A few thoughts on my experience with reverse camera

I was always nervous of the sitation when I wanted to do reverse parking and I needed fit our car in a very limited space. A lot of us as not only was practising this ability over and over again during the driving course, but also had to perform this maneuver during the driving test. I managed to pass this successfully but it didn’t change 1 thing – I always felt very stressed each time I had to do reverse parking. This fear terrified me so badly that I subconsciously stopped doing reverse parking.
One day I was dropping home my colleague. When I was looking for a parking place next to his apartment, he immediately realized I was extremely scared that I had to do a reverse parking. Nevertheless, he didn’t say a word at that time.

Times was passing by and I forgot about that situation in the car. However, my friend has a very good memory. On my birthday he gave me… bmw reverse camera f30! The present was accompanied with a handwritten card that said: “I am concinved that you would enjoy driving much more, if you don’t worry about a reverse parking so badly. Thanks to that camera you would see everything you need to see behind your car!”.

And you know what? He was right! I have been using this rear view camera f30 for 3 weeks now. And I love that! In comparison with ordinary car mirrors, this camera allows to detectmuch more as well as at better angle. I don’t have to bother anymore that there is area called “blind area” right the car. I can see all I need to do reverse parking safely.

Moreover, while I was relying only on car mirrors, I was also afraid about the fact that proportions and distance of the view that I was watching in typical rear view mirrors was alwaysdistorted. Thanks to the reverse camera I do not have to guess on distance anymore. I can check how much place exactly has left and how far I can still reverse. To conclude, if you are teriffied of reverse parking, the reverse camera will be a great option for you too. I am very thankful for my colleague that he gave it to me. If I was informed earlier that such thing exists, I wouldn’t have lost all of that time trying to refrain from reverse parking! If there is such an amazing device that is able to make the life easier, why not to use it!
