After some pretty low tech options, the next parking aid to make the list is this high tech beast from Measurements Ltd. Rather than a laser parking assist however, this model uses ultrasonic sound waves to help you park your car – see, we told you it was high tech!
The two units are mounted to the wall with screws. The sensor is mounted roughly level with the front of the car, the second mounted somewhere you can easily see it. Once you’ve set it up, the next time you come to park it will activate instantly, whilst the sensor throws out ultrasonic sound waves to detect the car, the other unit first flashes a green light to indicate the device is working. The green light turns to amber (orange) when the car is within 8 feet of its perfect parking spot, then turns to red to tell you the car is in position – so don’t go any further!
Installation and set up are both very simple, and the device runs on simple AA batteries too, which makes it all even easier. It is small and discreet, easy to set up and even easier to operate. With a price tag of around 20 bucks it is easy to see why this is one of the more popular parking sensors on the market today.
