The Gentex Full Display Mirror optimizes visibility by providing an unobstructed, panoramic rearward view. It also affords unique yet critical bimodal functionality. It can operate either as a standard automatic-dimming rearview mirror or a rear video display.
Why the Dual Mode?
Optimum Rear View
Display mode provides a radically improved rear view in order to enhance driving safety. Camera view is not hindered by headrests, luggage, C/D pillars, small rear window, etc.
Mirror mode provides a permanent backup solution should the camera or display become non-operational.
Mirror mode may be necessary should camera become blocked due to dirt or ice. Viewing the Vehicle Interior – Mirror mode allows the driver to view vehicle interior, rear seats, passengers, etc.

Custom Integration of Entire System
Gentex is your complete rear vision solution supplier. Imager – processor and software – display – camera lens and vehicle integration… Gentex supplies it all as a complete integrated system.
Rear Vision System Leader
No one has more rear vision experience than Gentex, which is why over the years we’ve been the leading supplier of intelligent rear vision systems for OEM racing programs, including Audi, Nissan Motorsports, Toyota Gazoo Racing, Cadillac, Porsche Motorsports LMP1, and others.
To blend the benefits of both mirrors and displays, Gentex offers a hybrid rear vision system that uses three cameras to provide a comprehensive view of the sides and rear of the vehicle.
The side-view cameras are discretely housed in downsized exterior mirrors, and their video feeds are combined with that of a roof-mounted camera and stitched together into multiple composite views that are streamed to the driver via Gentex’s Full Display Mirror. The driver can choose between various viewing modes that present the three camera feeds independently or stitched together to form a single, wide-angle view.
Provides an unobstructed view of sides and rear of the vehicle.
Mirror views available if the digital view is disrupted.
Smaller exterior mirrors offer weight savings, improved aerodynamics, and enhanced fuel efficiency.
Ready to Implement
Comprehensive system designed to meet automaker, driver, safety and regulatory requirements.
No need to retool vehicle interiors to accommodate additional displays.
System can be integrated with side blind zone alerts and other ADAS functions.
The mirror is the most logical, intuitive and cost-effective location to display information critical to the driving task. Over the years, we’ve integrated a wide variety of displays in the mirror, including VFDs, LCDs, LEDs, and active matrix video. Whether it’s compass, temperature, rear park assist, around view monitor, ADAS alerts, or rear camera display, Gentex can help you integrate it into the mirror.
