A few thoughts on my experience with reverse camera

By | 9 July 2021
I was always fearful of the sitation when I wanted to do reverse parking and I had to fit our car in extremely narrow space. Most of us as not only was training this ability over and over again during the driving course, but also had to present this move during the driving test. I handled to pass this victoriously but it didn’t solve 1 thing – I often felt very frightened each time I anted to do reverse parking. That thing terrified me so badly that I subconsciously started to avoid reverse parking.
One day I was dropping home my friend. When we were looking for a parking place next to his house, he quikcly noticed I was extremely scared that I had to do a reverse parking. Nevertheless, he didn’t say a word then.

Times was passing by and I forgot about this situation in the car. Nonetheless, my colleague has a very good memory. On my birthday I received from him… bmw reverse camera f30! The gift was accompanied with a handwritten card that said: “I am sure that you will like 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 a car!”.

And guess what? That was true! I have been using that rear view camera f30 for 3 weeks now. And I love this! If you compare it to ordinary car mirrors, this camera allows to seemuch more and at better angle. I don’t need to bother anymore that there is area known as “blind area” just behind a car. I can see all I need to reverse harmlessly.

Moreover, while I was relying just on car mirrors, I was also afraid about the thing that proportions and distance of the view that I was watching in standard rear view mirrors was alwaysdistorted. Thanks to the rear view camera I do not need to speculate on distance anymore. I could check how much place exactly is still there and how far I could still reverse. To sum up, if you are teriffied of reverse parking, the reverse camera could be a good solution for you too. I am really grateful for my colleague that he gave it to me. If I knew earlier that such device exists, I wouldn’t have wasted all of that time trying to refrain from reverse parking! If there is so great device that is able to make our life easier, why not to use that!
