Yup it was a joke. Nice catch.

GM officially got permission to add a rearview camera to its rear view mirror.
General Motors camera rearview mirror approved by NHTSA | Digital Trends

The new Honda accords have a passenger lane camera that comes on automatically when you flip the passenger lane turn signal. The view comes on in the center of the dash. Digital mirror and a real mirror. More eye distraction moving forward? Eyes moving to both, Idk. It sure is hard to not look at the dash every time you hit that turn signal.

I think we may be taking about two different things. Is yours a backup camera that only comes on in when you put it in reverse? The GM one can replace the mirror view with a wide angle rear camera view even when driving forward.

Back-up Camera , is it worth it?

Things sure changed since 2105 at GM this is what pops up every once in while or if you try to play with the nav settings while driving in the Sierra which I find funny as you have to look to hit the OK button.



Cheers
Doug

A rear view camera *is* keeping your eyes on the road. Same as a rear view mirror. They both look at the same piece of road. But only one of them works when you are towing a trailer.

While driving into Chattanooga on an interstate highway with lots of curves, I saw a billboard that read:

"If You Are Reading This We Will See You Soon"

and beneath was the name of a local auto body shop.
