Only if it defaults to a normal mirror when the camera gets snow,ice or fogged. We get blowing wet sticky snow and ice here that renders rear cameras useless

I was going to ask if it can be switched to a regular mirror, thanks for posting this.

If the mirror can serve as both a screen and a normal mirror, then it is a pretty good design and I like it.

GM has been doing it for a few years. Here’s how it’s used in a Bolt.

I like ‘em and they do offer advantages. However the eye focus distance is much closer as a screen than as a mirror. Takes my eyes a fraction of second to focus on the screen. Resolution is not good enough to see cop cars in the distance behind you. Even when zoomed.


People who count on their fingers should maintain a discreet silence.

I bought a cheapo setup from Amazon and put it into my truck. The truck has a smoked rear window--and then I put on a topper which has... another smoked piece of glass. Has to be middle of the day or someone has to have their headlights on for the rearview mirror to work--and let's face it, full sized truck has little rearward visibility as a rule. Is a nice & cheap upgrade. I did install a camera into my enclosed trailer and use that to help back up the trailer, that's a nice upgrade too.

Gentex has already had them out for the past 10 years. Honda started using their embedded LCD mirrors on the Odyssey if you wanted a backup camera but no navigation, Toyota used them on the Tacoma and Tundra. This one is a newer version with a wide-screen LCD but it lacks the electrochromic auto-dimming feature, hence the flip-down for the night like an regular mirror.

I like the camera as part of the mirror, as others have pointed out, it is a far more natural location than a dash display. In that respect, having the mirror be a little larger would be helpful. I'm curious if "fisheye" distortion is a problem and how easy it is to judge distances with it?

As for cost, you know darned good and well that it's expensive tech and drives up the cost of both the vehicle and whatever part it is integrated into, such as the F150's incorporating it into the tail light, making a $60 part cost 10X that should either the camera fail or the taillight get damaged.
