|Park Distance Control|
|Backup warning 4 sensors, acoustic warning function. The park distance control, with 4 sensors and acoustic warning function provides additional safety when parking. This park distance control is easy to install and effectively helps avoid unsightly damage to the bumpers when reversing. A short sound emitted when reverse gear is engaged indicates that the system is active. The closer the vehicle comes to the obstacle, the more frequently the signal is emitted. The microprocessor-controlled park distance control function is automatically activated when reverse gear is selected and checks for errors using the self diagnostic function. Sensors can be painted so they blend unobtrusively into the overall vehicle image. Electrical connection to the reversing light is easy requiring no routing of cables to the front of the vehicle. The park distance control function has an intelligent set-up function. For example, rigid towing hitches are not incorrectly detected as obstacles. Complete with control unit, four sensors, sound source, connection cables, fitting material, fitting and operating instructions.|
This kit retails for about $600 including installation and it is available at your friendly local Volkswagen dealer .
