gotovamsee thanks for the info.

Today I visited few accesories shops on minister road ... each shop guy was recommending their own fav brand.
One was saying circuit-i, other autocop, other-minda.

One guy said RedSoul and even went on to say RD is "just another ordinary Indian company ... go for autocop, RedSoul .. they are all world-class brands!

Absolutely Autocop is a global brand but certainly must be expensive than RD else can be taken for a doubt. RD introduced these reverse sensors and camera well before Autocop introduced them to india.

Identify genuine RD products using its 3D holograms. Better contact RD distributor himself on minister road for better deals.

Its upto you and your budget.

Guys,

got Autocop's Park Pro installed on my car. Why choose Autocop over Voyager(only another brand that was available) was
  1. Autocop is a known brand.
  2. Clip-on internal mirror was grey in colour; matches my car interiors.
  3. The mirror has on-off switch for both beeper and display; fellow BHPians suggested this control is necessary.
  4. Silver sensors; matches my car colour.
Drawback:
is the clip-on mirror vibrates a lot! I knew this beforehand as I had read it on this thread. Seriously looking at ways to arrest this vibration.

has anybody tried a webcam conversion to RCA for camera enabled HU?

or any suggestions for a decent reversing camera?
I'm assuming the best option would be for a fisheye type lensed one,get a good peripheral view.

Default Re: Reverse camera or Sensor ?

My Swift Dzire has a high boot. and rear visibility is very bad. So After lightly nudging a Indigo while reversing the other night, decided a parking sensor would be my next buy. So back to team bhp for research.

Now after going through 27 pages of this thread wasn't convinced of the present system. i.e. ultrasonic sensors, camera, display on IRVM and/or dashboard display.

Found a great solution (mentioned by sohail99) is an electromagnetic sensor bieng sold on ebay at http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=170434090114 and the manufacture's website here Electromagnetic Front & Rear Parking Sensors | Reverse Sensor

I wonder why it is not popular in India. Has anyone on teambhp come across one?

Default Re: Reverse camera or Sensor ?

Guys, a simple query -

I have booked a Fiat Punto 90hp & my car is being delivered this month end. I want to install rear sensors (no camera).

1) Which brand/make/model should I go for?

2) I somehow dislike the display of the rear sensors fitted over the internal rear view mirror. I would be more happy with a slim strip of display in one corner of the dash indicating the distance/proximity.

3) Since my car is white, I want the sensors to be body coloured.

I have ordered for reverse sensors as accessory at the FIAT dealer but i wish to cancel that since I am not sure of the brand (the accessory guy acts fishy) & also the display is on the IRVM. Max budget is 5k.

something from amazon, or cheaper still, dealextreme?
RD may give you something for 4k, i think.

edit: oh yeah, clear the external installation(ie, non dealer's end) with regard to warranty et al.

Check AutoCop once, when I checked out in the local car market in HYD sometime back, I remember faintly that it was priced around 2.5K ( I may be wrong) but definitely below 4K.

I bought the same one from the manufacturer directly and will be installing it in 2-3 weeks. I will write more about this product after using it.

Couldn't wait so fitted "crosshair" brand of reverse sensor from Rhyme and rhythm Colaba. After some initial hiccups (2 sensors not working and giving continuous sound) the system is working fine and for those looking to see how it looks in the IRVM here is a video taken while reversing in my garage with the left garage door closed BTW The measurement of distance is very accurate.

Default Requirement of a " rear eye" for my car

Guys,
Today when I was reversing the car in a parking area, I couldn't see a small child ( around 2 years ) standing just behind the car. Luckly somebody alarmed me and the little one was not hit. Thank GOD

I feel the requiement of an accessory which will give a clear view of the rear side of the car ( to get a view at a lower angle ). Can anyone suggest a solution?

My car is i10 Asta
