Overview of Auto-Dimming Rearview Mirrors

Every year, new vehicles are manufactured with technology aimed at making driving safe, fun, and convenient. At Mark Miller Toyota, we want you to be informed on these many features, how they work, and why they’re important. One of these features is auto-dimming rearview mirrors. If you’ve ever driven at night and been blinded by the vehicle behind you, you know how difficult it can be to see even for a few minutes after the vehicle is gone. This is called the Troxler Effect.

Anyone who has ever experienced the Troxler Effect, which temporarily slows down your reflexes and reaction time, will appreciate a vehicle with auto-dimming rearview mirrors. Auto-dimming mirrors have two sensors that are either cameras or photodetectors that detect a headlight’s glare and restricts how much light goes into your mirror, making it easier to drive at night.

If you need more information on auto-dimming rearview mirrors or any other automotive services, stop in at our Toyota dealership and test drive a vehicle.
