Display mode for included rear-view cam

If your dash isn't equipped with a touchscreen receiver, this Gentex mirror/camera combo is the perfect way to gain a rear-view video feed. The inobtrusive rear-view cam mounts inside your vehicle on the rear window, and the mirror replaces your current factory mirror thanks to an included universal mount. Once the system is installed, you'll gain a selectable HD video view that you can use not just when backing up but also as you drive forward, reducing blind spots by giving you a wider field of vision.

HomeLink integration

With built-in HomeLink technology, you'll be able to control your garage doors, your security gate, assigned lights in your home, and more.

Installation

Installation will require the replacement of your factory rear-view mirror, and running wire for power and video between the Gentex's ADVGENFDMHL1 mirror and the rear-view camera. If you have not attempted this kind of job before, professional installation is recommended.

3-year warranty

Gentex backs this versatile mirror with a generous 3-year warranty.

Features

Rearview Mirror-Monitor: The Gentex Rearview Mirror-Monitor does double duty as a standard auto-dimming rearview mirror and a rearview display monitor. It replaces your vehicle's existing factory rearview mirror. Once installed, the mirror-monitor can be angled for the best viewing angle. You can toggle between a standard Auto-Dimming Mirror mode or Rear Video Display mode (this system does not offer automatic rearview switching).

  • Auto-Dimming Mirror Mode: In this mode the Gentex Rearview Mirror-Monitor operates as a standard mirror with auto-dimming. The Auto-Dimming feature detects headlight glare from trailing vehicles and darkens to the precise level necessary to preserve driver vision, eliminating distracting glare.
  • Rear Video Display Mode: In this mode the Gentex Rearview Mirror-Monitor displays a full-screen video image from the installed backup camera. Unlike most mirror-monitors where the video display is only a third or half the size of the mirror, the Gentex Rearview Mirror-Monitor's video display fills the entire mirror-monitor with a resolution of 1280 x 275. You can  adjust the video display brightness, move the camera image display up/down, rotate the camera image clockwise and counter-clockwise, as well change the intensity of red and blue color levels.

Note: The rearview mirror-monitor comes with a universal mounting bracket. Crutchfield also offers a variety of vehicle specific mounting brackets which can be purchased separately (see accessory list). In addition to these brackets, you'll also need a windshield mount repair kit which can be purchased at most auto parts store (sold separately).

Interior Backup Camera:  The included backup camera features a custom-designed, high dynamic range CCD imager with pixel-level intelligence that self-adjusts to bright and dark areas of each scene. The camera also offers a wide-angle lens which is double the field-of-view of many other backup cameras for improved vision behind your vehicle. The camera comes with three different angled brackets for easy mounting to the inside rear window in a variety of vehicles with varying rear window angles. The camera can be angled was installed for the best viewing angle.

  • 17°-29° Angled Bracket: for most coupes & sedans
  • 30°-54° Angled Bracket: for crossovers & wagons
  • 55°-90° Angled Bracket: for most SUVs & Trucks

Note: This rearview camera system is meant as a visual aid only; never solely rely on the backup camera. In addition to using the camera, always physically look to make sure everything is clear around your vehicle.

HomeLink Car-to-Home Automation: The Gentex Rearview Mirror-Monitor is even equipped with HomeLink wireless system control consisting of three integrated buttons that can be programmed to operate garage doors, security gates, home lighting and more. Now, you can leave your hand-held radio-frequency remote at home.

Installation: The Gentex Rearview Mirror-Monitor replaces your vehicle's existing factory rearview mirror, while the backup camera mounts to the inside of your vehicle's rear windshield. The rearview mirror-monitor comes with a 7.5" power & ground harness which requires a hardwire connection to your vehicle's wiring. A 10.5' mirror-monitor harness and 50" camera cable plug into one another and between the mirror-monitor and backup camera.

Note: This is not a wireless system.

Q
Does this mirror have an option for an external mounted camera that will attach to the bumper on my 1995 F-150?
[ Connor  Mar 30, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
The mirror comes with its own wired camera. Guess you should be able to mount that camera wherever you chose.
[ Robert  Mar 30, 2019 ]
Q
Does the screen flip horizontally, so as to replicate a real rear-view mirror?
[ marcus  Feb 18, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
This screen does not have that flip ability. It does have a lever where the flip control would be, but its to toggle the mirror between modes: mirror mode and backup camera view mode. The good news is that in mirror mode, there is an Auto-Dimming feature that detects headlight glare from trailing vehicles and darkens to the precise level necessary to preserve driver vision My Bio: https://www.crutchfield.com/bio/Paul

Q
Can this mirror do split screen for 2 camera view? Can you connect 4 camera to it?
[ Robert  Feb 17, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
Not a real expert in this area, I do not think that you will be able to directly connect a second camera to the mirror. There is no mention in the operating manual of the possibility of hooking up more than one camera. Otherwise, I do like the mirror as for it's significant reduction of the so-called blind spots.
[ Robert  Feb 18, 2018 ]
Q
Does this product include DVR function?

The Gentex ADVGENFDMHL1 is a brand new product in our inventory, and we only have preliminary information from the manufacturer. It does not appear that it's designed to record video though. For more details or to discuss further, please feel free to contact an Advisor directly by phone (888.955.6000) or online chat. Thanks! My Bio: https://www.crutchfield.com/advisors/larry
