Another safety and convenience feature developed by Gentex is a video display located in the auto-dimming rearview mirror. When paired with a backup camera the display shows a real-time panoramic view of the rear of the vehicle. The display appears through the mirror glass automatically when the vehicle is shifted into "reverse" it disappears when the vehicle is shifted into any other gear.
Display Technology -- the liquid crystal display (LCD) appears through the mirror's reflective surface via Gentex's proprietary "transflective" coatings and lighting techniques. The result is a bright, high-resolution display in an intuitive location. The display is driven by a camera located at the rear of the vehicle, and is displayed on the left side of the mirror.
Safety and Convenience* - From a safety perspective, the Rear Camera Display Mirror should help reduce the risk of backup accidents, especially for vehicles with limited rear vision. Another benefit is the convenience associated with hooking up to boats, RVs and utility trailers.
