  1. This CA5 unit is NOT what you want for a new C7 Corvette; get the CA14. CA5 version does not power off after 20 minutes and remains active. Review by CAPT C

    I installed this in my C7 Corvette and the installation went well. The one IMPORTANT point is that the CA5 unit that I purchased does not power off after 20 minutes of the car being turned off and remains constantly active hours after the car has been sitting. I called Brandmotion about this and they indicated that the proper unit was the CA14 version since that one uses different amp levels to sense when power is off to the vehicle. This unit will continue to be active and will draw power from your battery if hooked up as instructed by the installation instructions with the hot lead to the battery post. The only way around this is to connect it to an accessory fuse in the fuse compartment or remove the CA5 unit and exchange it for the CA14 unit. Slight oversight in the documentation and distinctions between the units until after you have made a purchase. The unit works as advertised but am reluctant to keep this trickle drain on my battery of my new C7 Corvette and the effect it will cause over time. (Posted on 5/5/16)

  2. Its a valuable product Review by Dono

    the only down side to this product is that it has only one sensor, when parking on an angle or against an angled curbing the center of the vehicle may be far from the curbing but not the ends, so unless you set it for a large distance from curbs you may hit on the ends. Bit overall it saves costly repairs or replacement of air dams and underpin deflectors, which affect your milage. (Posted on 1/31/16)

  3. Curb alert and smart alternators Review by Richard

    Hi, Curb alert works a treat and works very well. only one problem with newer cars is the smart alternator and the voltage not always reaching the turn on voltage for the curb alert. so sometime it is not on when you need it most.
    don't know if the threshold voltage can be adjusted or overridden. (Posted on 6/24/14)

  4. Finally a way to protect your "front" bumper Review by JME

    I own a pristine 2001 Audi A8L. I've been constantly concerned about pulling too close any curb as this car is a little too low. Now, at 15" I'm warned to stop and boy do I love it.

    Whether or not you install your own depends upon the car. I had to have mine professionally installed.

    I'll be buying another for my other car with a low front bumper. (Posted on 5/9/14)

  5. curb alert works as advertized Review by jay

    I recently ordered the curb alert for a 2009 bmw z4 roadster. The unit was installed yesterday calibrated and put to the test this am at the recreation center curbs. Worked as advertized. Install did not present a problem just the decisions as to the run of the cables. I;m 75 and not to good at bending but the unit is a snap to install and calibrate. I will need some time using this unit before I can give it a 10. (Posted on 11/8/11)
