+1 for Ron on the idea to hook the backup sound into the dash stereo. Very slick.. Going on my winter upgrade list!
Steve, the side view cameras are a bit over rated in my opinion, just can't train my brain to look to the center of the dash rather than at my mirrors when I change a lane. The display switches automatically when the turn signal is turned on. I guess some guys really like them though. I'm just old school I guess.

Now side mounted lazer beams that would be great, bwa ha ha ha ha.....

Would those lasers be used before or after you scare the life out of them with the air horns?

I guess I'm old school as well. I have the nicer "bus style" heated mirrors and they work fine.

Another trick that works for me is to use the rear camera to pass. I look for a wide open lane in front of the guy I'm passing as I come around and then I sneak a peak at the rear camera and watch for my TOAD to pass the front of the guy I'm passing.

Lasers sound nice.. Might need an inverter upgrade though.. :-)

Yep, and the camera is also nice to make sure the wheels didn't fall off your toad and all those people waving at you as they go buy aren't just being friendly.

I have the same mirrors as you and love them though. Being able to adjust them with out having the wife stick her arm out the window is great...
