I almost used it in a parking garage the other day, but got nervous how close it pulled up to another vehicle in the row in front and hit the brakes.

Also seemed like the sensors didn't pick up spots as easily as I've seen in some YouTube videos. Maybe I was driving by them too quickly or too slowly.

I used it in the dark last night! Was showing my daughter my new "party trick" and paralleled it. It only had to back in, once forward, and one small adjust back again. Did great job but it favored the distance to the car in front than behind (meaning closer to the front car).

Have not tried perpendicular park yet.

@daemonic3 Out of curiosity, how close was the final position of the truck to the edge that you were parallel parking along (curb, edge of the road, etc)? In most of the videos I've seen, it looks like it generally stops a little too far out for my liking, but I admittedly haven't seen a video that really focuses on that aspect of the feature.

Shoot, I didn't check!! I know that my driver side was pretty aligned with the driver sides of the cars in front and behind (they were also full size trucks). I should have verified passenger side to curb, dangit.

Mine wedged itself in with about 6 inches on the front and back parallel parking on the street, obviously didn't want to leave it there but I wish I took a picture, it was a butt-puckering experience.

LMAO how many iterations did it take to get in there?
