Works as required – Car Electromagnetic Back-up Parking Sensor - Black (DC 12V) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
NO DRILLING OR UGLY SENSORS!!!! Installation is very easy. If access to inside of bumper is not easily accessible, remove bumper like I did. Most bumpers remove very easily - just google your car and I am sure you will find it easy.
Cons:
Close range - I would use it only to first warning, as final warning is less than 10cm - I really do not need closer than 20cm and it works good for that.
Other:
I installed this in my front bumper, thus needed to install switch for when I am not parking, as bumps and sharp turns also gives a warning. For rear bumper connection to reverse lamp the kit includes all that is required. Not as accurate as external sensors with display, but if you can park and just want some help in close spots this works brilliantly. For reverse I would rather use a wireless cam, as I have installed them on 4 different vehicles and it is just better, but for front or classic cars this is brilliant!
Bottomline:
If you want a completely hidden system, get this one. If you regularly reverse park in tight possitions and do not mind a display on your dashboard, rather get a full wireless reverse camera kit. As my car already has a factory reverse cam, but no input for another front cam, this is perfect for my Scooby.
