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 bought this while on offer for wifes Freelander 1 after an unfortunate nudge into a Merc. The connection instructions are brief but with basic knowledge of car electrics the connection are easy to make. The rest of the instructions are useful and the most difficult part is finding discrete cable routes for the sensor wires and display cable. I managed to run it alongside the cars main wiring loom after removing a fair amount of trim. Its worth checking behind the rear bumper to ensure there is 25 mm clearance for the sensors. The product works fine and I wish I had fitted it sooner, may have saved me a few quid!

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 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 These little sensors are superb, merging easily into your vehicles bumper skirts or rear fenders with the quality of factory installed products. Everything you need is in the kit including hole cutter and the wiring could not be easier. Just find a connection onto one of your rear reversing bulbs and crimp or solder it on. Wires are then discreetly fed under the carpets to wherever you decide to place the neat little display with built in buzzer. I bought mine 2 years ago for my flashy coup??? and will now order another for its replacement next week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a really good product,easy to fit,works well does at it says it makes bleeps at intervals as you get closer to object it also shows coloured lights left to right. i put the light emitting bleeper to the rear above the parcel shelf so that when reversing you also can see the lights in the mirror, which tell you what side of the car the obstruction is on,handy when someone walks past you while reversing ie children old people etc. i would rate this product 5 out of 5

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

Can you tell me if these will work on a Mercedes Sprinter Long wheel base fitted with rear T-Safe bumper bar. These would be mounted in the T-Safe bar itself of course.

Asked by: Dean30
Unfortunately, we are unable to guarantee compatibility. I would check with the manufacturer of the vehicle.
