A few thoughts on my experience with reverse camera

I was often nervous of the sitation when I wanted to do reverse parking and I had to place a car in extremely narrow space. Most of us as not only was training this skill over and over again during the driving courses, but also had to present this maneuver when having the driving test. I handled to pass this victoriously but this didn’t solve 1 thing – I often felt terribly frightened each time I needed to do reverse parking. That thing worried me so badly that I subconsciously started to avoid reverse parking.
Last month I was dropping home my colleague. When we were looking for a parking space next to his apartment, he immediately noticed I was very terrified that I had to do a reverse parking. Nevertheless, he didn’t say a word then.

Days were passing by and I forgot about this situation in my car. Nevertheless, my colleague has a very good memory. On my birthday I received from him… bmw reverse camera f30! The present was accompanied with a handwritten card that said: “I am positive that you would like driving much more, if you don’t worry about a reverse parking so badly. With this camera you are going to see everything you want to see behind a car!”.

And you know what? He was right! I have been having that rear view camera f30 for 3 weeks now. And I love it! In comparison with ordinary car mirrors, this camera allows to detectmuch more as well as at much better angle. I don’t need to worry no more that there is area called “blind area” right behind the car. I can see all I need to reverse safely.

Moreover, when I was relying just on car mirrors, I was also scared about the fact that proportions and distance of the view that I could see in typical rear view mirrors was alwaysdistorted. Thanks to the reverse camera I do not have to speculate about distance anymore. I can check how much place exactly is still there and how far I could still reverse. To sum up, if you are scared of reverse parking, the rear view camera could be a perfect option for you too. I am very grateful for my friend that he gave that present to me. If I was aware before that such device exists, I wouldn’t have wasted all of that time trying to avoid reverse parking! If there is such an amazing tool that is able to make the life better, why not to buy that!
