thread I suspect I'd have a better sense
given the state of my rear window.

I disagree, I think it'd give better vision of what's behind you and how close you are to stuff.

MrsJam would hate it though. She always distrusts one of my technological solutions to something non-tec that worked perfectly well in the first place.
permalink there is that, 'hey, let's spend £100 on a camera that shows what's behind us and beams it to...
...our rearview mirror!'

'or we could turn our heads?'

be more useful in the front corners where you have a blind spot cause by the shape on the bonnet.
permalink The camera is at the top of your windscreen, it'd help.
And it's about having a decent integrated dashcam that isn't getting in the way.
permalink wouldn't the angle be all wrong then?
permalink I wouldn't know, nobody's bought me one.
permalink if I win the Premium Bonds
I'll get you one for Christmas
permalink Aesome
permalink The rear camera to where the mirror should be
Is excellent for vans/trucks which don't have, by design, rear view
permalink this is exaclty what came to mind
that of for a lamboghini or other ridiculous car you can't see out the back
permalink Or you could just have a reversing camera
And put the picture in the normal place, on the stereo/entertainment screen, meaning your rearview mirror functioned as is.

I would like a forward facing camera for parking too though, seeing where your nose is can be tricky, lord knows having a reversing one has made getting into tight parking spaces much easier
