    I'm trying to find a nice, large, sharp, clear rear view camera mirror... but the thing is, their are like 9000 different ones available, and every single one seems to do 57 things I could not care less about. I simply want to use it as a rear view mirror, as trying to use my rear view mirror, I have such terrible small view between the roof, seats, headrest, and 5% limo black tint... I just want a 100% full view, with no obstructions, or tint in the way. Good night vision would be even better. Any suggestions ? And btw, I already have a front and rear view camera, (mostly for my ride sharing) so I don;t need my rear view mirror to record anything...

    Any suggestions ?

    LMK if you find a good replacement mirror. I would buy too. My trim has this chunky mirror with auto dimming (sucks) and numerous buttons for homelink and garage door openers on a big chunky plastic bevel. Reminds me of a keyboard for an old windows computer. Don’t use any of it. A nice slim rear view mirror would be much better!

    On my 2009 I managed to swing the mirror upside down. You still get the auto-dimming feature, but the fat part of the bezel is now up by the ceiling where it blocks less of the view out the front, and the shape of the mirror is now wider at the top, which better matches the image of the rear window. It's a bit tricky with the wires powering the mirror, but it was possible in the '09.

    I tried this on my 2016. Does not work.
