This month, Nissan has debuted its Nissan Smart Rearview Mirror, which is the world’s first LCD monitor that helps provide even more rearward visibility for drivers than before. Showcased in the all-new 2014 Nissan Rogue, the Smart Rearview Mirror allows the driver to switch between the LCD monitor and the traditional rearview mirror, depending on the driver’s preference. The Smart Rearview Mirror is built into the structure of the traditional rearview mirror, with an additional built-in LCD monitor that can be activated in place of the conventional mirror. A high-resolution camera mounted on the rear of the vehicle provides the driver with a clear, unobstructed rear view, which allows the driver to feel more comfortable in any driving situation.
