My headunit has a function where you can install a back up camera and use the screen as the monitor. The wiring would be beyond me, but I would live to put a camera on the rear activated by being in reverse, and one on the front for watching the lip while parking (I guess activated by a toggle)

You have to turn the unit on for it to work?
That will be a major hurdle for the forgetful
and spatial recognition challenged driver.
First, this is a good product in that it's innocuous and very reasonably priced. For drivers who are starting out this would be perfect.

Beyond that, I agree with you totally....If you need this product, you don't know your car as well as you think you do or you are easily distracted (cell phones, eating, trying to look cool etc).

Not knocking the product because yes, curb feelers used to be a 'thing' and in some cases it makes perfect sense but, if you rely on all the electronic gizmos and could not handle the car otherwise, you should not be driving said car.

ABS is one though that I feel is plus because in a full on panic situation, who has the right mind set to 'pump' the brakes and who can pump them more efficiently than a computer who's one meaning in life is to do just that...pump the brakes to avoid a lock up and let you focus on steering the car or positioning yourself for airbag deployment...

Not enirely true. I park every day in directional parking (angled spots) and if you back in you will get a ticket. Pretty annoying, but I can see where this could be handy for getting close to the curb.

Just listen and when you hear a loud scraping sound, you've gone too far. Or, turn your radio up super loud and then you dont have to hear it.

My mom bought me one of these for Christmas (not sure why but thoughtful nethertheless). I had it installed on my old GT/CS bumper, but now I'm switched over to a Roush and don't have a place to mount it yet. I will say it's a great product, easy to use and fairly easy to install. As well as curbs, it helped me know when I was about to scrape leaving a steep driveway and saved me a couple times. After using it awhile it kind've trains you to know where the front bumper is and I'm proud to say after five months in city driving I've only scraped the underside of my new bumper ONCE. I'd recommend it even if you think you're some ultimate badass driver who never scrapes their car.
