I would imagine that it would automatically adjust for that Swishy, new car mirrors do, dunno how or why but they do and it beats getting a cold arm

But if you get a problem with doohickie or need to tow a trailer with out camera what happens?

I guess some clip on caravan mirrors

Or is the camera mounted in the little whats it above the door ?

I find it interesting that Mercedes used cameras to reduce the drag of a large mirror, than the owner fits a roof mounted horn each side just to up the drag.

Yeah, but the horns have a pointy thing on the front end to keep the wind out and the noise in.

No good for Swishy. They are Euro style!

I think they are quite brilliant.

I think those mirrors would create a blind spot for the driver
