aftermarket parking sensor - audible only or display
#1
Looking to fit some parking sensors to the Berlingo.

There appear to be two types ultrasonic, and electromagnetic. Does anyone have experience of both?

Looking at fitting the dolphin sensors, with the canbus interface, which activate the front sensors when travelling less than 6mph. Any one tried this on their berlingo?

Unfortunately, no but had the Dolphin ones on a couple of cars and they were great, but more important was the speed in which the company sent out replacement sensor free of charge

Agree Steve.
If you can't reverse something 13 feet long (it's actually less than 7 feet from the driving seat to the rear bumper), perhaps it's time to take the bus?

Some folk have Medical / other problems which can limit their ability to fully mobilise and I expect parking sensors can help immensely.
Just a thought,...or taxi drivers :whistle:

Well said taxi - don't be too hard on those with medical conditions folks. Even the young and fit can suffer a temporary illness or injury that makes full movement difficult. I'd rather someone relied on sensors and got the manoeuvre right than they took a flyer and damaged Bernie the Bus.

How much movement do you need to look in your mirrors?
Don't think disability has anything to do with it. With respect.
Last time I drove an HGV with a 44foot trailer (a while ago, granted) don't remember that having parking sensors...
Gimmick.

Gimmick.

I use my mirrors for initial reversing into slot then rely on the analogue reversing sensor on the rear of my vehicle.

It is 50mm in diameter and located centrally on the towbar assembly.

It has never failed me yet and is basically easy to operate...

Depending on speed of reversing it gives out a slight tap and resistance to movement upon complete closure of the gap at low speeds whereas if I choose to reverse at speed, closure of the gap is met with an automatic braking effect and usually the sound of fracturing number plate or ABS plastic bumper on the other vehicle... simples, don't need all this modern techy stuff..:whistle::whistle:
