i tried it out a few times, was very impressed with it. it got me into a spot i would have never tried on my own. unfortunately getting out of that spot was a bit tricky, took a few back-and-forth maneuvers, so be careful where you let it park you! it will get you in, but it does not to work to get you out (it should, but i can see why this would be dangerous).
i will rarely use it as i rarely park in a city street environment, but it is kind of nice to have. i do like the rear camera though!
Actually, the default side is the right side for the Active Park Assist. The only time it will look for a parking space on the left side is if you turn the turn signal to the left position.
