2008 Mazda CX-9: The Back-Up Display in the Rearview Mirror

March 05, 2008

We've had the 2008 Mazda CX-9 in our fleet since last year and last night was my first time in it. It was also the first time that I've seen a car with a back-up camera display in the rearview mirror. Neat! Well, that was my first reaction until I realized how distracting it was.

The picture is so tiny that it's almost useless to me. I was squinting my eyes trying to make out what the little picture was telling me but then decided to just actually look at the rearview mirror instead and then look out the back window as I was backing up. You know, the "old-fashion" way.
