How to choose parking sensors
When choosing parking sensors, you need to pay attention to such criteria as: number of sensors, display type, display type and additional functions (control of “blind zones”, memory function, the ability to connect a rear-view camera and monitor, as well as the presence of a wireless display).
Parktronic-a device that helps the driver when parking. The kit PDC mainly includes the main unit, display and parking sensors. The principle of operation of the parking radar is simple: parking sensors check the space in front of you for obstacles and detecting they transmit information about the distance to the obstacle to the main unit, information from which is in turn displayed on the display.
When choosing a PDC, you should pay attention to its appearance. Types of Parktronic: Parktronic front, rear and combined. The front and rear parking sensors in most cases have 4 sensors in the kit, which are installed on the bumper. Combined parking sensors have from 6 to 12 parking sensors and are installed on the front and rear bumper. You can buy parking sensors in Odessa, Kharkov and Kiev on 130.com.ua with delivery in Ukraine.
Choosing parking sensors do not forget about the type of display and the presence of additional functions and features, such as: blind spot function, memory function, wireless display and the ability to connect a rear view camera.

More information about the number of sensors
The number of parking sensors control zones depends on the number of sensors. Conventional rear or front parking sensors come with 4 sensors for installation in the rear or front bumper, respectively. Combined Parktronic have a set of 6 sensors to 12.
In the minimum version (6 sensors), 4 sensors are installed on the rear bumper and 2 on the front bumper, since it is more important to know the information about what is happening behind the car, because the driver can control the situation in front of most cases.
In the maximum version (12 sensors), 4 sensors are installed on the front and rear bumper and 4 more sensors are installed in the so-called “blind zones”. "Blind zones" are those areas where the driver can not control the situation. In this case, the situation is controlled not only from behind or in front of the car, but also on the sides.

More information about display types
LED display in parking sensors basically displays only the distance to the obstacle and the three-color scale of approaching the obstacle.
LCD-display is more informative, it also displays the distance to the obstacle, in addition, some models have a “STOP” indicator, which lights up as close as possible to the obstacle. In addition, most Parktronic with LCD-display has a voice alert function.

More information about additional features
Memory Function . Parktronics with a memory function (intelligent parktronics) have the ability to memorize the location of the remote elements of the car (for cars with a tow bar or an external spare wheel). Also, these PDCs have the functions of preventing false alarms and self-diagnosis of sensors.
"Blind zones" are those areas where the driver can not control the situation. Parktronics with a function of control of "blind zones" have additional sensors in the kit, which are installed on the side of the bumper to control the situation at the side of the car. In this case, the situation is controlled not only from behind or in front of the car, but also on the sides.
Videoparktronic . Parktronic with the ability to connect a rearview camera and an additional monitor allow you to accurately control the essence of parking. The display of the radio or other device to which the parking sensors are connected will display information from the connected rear-view camera and the parking camera simultaneously. Ie, the screen will show the picture from the camera and the distance to the nearest obstacle with sound notifications when approaching the obstacle.
Wireless Display . Parktronics with a wireless display are best suited for minibuses or other "long" cars, as it happens that the length of the wire from the display is not enough to connect it to the main parking sensors. Wireless display does not need to be connected by cable to the unit. In this case, the display is connected only to the vehicle’s on-board network via the cigarette lighter to supply power.
