Replace External Rear View Mirrors with Cameras
I have a F150 with large towing mirrors. Needles to say they can get in the way in tight spots. My F150 also has a backup camera and it is great. The Rapture has a forward camera for trails. I have thought why can't side cameras be placed instead of mirrors with dispaly screens in the upper corners above the dash (I have my GPS in the left corner of the windshield/dash area). There are so many things that can be done with viewing angles, resolution, locations, and even night vision with cameras. This sure would reduce wind drag, especially at highway speeds. This may have already been thought about with all the parking assist stuff out. Anyway, just an idea. BTW Pass this on to the racing guys. Maybe they could use it if the rules allow. Thanks Ray C.
