Which back-up sensors are the best?

I am getting used to the back-up camera, but I need all the help I can get. Thanks!

Hmmmm.......I guess that was a lame question? Do you just get used to the back-up camera and so not use/need the sensors. Find them annoying? Love them? Anyone?

So you're asking what we think of the factory back up sensors, if I understand your question (?)

I have them and they have saved my bacon at least once (when I was backing into a camp spot with a tree that I was misjudging through the backup camera). The only issue I've had with them is when some melt water froze over them and I got a caution light on the dash. After I cleaned the sensors off they worked fine. When I'm at a gas station washing the back window I give them a quick wipe off.

So, I'd say the backup camera is much more useful than the sensors, but they have their place.

Wnybiker: Sorry, no, to clarify...My van did not come with back-up sensors, but I really feel like I need them urgently. So I am looking for advice on which brand(s) of sensors are good. I assumed that others had the same issue.

Phil: How in the world to you back up without either!!!!! You must at least have rear windows then, huh?

I got rear windows but that's only good for parking lot light poles and not backing over someone.

Daytime is easy
Night time different story, but I don't need to drive a night.
