If you are looking at the mirror at this angle you would see outside the opposite window, that’s the way light works.I would say if it was a mirror you would see the vault cover, but if it was a screen displaying a camera view, you would see outside of the truck. It would be useless to display inside the vault.
Just my thoughts.....
All GM large vehicles for starters offer this as an option, both SUV’s and Trucks and have for a couple years. This wouldn’t be mind blowing new technology by any means, and it would likely be necessary given the design of the vault.Display screen mirrors are not exactly new. Magna launched its ClearView mirror in 2017. The latest version (which is presumably the CT version +/-) combines three cameras into one screen: the two side view and the rear view to create a single panoramic camera view
When it is off, it has mirrored surface and that is what we are seeing here.
Just my thought but the tailgate camera seems like it would be too low for a rear view. Like I mentioned before, I always expected them to put a camera up at the apex of where the two windows meet, but I do not know where the camera locations are but there are at least 9 (2 left/right fenders, 2 left/right B pillars, 2 on windshield, 1 front bumper, 1 inside facing cab, 1 tailgate). HW4 has places for 12, right? Or was it 10?if they have ANY camera capable of being seen in the rear view mirror.. why not have ALL camera's be visible there.. jsut need a software setting to flip which feed to use.
So... we have seen EVERY indication we are getting a camera on the tailgate.. has anyone seen anything about a rear facing camera with a higher mount.. or a plug in for a camera you can put o top of a load... I am picturing when hauling a box trailer.. that rear view camera they have shown us isn't going to show much... and STRONGLY suspect Tesla has already figured something out for this.
I am not convinced of what the image shows at all. I would like to see the ‘mirror’ straight on, but I suspect we won’t have to wait much longer to find out the truth one way or another. It is true that looking at a mirror from the side should present a view of items on the other side of the normal. It is true that there are many more slats in the tonneau cover. So nothing about the image makes sense.The suggestion is that the review is displaying a digital macro lens view of just 6 slats of the tonneau cover (which has like 50 slats total), brightly lit?
Is this CT having an OCD out-of-body experience?
Franz went tambour crazyThat's just the tonneau cover for the the rearview mirror
that’s not necessarily true, depending on what you mean by “mirror”It is true that looking at a mirror from the side should present a view of items on the other side of the normal.
