There out there, look at DIY Modifications section, few you can buy, but pricy. I'm in process of installing one with parts i bought.skmehta3k said:What I would really like is a rear camera for backing up, with smallest screen up front i.e. under center dash console by floor etc...
Does anyone even use mirrors these days ? The way people cut each other off on the roads these days seems to indicate mirrors are no longer used.homeric said:
I'm using these mirrors in my Ody and CRV. They work perfect, eliminate the driver side blind spots and don't cover up the normal driver side mirror. But you should be able to get the mirror cheaper than advertised. I think mine were about $7 / piece but I can’t remember were I got them. Maybe it was AutoZone as mentioned by wyc88.homeric said:
Exactly.. I'm with you on this one. Ever since my dad taught me how to set my mirrors correctly, I firmly beleive the fact that there is no such thing as a blind spot (while driving down the road). As dgs says:LeadFoot said:I second dgs's post that you can adjust your side mirrors properly to eliminate blind spots. I have mine adjusted so I can see the cars in the side mirrors as they approach, then before their trunks disappear from the side mirrors, their hoods appear in my peripheral vision. I have no blind spots.
It will take some getting used to, but i'll be another one to admit, once you have them set correctly and you learn to trust your mirrors, you'll find you don't have to look over your shoulder anymore, and better yet, you never have to take your eyes off of what's in front of you, aside from quickly peeking to the mirror to see if anything is in it.dgs said:With the van parked look in your center (windshield) mirror. Find the object that you see in the LEFT most edge of the mirror (or back window) and adjust the LEFT outside mirror so that same object is at the RIGHT most edge of it. Now adjust your RIGHT outside mirror so that the object in the RIGHT most edge of the center mirror is in the LEFT most edge of it. You won't see any of your van in the out side mirrors, so it will take some getting used to, but you'll have a wide panoramic view of what's behind you. As a vehicle in the lane next to you, say to the left, approaches from the rear it will leave the center mirror and appear I the left mirror. When it leaves the left mirror, it will be right outside your left window.
