Garbage cans and other bumper smashers have met their match: the Echomaster Dolphin SonarStep Hitch Backup Sensor.
With its 7' range, this stealthy hitch backup sensor detects objects before they collide with your bumper. The hitch step fits in any 1 1/4" or 2" receiver and draws power from your vehicle's 7-way tow adapter or the included wiring harness. Then it sends auditory and visual alerts to the wireless receiver plugged into your 12-volt cigarette lighter. The distinctive lights and tones indicate the objects distance.
Your Echomaster Dolphin SonarStep Hitch Backup Sensor comes with everything you need—even a locking hitch pin and anti-rattle pad. Plus, it's backed by a 1-year warranty.

I love my EchoMaster but have had to create a height adjustment bar in order to get the system up to the suggested street clearance. I sincerely believe that the unit has saved me several hundred dollars and a lot of headaches due to warning me of unseen objects while backing up.

My wife has a Ford Explorer with the backup alarm and it already included with the package we bought when we got it. I just bought a new truck and it didn't have it on it and the dealer said he could put it on but the price was about three times as much that I paid for this one. Plus they had to drill the bumper and I would be out the truck for a day or two. I bought this and installed it myself in about ten minutes. Well worth the value and quality.

Easy install in 3 minutes. No wiring with 7 pin hitch connector. Extra parts for just about any type of wiring are included. Seems to be appropriately sensitive when backing, but a louder alarm would be better.

Works as stated. Perhaps not as well as a more costly item, but it gets your attention and may prevent a costly accident. I have a non honda hitch so I had to have it installed using the included wiring harness. All in all an okay product.

Have had factory backup sensors in other vehicles - bought this for my 2012 Ram 1500. Shipping delivered it quickly and the install literally took minutes. I immediately started using it and it works as good as my previous factory sensors. An added bonus is that is doubles as a step! Barely notice it's there! The tones are easy to discern and the accompanying lights add awareness while backing up. Stop looking start backing up confidently!
