Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought whilst on offer and having read the reviews, I thought I'd give it a go. It took me about 3 1/2 hours to fit on my wife's Ford Fiesta, but I'm meticulous with the planning and installation. Her car is black so we don't need to paint the sensors. In fact it was really easy to fit. Works really well, in fact I prefer it to the factory fitted version on my car as this version tells you the distance quite accurately as well as which side the obstacle is. The Beeper is situated in the display unit which I located on top of the dashboard and is a little loud though. Other than that, for the price and functionality, I cannot fault it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For the price I was prepared to be generous with what the kit would look like and how it would perform. I have however been very very pleased with the quality of the kit. The box and quality of the components looks great, instructions are simple enough and installation equally so. It took about one hour and 40 mins to complete. I installed it in a '56 plate honda jazz and the time was spent running the wires so they are hidden. In use it is accurate and clear, the display is a great bonus and the distance readout also a great bonus. The only feedback is that it is slightly tricky to mount as it needs a flat surface. Very pleased

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This unit is easy to fit. Comes with the dill bit needed to mount the sensors to your bumper. Fitted to a 02 Honda CRV. Due to the Spare wheel on the rear I decided to fit only 3 sensors. It works perfectly. I mounted the main body in the well at the back and took the power from the reverse light circuit. I mounted the display on top of my rear view mirror. I think its the perfect location as you can view the display with very little head movement. I have fitted a couple other reverse kits made from different companies,and the maplin unit has been the best so far. Got this at the sale price so it's a must buy at that price. Going to buy another unit to fit on another vehicle. Cant think of anything negative to say just buy it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought following other positive reviews and only just fitted to my vehicle and seems to be working ok so far. Relatively easy to fit - hardest part was running and hiding the huge amount of cables! Only dubious point before buying / fitting was the thought of the unit constantly bleeping when in reverse, but can confirm that that it remains silent if there is nothing immediately behind the vehicle and only starts to issue warning sounds when within a metre or so, and the chirps then become more persistant as you get closer to an obstacle.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from initially i bought the wirless option of this item which was so slow to react when parking it was unbelievable, i replaced with the wire version which is much quicker to react initially it was ok but as the months have gone on it gives spurious reading an example tonight it continually beeped at 4m on stopping and getting out of the car as i thought the bin men had left a bin in the way nothing to be seen any where near the car the readings are at random and all over the place the only reason i have left this item on the car is the 4 holes that would be left in the bumper i have purchased another car but will not be putting this item on this car it seems the old adage is best you pay for what you get

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great piece of kit which I collected from store. Very carefully protectively packed and presented in a substantial but attractively designed cardboard box. (No plastic here). It took the the best part of 4 hours to install it but I admit to being rather fastidious where neatness is concerned by removing the rear scuttle/bumper to fit the sensors and secure the wiring It does exactly what it says on the box and the distance warnings it gives on the dash display are incredibly accurate. Suffice to say I am very pleased with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Follow the easy fitting instructions . Splice in the reverse light power line everything else is ready labeled for plugging in. The kit is suprisingly accurate and worth fitting neatly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought this kit about a year ago and never got around to fitting it until this weekend! Excellent kit. Fitted to a 2000 VW Passat Estate. It's very accurate and a doddle to fit, with the exception of the display unit which is an odd shape (as mentioned in some other reviews) and I couldn't find anywhere to mount it on a Passat Dashboard, so I've hidden it in the boot, and just use the beeper to warn me! Still very happy for the price though! :) 9/10 (would have been 10 if the display was a more adaptable shape)

Will I be able to plug in just two sensors and it'll stil work correctly?

Asked by: Dave1233
I fitted this system to my car using just 2 sensors and it worked fine. The distance shown on the display is very accurate.

how do we identify sensors to power pack (which goes where) and in enclosed in the fitting pack were 4 rubber "O" rings with no placing instructions? 

Asked by: george
The sensors are marked A/B/C/D ... the very first illustration of the instruction manual shows the placing of the sensors from left to right and their designation. http://52.50.15.149/Downloads/user-manual-3983
