Its really a pain to seach for the manuals of these chinese made electronic stuff. Moreover, since his friend got rid of the packing as well so I doubt he would be knowing the model and make

Why don't you do the trial and error independently.. i.e. outside the car?

Clip the sensors on say, a wooden plank. Connect the unit to a battery and test against and obstacle to check for the correct distance. Once you are sure of the separation, cut the holes in bumper and install .

there is nothing other than a serial number on it. if any one has installed a two sensor kit he can help. what i want to know is how much distance from each side should i install it so that when making a angled entry to tight spot it should sense.

I've used this earlier.
Install it in two level corners of the bumper.
Did u get a drill-bit with the package to drill out correct sized holes in ur bumper for the sensors?

I am assuming that you are trying to fit it on you Baleno. Frankly speaking 2 sensors wont give you enough coverage for the rear. Try placing them on the rear bumber on both side just before the bumper starts to curve.
Do a dummy install ( using double ended tape and all which doesnt require holes in the bumper ) to come up with the best location for the two sensors.

Basically you are in a D-I-Y mode...Why don't you go to a accessories guy and ask him to fit it over and pay him the labour. Will save a lot of hassle for you..

I have seen quotes from 2500 to 4500 for the six sensor types. The difference is the display end. The expensive ones have LCD the lower ones LED light.

Check on ebay.in you can find different models.


@Gigy i have a 2 sensor model on my palio. I will try and put the details tonight . Please PM me

hi gd1418,
nothing gives more pleasure more than you using things made or done by yourself, even if it dose not turn out perfect, but when someone is doing things for me i want no mistakes at any cost. so prefer diy mode. it has been a habit since childhood.
basically want it to supplement my reverse camera, two systems telling you are going to bang particularly in rains or fogged up windows is better.
