A new aftermarket interior rear-view mirror with a built-in OnStar module, branded as OnStar FMV, became publicly available on July 24, 2011. It provides some of the features an OEM system has, such as Automatic Crash Response, Stolen Vehicle Tracking, Turn-by-Turn Navigation, and Roadside Assistance.
In 2011, OnStar introduced the OnStar FMV system. The system, which embedded both the OnStar system, as well as Bluetooth hands-free connectivity, into an automatically dimming rear view mirror that replaced the existing rear view mirror in nearly any vehicle that was not equipped from the factory with the OnStar system. The system was able to provide all of the features of OnStar, except for those services which required integration of the vehicle's computer (such as Stolen Vehicle Slowdown and Automatic Airbag Deployment Notification). Instead, the system included sensors that detected irregular movement of the mirror and triggered a call to the OnStar emergency response center. Wireless service was provided through Verizon Wireless. The system was compatible with most vehicles manufactured from model year 2000 to 2014, as long as the vehicle was not equipped from the factory with the OnStar system, however, OnStar noted that the system \"should not be installed in vehicles such as the Jeep Wrangler, Toyota FJ Cruiser, Hummer, Recreational Vehicle (RV's), or Semi Truck\" due to the \"extreme windshield angles and/or excessive size\" and therefore had the \"inability to detect a crash\". Professional installation from an OnStar FMV retailer, such as select automotive dealerships and electronic retailers (such as Best Buy), was recommended. An annual OnStar subscription for the FMV cost US$299.00.

The red button with the cross on it is for emergencies, and the phone or \"white dot\" button allows you to make phone calls just as if you were using a cell phone.

Get the big picture with this OnStar rear view mirror with 4.3\" backup camera display that activates when you shift into reverse. You'll lose none of your mirror's or vehicle's existing features while gaining an important safety feature found in many of today's well-equipped vehicles.
Perhaps you've seen this helpful new technology in a friend's new car or truck. You loved how it works the rear view mirror looks like a normal mirror until you put the car in reverse and then a crisp panoramic picture of what's behind your vehicle pops up on your mirror. You no doubt appreciated the new peace of mind and added degree of safety when backing up. This high quality mirror comes with a universal harness that lets you connect it to any standard aftermarket camera, including our own high-grade universal camera, which is available separately (see our online catalog). The outline of the hidden 4.3\" monitor is completely invisible until you put your car in reverse, unlike many less advanced systems available in the aftermarket. Professional installation is recommended.
Switch between the Rear Camera Mirror and the traditional rearview mirror by pulling or pushing the tab under the inside rearview mirror. Adjust the traditional mirror first, then change to the Rear Camera Mirror.
This means that they can can take a lot of space on your windshield once you install one, because of that please reconsider to read the dimensions and specs of the rearview mirror camera that you want to buy.
Instead, it offers a rear-facing cam on the mirror itself, which is ideal for rideshare drivers (see is this camera is in our top Uber dash cam or maybe in our best Lyft dash cam pick) and others who want to record inside their car.
With that said be ready for some high-quality and smooth videos and not that anyone wants that and no one wishes to happen to anybody but just in case you are in an accident and the insurance companies are known for giving a hard time, believe that with this rearview mirror dash camera it will never happen because of the quality and the range and the angles of the footage.
Due to the dashcam and their plenty of functions, you will not adapt to it for a few days, but with using it for a while you will see that it will be better with the rearview mirror cam and the back-up cam than the traditional reflecting mirrors.
Also not sure why some of you feel you need to bring up GM's 6.2L V8. This review used the 5.3L. Like it or not, it is an almost direct comparison to the 5.4L Triton which stomps the 5.3L in usable torque and over all torque numbers. I also think Ford isn't resorting to a 3.08 rear end to get their mpg number either. This truck reviewed has the load rating of a 1/2 ton, but the actual power of a Colorado if you load it up or try and tow anything with it. A truck for people who really don't want/need a truck. 59ce067264
