Default Park Sense for the Front

Ok, I was thinking it would be cool to have the park sense in the front like I have in the rear for when parking in lots and don't want to either back in or find a spot out of the way so I don't "bump" someone's car with my front bumper.

Not in the form it's in. It it was setup for closer detection, then it may have some limited use, but right now it detects too soon on all stages. If the detection was at 18", 12" and 6"...then maybe....but I think a front cam would be far more beneficial.

I agree on the distance thing, for that matter I'd start at 12".

I have never just bumped into a car. i was taught to learn the spacial awareness around the vehicle, to me this is what separates the good (skilled) drivers and the rookies!

It's called two eyes, a windshield and common sense.

If you need them in the front,you better pay a little closer attention to were you`re going.
