I have quite a bit of experience with aftermarket parking sensors. All of it has been awful. Maybe there are good ones out there, but I have not encountered one.

Dunno. As I said, maybe there are good ones. Don't waste your time with cheap ones, though.

Honestly, I would put my efforts into a good camera setup. There are very good systems available, with all-around views. With a good enough camera view, you won't miss the parking sensors. The 360-degree "bird view" cameras are pretty cool--pair them with a good-sized display and you will be all set.

IF you mean proximity sensors that can be tied to an audible alarm...look at Echomaster..

I have them on my 2012 RS Adventurous.... here's a picture... they go right into the bumper.....a good electronics shop should know what to do... it's all integrated with my back up camera.......

Thanks, Avanti
I was a little intimidated by the cost of those things, but if they work as promised, they are certainly worth the money
