I have seen the ultrasonic system of an expensive (not as expensive as an i-MiEV) car in action and I love it. But where to put the display in our little I ?

On the other hand, opening the trunk door I can see everything when parking.

Am thinking about adding in an aftermarket backup camera/Navigation/DVR/Bluetooth etc. that replaces the rear view mirror. If you check eBay you'll find tons of these options some even with radar detectors built in as well.

I got reverse radar from Ebay for 15USD. Installed a phone holder right on the emergency light switch. Bought a USB charger. Use my iPhone as GPS.

Total cost 30usd

I picked up a double-DIN Navotainment system from an SE Premium 2012 as a spare, but my mother is interested in using it in her 2012 ES base model. Has anyone performed this transplant? I’m hoping it’ll work without the backup camera, rear door speakers, etc, as she’s mainly interested in the large and simple navigation screen and ability to add waypoints.
