Backup Sensor for objects too close

Recommended Posts

My 2013 Transit Connect is now almost 3 years on the road. Thus far I have impacted two objects with the rear bumper. Both were tall/vertical, and both hit dead center. The first time it was a tall pine tree, and the second was the base of a light pole at the post office. In both cases, the objects were obscured by the join of the two rear doors. The bumper has a nice ding dead center, but otherwise the body/doors are unaffected.

This TC does not have a back sensor. What I really want/need is something that alerts me to either of two situations:

1. Any object within a minimum distance, while the transmission is in Reverse

2. Any object approaching the rear, within a minimum time frame, based on speed & distance, while the transmission is in Reverse.

Is this too much to ask ?
