I've just remembered at the end of my test drive I tried to be clever and reverse into a very large space only using the rear view camera, I only nearly took a Micra that was parked some distance away with me!!!

If you've not used one before it can take a while to get used to it, but once you are you'll wonder how you ever managed with one

I did an amazing parallel park the other week in a space only just bigger than the car (probably 50cm clearance on one side and 20cm on the other), wheels up against the kerb and everything. No reversing camera required!

During my test drive, I only put it in reverse to show my wife why exactly we needed to get the premium pack - but I don't think I'd be able to rely on it for anything other than judging the distance to the kerb/other cars.

What are people's experience of it? Especially when turning into a space. I'm assuming the guide lines are fixed(?)

I had a reversing sensor dealer-fitted in addition to the camera.
The camera just shows what's there - it does alert you the way the beeper does.

I'm always a bit wary of a device which encourages people to look away from where they are going... you can get tunnel vision by only looking at what the camera sees, and miss other things (like a bollard or obstacle in the corner)

I was really hoping that being able to see something would be as good as a beeping sensor - better in some cases such as raised curbs and posts that might not be picked up.

I can see me testing it out with some soft, mobile objects to begin with!

It's a boon to me as I'm the world's worst parker. I can now reverse-park. No problem with it at all.

Except it is so damned easy that you can forget the ruddy huge wing mirrors and they don't always fit the space selected. Oops. I have scraped one because I wasn't vigilant.

I was also thinking of getting rear parking sensors, but after exposing the case here in the forum i changed my mind and decided to keep the money as everybody told me that after get used to, the mirros and the camera are excellent. I guess i will soon prove it...

How does your rear bumper look now? Any pics?

I have two reversing cameras fitted actually... one in my left eye socket, and one in my right eye socket! You can even transfer them from car to car :p
