Ok, I broke down and ordered the trailer hitch mount doppler radar backup sensor. I got sick of my cheapo $99 wireless backup sensors I installed as they just give too many false beeps backing out of my driveway everyday because of it's slope so I've grown immune to the beeps. I get them in a week so I'll post pics and a report when installed.

As one with a rear camera only, I must say that the camera doesn't serve the same function as the backup sensors.

The camera is great when parking or hitching a trailer or backing up in tight spaces.

For reversing in larger parking lots, etc. I find that looking through the back window gives me a better sense of my surroundings, but when I do that I can't see what is directly behind the truck.

I'm looking forward to hearing about the sensors.

I'm looking forward to your pictures and report. I wonder if the radar will remind me that I have a trailer behind be when I back up. Sounds dumb but half the pick-ups around here have the back finders bent in.
