and when I bought my midlife-crisismobile last year (2008 Mustang convertible), the first thing I did was install an aftermarket backup camera.But there's one feature I really miss from my previous ride, and that's a backup sensor. I want visual and audio alerts when I'm parallel parking or backing down the driveway.Every car should have this; few do, especially older models. Thankfully, there's an easy fix: FenSens. It's a totally wireless parking sensor that installs right over your license plate (front and/or rear). And I've got an exclusive deal for you.For a limited time, you can  shipped when you apply promo code CNETDEAL at checkout. It normally sells for $150.fensens-with-app
FenSens
"FenSens" is short for "fender sensor" -- get it? -- and it's designed to work on nearly any vehicle. The unit installs in minutes: Just unscrew your license plate, put the battery-powered frame over it, then screw it back in place using the supplied theft-resistant screws. (You could add a second one to your front fender as well, something to consider if you do a lot of parallel parking.)From there it pairs via Bluetooth with your phone, where the FenSens app provides not only visual and audio cues while you're backing up, but also vibrations -- the idea being that you could leave your phone in your pocket and still know if you're about to hit something.Meanwhile, a wireless quick-launch button also pairs with your phone; it mounts easily on your steering wheel. One press and it launches the FenSens app -- if you're an Android user. On an , the button generates an onscreen notification you must then tap to load the app -- less than ideal, if you ask me, but that's the fault of , not the product.The frame's pair of AA batteries are good for up to five months, according to FenSens, and the quick-launch button should last considerably longer (it runs on a button-cell).CNET hasn't reviewed the FenSens, but way back when it was just a crowdfunded dream. Meanwhile, a smattering of rated it 4.5 stars out of 5, and gave it a score of 9.1 (out of 10).My quick take: Android users are likely to be much happier with the product because of the ease of launching the app. But regardless of what kind of phone you have, the FenSens is cheaper (and certainly easier to install) than many parking sensors -- especially at this price.Your thoughts?xbox-one-s-03.jpg
