2011 Ford Mustang GT: Only Get the Rearview Camera...
June 29, 2011
...if you also get the navigation system. Otherwise, the display is rather small, integrated as it is within the rearview mirror rather than being shown on the optional nav system's big screen.
I'll admit it -- I love rear park assist as it removes some daily stress when you're faced with crowded city curbside parking on a daily basis.. The audible sensor types are enough for me. But the ones with a rearview camera are even better as they show your back bumper and its precise proximity to whatever you're backing towards.
As you can see, our GT has the optional rearview camera but not the nav system, hence the small display. For $385 it seems rather pricey. I'd skip it unless I was also getting navi and would go with an aftermarket audible system which would probably run about $220 or so installed.
