Even if you put a simple kit and have a problem, there are canbus power boxes available as an extra for less than a tenner..
Would even fit a electromagnetic system if i could find out if it would work as they are simple to fitJust the sort of thing u connect to your reverse light, four or five drilled into the bumper, mic in the cabin somewhere
Showing my ignorance here - but do the electromagnetic ones only detect metal in other cars as it gets closer?Or here's an electromagnetic one claimed as canbus compatible: No Drills Holes Invisible In Bumber Electromagnetic Rear Parking Sensor Kit -UK | eBay
The big problem with the electromagnetic ones is they rely on motion to disrupt the magnetic field. So, they're not great for things that move slowly. The other problem is they are not very granular. So you get told there is something there, and how close, but not where it is. If they were as good as the ultrasonic ones all the car manufacturers would use them. The fact that they don't speaks volumes in my opinion.Showing my ignorance here - but do the electromagnetic ones only detect metal in other cars as it gets closer?
