2011 Honda Odyssey: Rearview Camera Options

January 26, 2012


When I climbed into our 2011 Honda Odyssey earlier this week the rearview camera was set to the 'wide' angle you see above. I didn't think much of it until I tried to back up.

In a car with as big a rear blindspot as a minivan, I typically utilize the mirrors and camera rather than relying solely on the over-the-shoulder technique. In my opinion, this wide angle view is more disorienting than helpful when the car is moving. I prefer the other options...


The 'normal' view above is the best option for me. If neither of these two work for you, there is another, the 'overhead' view.
