If money isn't a problem, I'd go for the camera, what you see is what you get, With a parking sensor you either get a beeping noise or some flashing lights.

but i was thinking hearing a beep might be easier than trying to concentrate on parking and looking at a screen at same time?

way i figure it both have pros and cons was hopin some members might have or used one or the other to comment :thumbsup:

I prefer parking sensors as they allow you to use your normal mirrors while still getting information back about your parking distance. I find reverse cameras on cars a bit of a gimmick especially in low light. Parking sensors are only going to pick up information at certain points though so you need to be careful if there's something thin sticking out in the area you're reversing into, this is where a camera will have an advantage.

thanks, is kinda what im thinking also. Obviously will still have mirrors and common sense so thin things shouldnt be a issue just figured it would be a helping hand cause where i work we have a tiny car park and double or triple park cars very close together in order to maximise space :thumbsup:

Although I don't have parking sensors on my car, they do work surprisingly well - simple and effective.

Sensors every time.
#15
never used any of them, but i also vote for sensors, though i dunno if the sound is gonna be annoying after a certain time.
#16
Got the parking sensors built in,they pick up things quite low down you sometimes can't see or don't notice in the mirrors,recycling boxes in my street mainly.Can't fault them.
#17
thanks guys thinking sensors it is!

now to decide which, dont want ones which require driling so im looking at the halfords meta sensor for £49.99 anyone have this?
