I bought the two sensor system for my Prius C. No real blind spots but with progressing arthritis in my neck, turning to look is getting more difficult. These work very nicely for my needs. It would be nice if they added a feature that activated both rear sensors when backing up. Parking lots are getting scary these days.

I later bought the upgraded front and rear sensor model for my sister's Honda Odessey. The upgraded model is definitely a better product, where real blinds spots are involved.

Can't say more about durability.., except the covers on the indicator lights seem a possible weak spot.

Features... The indicator lights light up when something is in your blind spot and if the turn signal is turned on there is a single beep beep to draw your attention.

Installation time at a local car alarm & stereo store was $90 for an hour and a half labor.

I bought two for wife and me. They work fine except neither will "catch" when you want to stop before they are fully wound or unwound. So, to charge my iPhone, I have to pull the wires out and then put a rubber band around the unit to keep it from winding back and pulling the phone off the table. I've tried every way possible to get the unit to lock partway wound, without any luck. So far the springs are holding up.

Had the blind spot monitoring system installed back in February in our 2011 Infiniti QX56. Great value for the cost of the product + install (total of both was less than $700 as compared to the technology package of $4k+). We had it professionally installed and they did a great job. While the sensors are black and our other sensors are platinum gray, it doesn't stick out like a sore thumb. There are 2 modes - 1) signals light up and beep only when the turn signal is on left/right 2) signal light and beeps all the time whenever any objects are within 10'. We have ours set to 1). Only issue we have had so far is that it gets a little oversensitive in very heavy rain, but that's not a horrible thing. If a factory blind spot system is not available at a reasonable price, I would highly recommend this as a viable option.

I bought this unit for my wife's commuter car, and wasn't sure how it would perform. We gave it to a local install shop, and were pretty happy with the kit when we tried it out. It works well on our roads, and alerts the driver if there is any object on the side of the vehicle. I found this handy in close parking spots, where there might be a short post or bush which is hidden in the blind spot.

It does work well for the intended purposes, as long as you realize it will give some detections even if it isn't another vehicle in your blind spot. We personally love it and would recommend it.

I purchased this unit when it was first released. I assume I received one of the very first units available. The kit came almost exactly as pictured, and seems of very good quality. The build of the controller units and sensors are very good, as are all the connectors and bindings. All the critical connections have heat-shrink to seal them up. Everything looks to be plug and plug for the most part, except for the power and signal wires.

The unit works great. We had it professionally installed and used it on a weekend road trip. We were thrilled at how well it worked, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone considering it.

It's a must have for all the vehicles we have moving forward. I will be grabbing another kit for my other car soon.
