They work very well on my '05 Ody, no adjustments, they just work. Small objects like poles it might not catch as the signal is deflected rather than being bounced back and detected. For large objects like humans, cars, walls... it works fine. It starts off with a beeping tone that beeps faster and faster the closer you get and finally goes to a solid tone when you're roughly a foot away from the object.laserfan said:I looked at the installation instructions for these and am frankly astonished by how much work/disassembly is involved. Bongus how long will your dealer take to put these in? What a big job.
Having not bought a new car myself for a decade or so (!) I wonder who here knows about these things. How well do they work? What "range" do they intend to sense? Are there any sensitivity adjustments involved?
Seem like a good thing to have to me, especially given the relatively poor visibility to the rear w/the Ridge, provided of course they work well. I wonder, apart from avoiding backing-into posts & such, will these sensors detect kids' toys (e.g. a tricycle)? Someone here pls bring me into the 21st century!
