Default Rear view mirror kit

My only gripe about the F-pace is enhancing the atrocious rear view visibility.

Does anyone know of a kit that can be installed to remedy this situation. Something like the rear view camera but one that is always on. GM has a built in camera window in the rear view mirror, but it only comes on when in reverse.

Any ideas?? thoughts??

What are you trying to see back there that the rear view camera or mirror aren't picking up?

the slant of the back widow makes visibility very limited ..... the car 's back view has large obstructions and blind spots!! I'm looking to have a better view of the traffic behind me ...... especially smokey!

You can press a little button with the image of a camera (lowest on the left side of your ICT screen) and it will turn the rear view camera on. Even while driving.

I wish the F-Pace had the rearview camera system Cadillac just created, that thing is awesome. Cadillac Rear Camera Mirror named 2015 Popular Science ?Best of What?s New? award winner.

Can you take a picture of the mirror like you describe?

That's for the Cadillac system, I'm talking about the Jag system where you said it shows rearview image.

If you have an F-Pace, take a pic of yours, if you can view the back via the backup camera through the rearview mirror.

I use a method whereby my side mirrors are aimed at my blind spot. Aim your side mirrors so that the view overlaps with the view on the edges of the rear view mirror. Adjust the vertical orientation of the side mirrors so that they provide the best view of a vehicle in your blind spot and you are good to go. No need for shoulder checks.
