if one needs to use the 'mirror dipping' function to avoid rear headlight glare, I assume the camera will tilt also!

I suspect you'll find you lose the ability to 'dip' the mirror when you install this.


Very good point re the dipping rear view mirror! Idea Or lack of...?

This device is attached to your existing mirror by 2 'elastic band' type loops which are on its rear. i.e. two loops of rubber go around the existing mirror with that rubber not being noticed to vehicle occupants (as it is built into the rear of the camera).

The problem as pointed out is the camera may block your dipping button. Or like mine block the auto dipping sensor. Drat.

Secondly who wants the power cable dangling down from the top of this camera/mirror to your cars USB power outlet. Therefore it probably requires (70 approx) hard wiring fitting or running the cable along the edge of the windscreen, down and along to your USB power.

The battery I believe lasts about 15 minutes.

Isn't it funny car manufacturers have so many optional extras like auto dipping mirror or reversing camera but have missed a trick here to put a camera into the rear mirror, charge say 200 and make a generous profit. Rolling Eyes

And do you run it as a dashcam? After all, this is what this thread is about.

Are you talking to me? Of course I don't run cameralert as a dashcam. I was simply responding to the previous post with what I hoped might be a helpful comment.

Tried to buy one of these this morning and found that the discount code RAC 03 does not work. Phoned the RAC shop and they said "we don't know that code."
Contacted ProofCam and they said they will provide me with a valid code.
Just had an email from them saying the 25% off code on PGSW site is expired! and they could give me another code which would give me 10% off.
The PGSW code clearly says "Expires 30 April" -- so what's going on??
Is any PGSW admin staff aware of this?
