The Gentex auto-dimming interior mirror with RCD will be standard equipment on the RAV4X in Europe and is available as a stand-alone option on the Sport and Limited RAV4 trim levels in North America. The RCD Mirror contains a liquid crystal display (LCD) that works with a video camera mounted at the rear of the vehicle to provide a view directly behind the vehicle while backing up. When the vehicle is shifted into Reverse, a 6cm (2.4-inch) diagonal LCD display appears automatically through the auto-dimming mirror’s reflective surface.
The display disappears when the vehicle is shifted into any other gear. The capability for the display to appear through the mirror’s surface is made possible by Gentex “transflective” coating and lighting techniques, which result in a bright, high-resolution colour image.
