APS feature.
Advantages of APS Feature in a Car
As we told you the APS and front/back parking sensors are the same thing. The main advantage of APS is, that it helps to park a car easily. When someone is parking a car and the parking sensors are on, then when a car gets near to any object, due to parking sensors, a sound will start beeping.
The sound becomes higher when something gets much closer. So, due to the beep sound, a driver can easily understand how far a car is from an object.
Disadvantages of APS Feature in a Car
Although, APS does not have any major disadvantages. But, sometimes the beep sound of the parking sensor becomes irritating. For example, if you are in traffic, and APS/ front-back parking sensors are on, then every time when the other vehicle comes near to your vehicle, the beep sound will start, and it will become irritating.
