A client from Tigard recently contacted Kingpin Car & Marine Audio in Wilsonville about adding some GLA45 parking sensors to their 2016 Mercedes-Benz. In typical fashion, we set up a time for them to stop by our facility for a consultation appointment. As vehicles and technology get more advanced, we have found that dedicated appointments are the only way to give our clients the time and attention they deserve. This approach also allows us to better understand the needs of each and every prospective client.
After speaking with this client, we determined that parking sensors would be the best solution and that for the best in safety, installing them in the front and rear was ideal. The client liked our idea so we set a time to begin working on the GLA.
Parking Sensors Save Lives and Protect Your Vehicle from Damage
Parking sensors use a unique technology that involves ultrasonic waves to “see” a person or object near the vehicle. As you get closer to the person or object, an audible speaker goes from a slow beep to a fast beep, and eventually a constant beep. You now have much better depth perception of things around you.
Every year, drive experience millions of dollars in damage because of unsafe backing. We have all backed up our vehicles and wondered how close we are to an object we can actually see, but what about things in our blind spot? When you back into something, you are now responsible for two problems: your vehicle and whatever you just hit. Even worse, every year, children are tragically killed because they were in the blind spot of a driver near them.
The good news is parking sensors help to eliminate all these problems.
Kingpin GLA45 Parking Sensors Look Factory-equipped
The FIT sensors that we chose not only work great, but also have a factory fit and finish. As you can see in the pictures, they look as if Mercedes installed them as a factory option.
Front Sensors Add the Ultimate in Protection
While many of our installations involve rear sensors only, for the ultimate in protection, we advise all our clients to add front ones as well. In this Mercedes, the client liked the idea of front sensors, knowing it would allow for safe parallel parking as well as aid with pull-in types of parking. As the front bumper gets close to an object, the audible alerts provide notification of when it is safe to stop, thus avoiding damage to their SUV.
