BMW Style Parking Sensors and Display

Hey Guys,

A project for me at some point will be installing parking sensors on my FN2.

I got in my mates BMW and noticed he has a pretty swept up system (iDrive or something?) and was wondering whether it's possible to have a similar system with the output on the Rear-Camera part of my Double DIN SatNav. Having the image come out on the screen is not the difficult bit, mostly just finding the sensors and associated kit!

TBH it's probably more useful than a rear camera, but I was considering it as an alternative.

i had the above Parking distance control) on my 5 series and it wasnt accurate tbh, i hit a rear wall listening and look at the above display
A front end and rear end camera would be loads better
