I have a parking camera on my car and the wife has parking sensors on hers. Personally i prefer the camera as you get to see what's going on behind your car and, with the way they have fitted mine, you get a good view at least 1 car length either side of the rear bumper (great when reversing out of a car parking space). Direct sunlight can be a problem but you can adjust the screen brightness to counter some of the problem.
The parking sensors do my head in with all that beeping but my wife prefers them as it doesn't involve watching a screen, although it does cost a bit more when someone smashes your bumper as my wife found out.
i can park my car with less than a centimetre to spare using the camera but can't get my wife's car anywhere near as close.
so i guess i'm saying it's personal preference.
does your local dealer have any way of letting you test drive cars with the options fitted?
