VOXX Electronics announced on the eve of CES it will be the exclusive distributor of the Gentex Full Display Mirror—the rear view mirror with a rear video feed now offered in certain General Motors models.
The mirror, heavily advertised in Cadillac TV ads by General Motors, is heading to the aftermarket this March/April through VOXX.
Developed by Gentex, the mirror will be available in two models, one with HomeLink (garage door opener) and one without. The basic model ADVGenFDM1 will carry an expected street price of $999 including the rear camera will be available later this year. The HomeLink model ADVGENFDMHL1 will carry an expected street price of $1099 and will be available March/April.
Gentex’ Full Display Mirror remains unique as the full mirror converts to a high definition display with the flip of a switch to show an HD video stream behind the car. It reveals rear blind spots. So if adult passengers are in the back obstructing your rear view, or if you have large packages in the back seat, or if the car’s headrests or pillars prevent a clear rear view via standard mirrors, there is now another option.
When switched to video mode, the mirror shows a live HD feed of the road behind that doubles the rear view of a typical mirror.
To date, the mirror, with built-in LCD, has been offered on the Cadillac CT6 and XT5 and will be available on the Chevy Bolt and Cadillac Escalade.
The mirror display has 1280 x 275 resolution with automatic day/night brightness control. The camera for the system mounts inside the back glass of the car, so its an internal mount.
VOXX will also distribute other Gentex mirrors. The Gentex mirrors will display at the VOXX booth at CES, January 5-8 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
