Mobile Eye Collision Avoidance

I have been looking at something like the "Mobile Eye Collision avoidance" for my 2017 Axis.

Those of you with the Mobie eye (or any brand name) ......how do you like them? Would you purchase again? Or are they just annoying?

Any thoughts? Sounds handy if you get distracted on the road. My new Summit has all the bells and whistles so it woud be nice to have something on the Axis.

And yes I know the only giving you "Warning lights and sounds" they DO NOT apply the brakes or correct my steering like the Summit does.

Mobile Eye was standard on my Magnitude SV34. I find it useful.

It will alert you if you are drifting off the road or someone in front of you is too close. It can also alert you when you are getting far above the speed limit.

I wish it had blind spot detection abilities but I like it for what it is.

I had it installed and would do it again. The features I like best are lane departure and mobile eye's speed limit notification. Both my factory installed GPS and the Garmin RV GPS are often incorrect with speed limits. Since Mobile Eye takes a picture of the speed limit signs it knows what the speed limit is.

Where did you purchase it from?

Im thinking about it. Garmin has a simular produce for only $139 but I dont know how well it works.

I figured if all of the RV manufactures are installing "Mobile Eye" brand it must be pretty good.

One advantage buying it on your own is you might have access to other options. I'm sure it costs more but they do have Blind Spot Detection and I do recall they had the feature of auto dimming high beams to oncoming traffic.

I would contact them and ask if they have a list of authorized dealers in your area that you could contact to get pricing, etc. or you could just contact your own dealer.

Personally, I would go with someone that Mobile Eye recommends because I have found Thor and their dealers really know very little about it.

I had my dealer do the install before delivery. Mobile Eye’s web site should list installers. Special equipment is needed for the calibration of the system.
