Okay 2015 should have Blind spot warning and heated steering wheel....
OK. So I wanted to try this out and get familiar with the different way things would appear before the Vette days are here.Per Jeff's post above- from car and driver:
However, if you don't have auto-tilting mirrors, like the C7 apparently has, how the heck do you see the curb you're parking next to? I now realize this is why mirrors are normally in the 'traditional - you can see the side of your car' position.
Is there some special tip I missed?
STVETTE....Maybe reading text and watching a video will help with proper mirror adjustment.I found a very well done video.If drivers aren't use to using mirrors your Confidence in using them sitting in your baby will take some practice.Probably would be a future option but in the mean time,here some really good tips.Ask a friend to help too.Make believe he is driving a 7? It's all about the mirrors.
If you set you mirrors (as others have described) so they are just beyond where you can see any of your Stingray, combined with the center mirror, you should be able to virtually eliminate any blind spots. However for this to be effective, you must continually scan your 3 mirrors. By doing this you will see any car approaching from behind you on either side as well as of course directly behind you. Once you see a car approaching you can easily track it using the respective side mirror until that car comes into your peripheral side vision. You can confirm you have the correct mirror settings by watching cars approaching you from behind on an expressway and follow it from the center mirror (when they are a couple of cars back) and then entering the respective side mirror and then finally your peripheral side vision. If you don't continue to check your rear view mirror then it is certainly possible for you to miss a car coming along side.Any more New ideas or products on this Blind Spot problem?
Just took a 1000 mile trip with my wife’s new BMW 5X SUV with all those features and more! It has blind spot sensors and small triangles on the inside mirror cases that light when someone is in a blind spot. It has front and rear sensors and when I had to pull in quickly behind a large truck the front collision red light came on the dash. It did not break for me as I was on the brakes already-but it would have! The thing I like the most is the sensors that slightly vibrate the steering wheel when I stay on a divided highway or edge of road painted line!Even my CX9 has blind spot monitoring. According to the manual, it uses "radar waves" vs embedded sensors. (i.e. no external dimples, or monitors). It works very well... sometimes too well... to the point that when i'm driving a different car and i lazily check the side mirror, if there is no light then i change lanes, or turn... i have to remember that not every car has this feature! With that being said, a car with the C7'S blind spots, not to mention price tag, it sure would be nice to have this feature incorporated. And while they are at it, how about a proximity alert for forward and rear bumpers!
