Sprinter Blind Spot/ Lane departure

I am in the process of ordering a Villagio by Renegade and wondered if anyone had purchased the Mercedes Sprinter with the Blind Spot monitors and Lane Departure system and how satisfied they are with those options?

I did not know those options were available. I would certainly order them as an option because the cost is spread out for the life in enjoyment and safety. The Sprinter will be my next RV, good choice.

Our 2016 Villagio HAB has side cameras that show up on the NAV screen whenever the turn signal for that side is turned on. This in addition to the rear view camera. (which can be set to show constantly, by the way, not just when the vehicle is placed into reverse gear.)
Ours came with them. I think it IS an option. I would definitely get it.

A bit late responding, but:

The Blind Spot Assist on the Sprinter is the single greatest safety advance I've seen in years. I see it is also coming in on a number of regular sedans, etc. For a slab-sided vehicle like an RV, it is great.

The Lane Assist, not so much. Constant beeping just because I ran a bit close to the white line on the right. The default is "On". I turn mine off every time I start the engine. However, I leave it on for roads where the right hand shoulder is narrow or there is a drop-off.

Can the Blind Spot Monitor be ordered for the Sprinter after the fact. I just bought a used 2015 Era and it didn't have that on it
