Three-axis means that it detects acceleration or deceleration in any direction, so it doesn't matter if the 7-pin connector is vertical or horizontal, longitudinal or traverse, or any angle in between.
One drawback is that it uses Bluetooth to connect to your smartphone, and you need the app running on the phone while you're driving if you want to use the manual override feature.
I called E-Trailer, and they said no...but CURT (the manufacturer) said yes.
That's odd. This web page on etrailer's site (https://www.etrailer.com/p-C51180.ht...model=Sprinter
) says it will
fit a 2015 Sprinter.
