2020 INFINITI QX80 - Smart Rearview Mirror (if so equipped)

The Smart Rearview Mirror is housed within the structure of the traditional rearview mirror, with a built-in LCD monitor that can be activated in place of the conventional mirror. The video feed from the rear comes from a small camera—separate from the backup camera—mounted behind the vehicle’s rear hatch glass, just beneath the center high-mounted brake light. This way, the camera’s view out of the back can be cleared in inclement weather or dusty conditions by using the wiper and defroster.

The camera view displayed on the LCD monitor mimics the appearance of a traditional rearview mirror, but without the potential obstructions. Rearward visibility is free from in-vehicle obstructions associated with traditional rearview mirrors, such as C-pillars, tall passengers, or large packages.

INFINITI’s Smart Rearview Mirror provides a wider view than standard rearview mirrors, and it’s especially effective in low-light conditions, like in parking garages and during night driving where it helps to reduce glare. When using the LCD screen, the LED headlamps of following vehicles may appear to flicker. This is normal and not a malfunction.

The inside rearview mirror also has a reflective optical view that shows a regular mirror-view. The driver can easily and quickly toggle between the camera view and the standard rearview mirror view using a flip-switch at the bottom of the mirror.
The driver is able to see traffic conditions behind the car through the clear video imagery, as well as use the rearview mirror to check on passengers and/or pets in passenger compartment.

The mirror has six buttons on the bottom edge. From left to right, the first three are the programmable HomeLink® buttons. The next button is the menu button and the next two are for adjustments.

When the indication function is ON, the HomeLink® icons and the menu display on the LCD screen. The LCD screen is NOT a touchscreen, the icons correspond to the buttons on the bottom of the mirror.

Using these buttons, the picture displayed on the LCD screen can also be adjusted up, down, right, and left. These buttons rotate the picture slightly so the image goes up on the left and down on the right or vice versa.

The mirror will store the settings for all main menu selections in the memory after every button release and will be used at the time of the startup.

Pressing the menu button repeatedly cycles the mirror through the following:
