Take a look at the reverse sensors + reverse camera combination. I got the City's pure reverse sensors changed to the above combination and the reversing is very easy now.

Somebody else had a brilliant idea of using this as a regular rear view camera by connecting it be on always.

Had it been my Marina, I would have tried that myself.

IMO the reverse camera does not give the exact distance from the viewers perspective but the reverse sensor does what say guys since but i dont know much of reverse camera.

Geeash! The ring light reverse parking sensor is nothing but it has got LED which looks like ring. The best part is when ever you get closer the lights starts to change colours i.e the more closer you get and for each distance the led glows in different colours. Totally we get 6 sensors, 2 for the front and 4 for the rear. The led glows when you press brake also, during night time that really looks cool, ill put the pictures when i take them. The cost came around Rs.5500/- and the Make is RD and it was installed by Professional RD guy and you can get it in GP Road but you should specifically ask for the RD Guy since lots of guys will be roaming around there and i think there are lots of models in RD.

That is why I asked him to go for the combination if he finds it good. The particular combination I have is the camera + 4 rear sensors. I was told that the front sensors are not available with camera.

Both the sensors as well as the camera are to aid you in parking. The suggestion was to check it out as an option.

Personally, I find the front sensors more as a nuisance than real help in bumper to bumper traffic.

Those glowing sensors appear real cool as well as VERY practical too.

If someone is really tailgating you without maintaining proper distance, these glowing lights will make them slow down. Excellent!

I want them.

23.7 kmpl? The punto should regularly return 18kmpl at least. Just shows how badly zigwheels got it wrong.

Lovely pictures there. Linea looks amazing!

You got it wrong. The front sensor gets activated only when you press the brake little bit hard (if i wanna check distance only i press it hard) otherwise little pressure on the brake is fine. No nuisance for me.

yeah Neo ! the glowing sensor light is too strong and sharp, it irritates the eyes of the person tailgating

hello amit ! i drove her between 55 to 65 Kms/hr and i did not change gear of press brake often and that did the trick i think

I would like to know how 0-100 kms is being calculated on standard. Because today on Thiruvallor - Thirupathi Road i tried my self with a guy sitting next to me and taking readings and these are the datas obtained.

1st Attempt : 16.2 Seconds.
2nd Attempt : 14.4 Seconds.
3rd Attempt : 15.5 Seconds.
4th Attempt : 14.8 Seconds.

I think there is still room for improvement. I would like to know what are the standard readings? Next time i try it i will try to make a video.

What is the meaning of underpowered ?
