I have it and love it. It's saved me quite a few times when I've had to make quick decisions. It's very accurate and it flashes rapidly if your turn signal is on and someone is in your blind spot. I've had it pop on a few times in the city if I drive past a barrier or something large but that rarely happens. I had the right side malfunction and it wouldn't shut off (even when the vehicle was completely off). Apparently some water got into the unit's seal, it froze and cracked it open and then damaged it. Where you're living however I can't see anything like that being a problem.
