    Have you had a chance to see how the camera “mirror” does when someone is behind you with bright lights? I’m curious if it just completely washes it out or if you can still see well.

    I've used it a fair amount at night. It does a good job when powered on and doesnt just go white when someone is behind me. It can be a little to much in your face tho. Like when going through town at night with lots of streetlights and signs. I sometime turn it off and use it as a regular mirror under those conditions and it's really good.

    What are your thoughts on the remote start? Has it caused any problems for you?

    I had a problem with the initial install. They wire tied a modual to my brake pedal and it ripped out a wire. Lol Dumbasses! After they repaired that the sensitivity was set too tight and the alarm was going off for no reason. They adjusted that and it's been pretty solid since. I had a time where I remote started and then when I put the key in and turned it the truck turned of then restarted. ??? Other than that I like it. I haven't really tested the range yet.
