Hi Everyone,

I recently bought a 2018 Mazda 6 Signature and I am loving the car so far.
I am wondering if anyone has attempted to modify their side mirrors so that they auto tilt when the car is put into reverse. My mom has a Lexus that has this feature and it is super useful! I have to park in a super tight spot next to a retaining wall at my apartment and this feature would be very helpful. Does anyone know how I can program/install/modify my side mirrors to do this?

Thanks!

This is something I am interested to follow! If you are willing to make an experiment, you can try Arduino. I don't know if it is possible but I think you can program it that way.

The trigger for the Arduino to work will be the reverse light. With all this mumbo-jumbo technologies, I don't know if it's safe to make a parallel connection with it. I've read somewhere here that it is connected to the BCM and it doesn't have a fuse.

Arduinos are cool little devices, but I have no idea how to program one of those...ahaha
