Automatic Glareresistant Ec Mirror General

During nighttime driving, if a large difference in intensity exists between the surrounding light and the light reflected off the inside rear view mirror from the headlights behind, an automatic glare-resistant EC (Electrochromic) mirror automatically reduces the reflection rate of the mirror and thus dampens the glare from the mirror.

► This system uses 2 sensors (surrounding light detection sensor, rear light detection sensor) that are present in the inside rear view mirror to detect the difference between the intensity of light in the environment, and the light that the inside rear view mirror receives from the rear of the vehicle.

► When the ignition switch/engine switch* is changed from OFF to IG-ON, this system defaults to AUTO mode.
