I’ll read through the manual at some point but can anybody advise what the beeps I occasionally hear might be? Sometimes a single beep and sometimes a double. There doesn't seem to be any obvious reason and no dashboard warning light.
Don’t think it’s my dashcam but will check that also.

a far-fetched one - but did you install a smoke/CO2 alarm? Nothing else that emits a beep.

I did but its not them. I suspect the Blackvue dashcam? Have changed a couple of settings so will see if that’s fixed it. Thanks.

I had the same and it turned out to be the warning beep made by the media unit when it loses the RDS traffic signal. It can be turned off in settings.

Ah, could be? Can you disable it?

The door locks can be enabled with VCDS to single and double beep when opening and closing the locks. We have this set.

But I guess you might hear the activation of the locks from inside the vehicle.

The beeps were set because the key was so sensitive, the locks would open/close when the key was held or placed inside a pocket.

I get them as a distance warning from the ACC. Together with a very small graphic in the centre of the dash.

Ah, another possibility. Will check next time it happens. Thanks

Took me a while to work out what it was. Another one is for exceeding the maximum speed you have set in the system.

Thanks Steve. Don’t believe i’ve set a max speed. Last occurrence was at slow speed approaching a junction.

Have you been very close to something whilst driving? Narrow lane? Even when driving the side, front and rear "parking" sensors are still active. Quite annoying.

Could be the culprit :)

Would side assist do the same thing?
I think side assist specifically detects vehicles in the blind spots rather than things that are very, very close to the vehicle. When the "parking" sensors detect something a picture of the vehicle is activated in the main screen showing you which sensor has been activated. These seem to be permanently activated, even when driving. I assume at higher speeds they deactivate.

Is it caused by a satnav point of interest proximity warning?
