Hi, I have a new dual head (v 8.8) set in my new car since few weeks. I already have had a v. 8.1 sensors in my old car until july 2010 so I can make some comparison.
I noticed that the range of parking sensors is very poor in my new setup. I can get some "beeps" only if the car is about 1/2 meter or less from a wall. In my old setup I usually got "beeps" even @ 2 meters from a wall
I checked the CPU settings and parking sensors sensitivity is "high" and the two heads have absolutely no obstruction in front of them (the new car is like the old one and install is exactly the same).
Some days ago I wrote a post about output light power of new sensors (please read: http://126.96.36.199/novili/smf/ind...14841#msg14841) and now I'm going to think that my new LI set can be affected by a some kind of problem regarding LDs.
I would like to know if other customers have this "short range" issue in parking mode. What is the max distance that make your sensors "beeps"?
