    I'm looking for a wireless or smart parking sensor that's easy to install. I'm not much for wiring anything...When I look online most options seem to be extremely
    complicated or expensive. Any help would be much appreciated. I'm buying a used car soon and need to know options soon so I can maybe have the dealership
    install it for me. ;):)

    Technically the only thing completely wireless is you or your passenger’s eyes. All electronics use wires :D
    I have not heard of anybody adding any parking sensor to a Prius.

    I bought "no holes parking sensor" when I was in the philippines. No holes means you do not need to make holes for the sensors. You or the car mechanics will just remove the rear bumper and place the tape sensor inside the bumper and connect the wiring to the backing light. It took less than an hour.

    Were any of the higher spec'ed USA models fitted with the IPA (intelligent park assist) option?

    While the IPA (self-parking) itself is a bit of a gimmick the guide-lines on the backing camera are useful as are the proximity sensors fitted to the bumpers. While there is no audible warning there is a visual indication when get close and then really close.

    My thought would be to seek out a model with the sensors factory fitted, if these were available in the States.

    That was definitely not available in the US for 2004. I believe 2016 Prius Liftback was the first US model Prius with IPA available as part of a package.

    Here are Toyota manuals on how to install parking sensor system in gen 2 Prius. Manuals can easily be used with any aftermarket system even if they're written for a specific system. If just installing the sensors to rear just skip the front part.

    IPA and BSM weren't part of TSS-P, which was an extra cost item, until you got to the Four in 2016, IIRC.

    You couldn't get HUD on the Four, so I bought my 2016 Three with ATP and TSS-P.

    Thank you guys,

    We've found something that looks promising it's from fensens.com. Looks like I can connect this to my phone.
