Get All Round Parking Protection

Available in 3 sensor options the Parking Dynamics PD1 Front, PD1 Rear and PD1 Vision Rear parking sensors use the same electromagnetic technology but have different alert tones to distinguish them apart. Front and rear sensors work independently on separate circuits giving you all round parking and reversing protection.

Front & Rear Parking Sensor Options Available

PD1 Rear parking sensor provides your car with full rear bumper protection when parking and reversing, alerting you to approaching objects via an audible speaker.

When reverse gear is engaged the PD1 Rear parking sensor provides an instant, automatic, self-diagnostic function that maps out the surrounding area of your rear bumper constantly monitoring this as you reverse with 100% accuracy, providing you with 3 different audible tones (Zones) alerting you of your proximity in relation to surrounding objects!
The full length of your bumper (including the sides) is protected with an ever increasing beeping sound.

As you reverse, Zone 1 (furthest away from your vehicle) detects the approaching object first.

Zone 1: 80 to 50 cm in length - The 1st tone signals with a slow "be-be-be" sound

Zone 2: 50 to 25 cm in length - The 2nd tone is a faster "be-be-be" sound

Zone 3: 25cm and less - the 3rd tone is a constant "beeeeeep" sound

Here is what you will get if you order the Parking Dynamics PD1 Rear today!

A. The Speaker is small and at just 20mm in diameter mounts anywhere inside of the vehicle and can be run to any location. The audible tones that are emitted to alert you of the proximity of surrounding objects can be clearly heard even when mounted at the back of the vehicle close to or behind interior panels.

B. The Electronic Control Unit (ECU) is the 'brain' of the PD1, and mounts securely using the supplied adhesive strip either inside of the boot or behind the vehicle bumper. The front ECU mounts under the bonnet or inside of the car, typically behind the glove box. Dimensions of this compact rear sensor unit are just (L57mm x H13mm x D33mm) and the front sensor dimensions are (L75mm x H23mm x D40mm)

C. The Antenna is a very strong and flexible adhesive metallic tape that mounts behind the bumper. Its 1cm height and 2.7m length gives you flexibility to run over bumper curves and round bumper mouldings and ensures 100% bumper coverage of even the largest vehicle, offering a full, all round protection zone. The antenna can be cut to any length in seconds.

Universal Installation Instructions are included covering the easy 3-wire installation enabling any basic DIYer to install the PD1 parking sensor without any problems making the installation simple, safe and secure.

Parking Dynamics PD1 Advantages Are Clear!

Parking Dynamics PD1 fits all Cars, Vehicles, Vans, 4x4s, MPVs, SUVs and Motor Homes giving you maximum compatibility, functionality, reliability and high performance accuracy.

The PD1 is flexible and allows you to move the sensor from vehicle to vehicle upon resale, for the minimum cost of a replacement antenna. No bumper adjustments make this ideal for Rental and Leasing companies.

Allows you to get close (10cm) to an object. Great for tight parking spaces. Ultrasonics only allow you to get 25cm away from an object making it hard to judge how close you actually are in tight spaces.

No Visible Parts, Period! The Parking Dynamics PD1 when fitted is a completely discrete and totally invisible. Only you will know it's fitted. This ensures a no-holes installation, a higher value to your car—and a more desirable car.

Being CAN bus compatible ensures the PD1 integrates seamlessly with both older conventional wiring systems and the latest intelligent (CAN Bus) multiplex wiring systems. Connect the wrong aftermarket parking sensor and it could be costly. Parking Dynamics is the solution to this dilemma!

No-Drill! The PD1 is fitted without drilling your bumper and unlike ultrasonic type parking sensors there are NO ugly sensors to be mounted in your bumper and then painted. No need to match the paint colour.

A Maintenance FREE Front and Rear parking and reverse sensor technology - No Cleaning, No Adjustment and No Painting of sensors or Constant Testing required!

100% accurate, responsive and reliable in all parking situations and weather conditions - Regardless of the conditions: Sun, Rain, Wind, Snow or Hail the PD1 works and gives you accurate feedback in real time, every time.

Parking sensors help and result in a major decrease in minor damage collisions caused when parking and reversing. This simple device will pay for itself many times over by reducing the number of small bangs in which you are involved. Completely eliminating the chance of putting your No Claims Bonus at risk!

Installation & Compatibility

Installing the PD1 Parking Sensor on cars & vehicles with a plastic bumper!

The Universal Parking Dynamics PD1 is compatible with any Car, Vehicle, Van, 4x4, MPV, SUV and Motor home that has a plastic bumper and as 99.9% of cars and vehicles have plastic bumpers, you have no need to be concerned, even if your bumper appears part metal the PD1 will work. If you are in any doubt please contact us.

The PD1 antenna is easy to fit and requires no bumper adjustments or holes ensuring a damage free installation. The antenna is cost effective to replace should you wish to move the sensor to a new car in the future or simply require a replacement.

Mounting the Electronic Control Unit (ECU):

The Rear ECU can be installed in various locations such as inside of the boot behind the trim or inside your rear bumper with the included adhesive mount. The Front ECU can be installed inside of the engine bay or behind the glove box, dashboard or trim with the included adhesive mount.

Mounting the Speaker:

Mount the parking sensor speaker using the included adhesive mount. The volume is loud enough to provide a good warning even if mounted behind your vehicles interior trim. This connects to the ECU by push fit connection. Can be extended up to 15M and will mount in any location.

Mounting the Antenna:

Mount the adhesive metallic parking sensor antenna onto the inner side of the front and/or rear bumper (depending upon which sensor option you choose) making sure the bumper surface is clean before attaching.

Ensure the terminal connector is on the side where you have located the ECU. When the antenna has been attached, covering the whole of the bumper from left to right (leaving approx 15cm from the edges); the excess length is cut off. Place a piece of the included adhesive material or tape at either end of the antenna to ensure a secure installation onto the bumper. Its recommended (but not essential) to cover antenna length with a black anti-rust protection paint that is applied to the underneath of a car chassis or similar to protect from the elements.

It is important that the antenna is installed at the highest part from the ground that corresponds to the furthest distance from the vehicle body as a precaution to prevent any interference from nearby metal parts. The recommended position of the parking sensor antenna is at least 40cm from ground level, with 50cm being optimum.

Once the bumper is removed, if your vehicle has a metal crash protection bar and the antenna will be within 3 cm's of this metal bar (once the bumper is re-fitted) you can install a 2nd Antenna (included with all PD1 sensors) to prevent any reduction in detection range or insulate the metal crash bar. This is only required on a small number of vehicles but the option is available if required. Read these 2 technical documents to learn more. Boosting Detection Range and Insulating Metal Crash Bar

Electrical Connections

PD1 Rear Parking & Reverse Sensor:

1) Black wire MUST be connected to the ground (body / chassis) of the vehicle.
2) Red wire is connected to the 12V supply wire of the reversing light. Live only when reverse gear is selected.
3) Connect the antenna connection wire from the ECU to the antenna.

PD1 Front Parking Sensor:

1) Black wire MUST be connected to the ground (body / chassis) of the vehicle.
2) Red wire is connected in line with the switch and the 12V ignition wire. Live only when ignition is active.
3) Connect the antenna connection wire from the ECU to the antenna.

PD1 Vision Rear Parking & Reverse Sensor:

1) Black wire MUST be connected to the ground (body / chassis) of the vehicle.
2) Red wire is connected to the 12V supply wire of the reversing light. Live only when reverse gear is selected.
3) Connect the antenna connection wire from the ECU to the antenna.
4) Mount LED Display on rear view mirror and run wires to ECU.


DIY Installation & Bumper Removal

99.9% of car & vehicle bumpers are made of plastic making the PD1 fully compatible. Installing the Parking Dynamics PD1 car parking and reverse sensor is simple, safe and secure. Depending on your car or vehicle, the bumper may have to be removed. On some cars just loosening the bumper by releasing the locator screws will enable access for installation. If you choose a professional installation most auto electricians, car audio and security installers, mechanics and body shop technicians will remove the bumper literally in minutes.

Removal of the bumper is not as difficult as it at first may seem and is typically held on with 2-4 main bolts and screws and some locators. In a few cases rivets are used that need to be popped out and simply replaced from your dealer parts department (at a minimal cost) when re-fitting.

If required your dealer's parts department can provide an exploded view (print off) of your front and rear bumper assembly and this will show you exactly how the bumper is fixed to your car or vehicle and where any screws, locators or rivets can be found. Alternatively a Haynes Manual will detail this information.

Post sale you will receive an email of our recommended professional installers.

PD1 is 100% Compatible

Electromagnetic (PD1) or Ultrasonic Technology?

Totally unique in design, the PD1 parking and reverse sensors are a superior alternative to the older ultrasonic type sensor technology that requires you to drill 4 or 6 holes in your bumper, mounting ugly black sensors that then need painting to colour code and match the shade of your bumper... The Parking Dynamics PD1 makes this a thing of the past!

The PD1 antenna has a minimum price to replace and gives you optimum flexibility as it fits bumpers of all shapes and sizes and can run over or around uneven bumper surfaces.

New CAN Bus Systems:

Many new cars and vehicles now come with the CAN Bus multiplex wiring system fitted. The PD1 is fully CAN Bus compatible and requires no adjustment or extra accessories when installing. Beware of ultrasonic systems that require extra wiring and relay components in order to fully integrate with CAN Bus systems. Connect the wrong aftermarket parking sensor and it could be costly. The PD1 eliminates this problem!

Vehicles Fitted with a Tow Bar:

Parking Dynamics PD1 is the recommended Parking and Reverse Sensor for vehicles with a Tow bar fitted as performance is not affected. It's the only Parking Sensor available that is compatible with vehicles that have a tow bar fitted.

Vehicles with Spare Wheel on Rear Door:

The Parking Dynamics PD1 will continue to operate effectively when fitted to vehicles with a Spare Wheel fixed on the rear door such as 4x4, MPV or SUV's. It's the only Parking and Reverse Sensor available that is compatible with vehicles that have a spare wheel fixed to rear door.

Vehicles with a Metal Bumper:

The Parking Dynamics PD1 Front, Rear and Vision Parking and Reverse Sensors are not compatible with metal bumpers straight out of the box. However with a few insulating adjustments to your metal bumper, the PD1 will be fully compatible. See the Metal Bumper Installation Technical Document to learn more.

V.Matchett : Monday 03 February, 2014

I have just fitted the reversing one
on to my wife's 2008 mini cooper,
I wired it into the loom leading to the drivers side rear lights. Live wire to the mini's Blue wire with the gray line on it and Earth wire to the mini's Brown wire. Their is no need to remove the bumper,
I would recommend 2" black army duck tape to cover the antenna tape and wiring with.
The unit works fine with clear audible warnings.
my wife is Very happy with the item.

Keith Leonard Oxer: Thursday 11 August, 2011

Delivery was unbelieveable! I pressed "send" and there was a knock on the door, I thought never, lol. and it did what it said on the box . . . .Brilliant! Thank you

Stuart Eustace: Sunday 07 August, 2011

I purchased the front and rear sensors together for my volvo XC90 and fitted it myself with the help of the instruction downloads. The rear vision packs works well and leaves a good distance however you must move slowly as there seems to a little delay in picking objects up. That said it is very good.

Alistair Coull: Saturday 21 May, 2011

It is what it say's on the box its that simple.I fitted rear sensor to my 07 Ford Focus Ghia 4 door,and it was fitted in less than an hour i didnt even have to take off the bumper.would recomend to anyone!!!

Working perfect!!!!

Sam Leung: Saturday 02 April, 2011

Having recently installed ultrasonic sensors on a 1997 Honda Prelude and a 1999 Daihatsu Terios I was keen to try out the PD1 on a 2004 BMW 325ci.

Whilst installing ultrasonic kits is relatively simple, they become time consuming and costly when the sensors have to be colour matched to the vehicle bumper colour. This involves at least two coats of base colour in the case of metallics plus a coat of clear.

The PD1 kit arrived in Australia within 7 days of ordering on the internet.
Installation was easy on this vehicle as the crash protection bar was made of polycarbonate and not metal, thus allowing the antenna to be sandwiched between it and the outer plastic bumper at the ideal recommended height above the ground.

Only one antenna was required on the BMW and the system worked immediately on first power up as per the operation instructions.

This product is highly recommended!

Customer Testimonials

I can't believe the ease by which the parking sensor was fitted and we just love the discrete 'hidden' sensor design. What a difference the PD1 makes to both mine and my wife's parking and reversing.

The audible alert keeps our attention to a maximum level and really helps with tight parking spaces.
