Many people think that if they did not order a new vehicle that included a parking sensor
system that they will have to do without one. This is wrong. There are many aftermarket
parking sensor systems that you can find that will help you avoid minor accidents and
fender benders. There are a few things to think about when you do shop for a parking
sensor system so that you are sure to have purchased the right system for your needs.
One thing to consider is the kind of vehicle you are driving. Not every system is intended
for use with every vehicle type. You want to pick a system that is designed for your type
of vehicle. Most after-market systems are not made to be used with a specific make or
model of car although they may be designed to be used with a specific kind of vehicle
such as an SUV, a truck or a minivan.
Front and Rear parking Sensors
You may also want to consider how many sensors you need. Some systems may have
rear bumper sensors and others may have systems that cover both the front and back
of the vehicle. If you find that you are backing up most often but do not have a problem
with obstacles that are located in the front of the vehicle you may be able to get away
with a system that uses fewer sensors and which focuses on the back of the car more
than the front.
Wired and Wireless Systems
You may also want to consider how the sensor display communicates with the control box.
The control box registers the signals from the sensors and sends it to the display. There
are systems that are designed to be wired to the control box and others work wirelessly.
You may find that there is a lot more installation work that is needed with a system which
is not wireless.
Audio and Visual Controls
Another consideration is the kind of information that the display will tell you. There are
displays that show how far you are from an object and others that simply beep or make
a sound when you get too close to a foreign object. Different people will have their own
preferences about which system they prefer to use. It may be worthwhile for you to view
several different types of systems so that you can tell which you prefer before you go to
the expensive of purchasing a specific system.
