The Backstopperâ„¢ CA-5018 is a front parking sensor system that monitors the front of your vehicle and detects any objects while parking and alerts you with an LED display and audible tones if the system detects an obstacle. As the vehicle moves closer to the object the tones will get more and more steady and the display will read out the distance until you are only inches away.

The CA-5018 is a 4-sensor system that can also work as a 2-sensor system if the bumper does not have adequate space for all four sensors. Combined with features such as automatic audio mute, self-test and learning functions, the system is ideal for cars with front metal bumpers or any front metal bars.

This system comes an LED display so the driver can see how far they are from an object. The sensors can be painted to match the color of the vehicle as well.

Awesome product.

September 23, 2013

I installed this on H2 Hummer. I read many reviews before purchasing it. this unit was a very easy install and I had no problems. Once installed it works flawlessly every time. the visual display looks slim and Like it came from the factory.

Great value I had Best Buy install it
Good quality product but check if you can actually put it in the bumper of your car. Should be high enough so you don't get false readings

Works well.

I ordered the CA-5018 for my model S. It works really well. I mounted the LED display right above the mirror. It was professionally installed and works well.

Can this work alongside collision warning systems?
Joe d on Feb 22, 2017
Best Answer: We have our sensors mounted on the front bumper and on the rear license plate. They are positioned to detect when any corner of the car gets too close to an object. They would work independent of any collision warning system. They are not perfect but designed to assist when parking. We just use the audio beep warning, not the LED display.
