ROSS Frequently Asked Questions

Will I need to clean the sensors?

No. The ROSS uses microwave sensing and can see through snow, mud, ice even a plastic bumper.

How am I warned about approaching an obstacle?

You will hear a beeping sound which increases in intensity the closer you get to the obstacle or you can use the visual LED strip located in the rear window which changes color according to distance. (Green - Far, Red - Close)

Can the LED strip be located in the front of my vehicle?

Yes, but it is recommended to install it in the rear. Contact our technical services department for specific details.

Why is this system the best?

Other detection technologies require an external transducer and they cannot be placed behind or covered by any type of material. Their performance can be seriously affected by the weather. The ROSS uses technology that is not affected by these conditions.
