Electro-Magnetic Parking Sensors
I would like to fit some rear parking sensors, but don't like the idea of drilling into the rear bumper
and have had and seen bad experiences with Ultasonic type (2 or 4 sensors) sytems, which fail to detect fences/walls etc.
I have seen an Electro-magnetic type advertised
Car Parking Sensor Direct | Taurus T123 Car Parking Sensor | No Drill Parking Sensor System
which use a self adhesive strip which is applied to the inside of the bumper and allegedly provides full coverage of the rear of the car without "dead spots"
Has anyone fitted/used these sensors and if so how easy is it to fit and does it work reliably?
They recommend that the rear bumper is removed to make fitting easier - has anyone got tips on how to do this on a 2007 grand scenic (7 seat - no spare tyre)
I have also heard that recent Scenics (like most cars) use multiplexed wiring. Does this mean that the reversing light 12V supply is more difficult to "tap into" as this is needed to power the sensor box?
