I am thankful for my forward-looking camera system, and sometimes wish it had a little better resolution.I used to have a Curb Alert on my Z06 (and also installed one of our 2017 daily drivers). However, I got tired of false positives when driving down the road white pavement markings. Turned off the sound for a month to confirm I did not need it any more; at a result I was sure by then that I was able to know how far to park without being out too far, nor coming close to damaging the splitter. Removed the Curb Alert from both vehicles.
Also I like the alternative of “when in doubt”, to back into a space and use the OEM camera as wonderful “space/distance” guide.
I do love the 2016 camera system — wish our ‘15 had it.
I also wish I had a front camera for my '15. When pulling into our garage I use a practice golf ball tied to a string from the ceiling. Then when it bumps the windshield in front of my eyes, I know when to stop. The golf ball will never move, unlike something on the floor of the garage. This works so well, I also use it with our other car, which does have a front camera.I too wish my 15 had come with the front camera, but the only time I pull into a parking space and could use it is when I pull into the garage. Being a bit old fashioned for some things, I just have a 4x4 as a stop so that I'm close but far enough away from a cabinet.
