I have to admit when they tld me it was in my Fit I didn't think it was going to be significant. I do like it. A lot. Just so you know, it holds the car there for 3-5 seconds, then slowly "pulses" the car back a few inches at a time. It won't hold the car there indefinitely. M
Interesting....thanks for sharing your experience with this feature.

And that Lane Watch feature?
This may be obvious to everyone else, but it just occurred to me that the Lane Watch, and the backup cam as well, must flip the image before they display. That way when you look at the display in the dash it's not as if you'd turned your head to look, but as if you're looking in a mirror.

Makes sense... it just never occurred to me. I think the Lane Watch will be very useful; lots and lots of cyclists and cycle lanes in my city.

It is hugely helpful to me. Lane watch = no blind spots on the right at all. Backup allows you to tuck in close, like with a snow bank. That camera on the rear does have a tendency on my Fit to get covered in muck when it's snowing/ slushy out, but it does work nicely.

Word to the wise, when using backup camera do not get complacent. You still need to watch you side mirrors, lest you tap them on a concrete barrier. Yeah, and if you are really lucky, you can do it with the ex in the car so she can laugh and laugh and laugh at your stupidity.

I like the 360 view now! Still keep playing with colors to decide what I want.


Side question for you guys..are there great prices with new release of cars ( this is my following of a new car) or since we are thinking May 1, would it be better to wait for memorial day pricing?

It's been 11 years since I bought a new car and that was a Scion with set pricing, so I can't help you either. But if I were to guess, I would say with this new model there would not be special holiday pricing. Would be nice though if they did. :)

My guess is there won't be a significant difference in pricing unless the HR-V becomes so hot they are selling out. The best advice I can give you is to shop around, take a test drive, and then get on the computer. The best deals will be had from the Internet sales reps for the dealer.

Agree.....and ask for internet pricing from many dealers, even some distant ones.
