    I want to research this more, but it looks like a camera could be added to the bottom of the passenger rear-view mirror that would be activated by the turn signal. I had this feature on a Honda Civic and miss it. I'm thinking it would be great for both sides.

    That would be a great addition for the trail and everyday parking situation...

    The Honda camera is molded into the passenger side mirror and is activated by the turn signal or a button on the turn signal level. I used it a lot.

    Now that's cool! I really like the forward IR camera. Putting blind spot mirrors on the fenders as shown in the linked page would save a lot of work by not needing to run wires through the doors. Thanks.
