For those of us who have backed into many a tree or pillar, Downey Products introduces the
Zone Guard utlrasonic back-up safety system. Zone Guard uses audio and visual warnings to
alert the driver of any object in the path of the vehicle while it is backing up. As the
vehicle moves closer to an obstruction, the repeat rate of the audio warning increases and
the dash-mounted LED readout gives the actual distance to the object (in inches).
Additional LEDs indicate which side of the vehicle the object is on. One simple electrical
connection makes Zone Guard easy to install and the sensors are easy to maintain, according
to the company.
