Gentex 5Am Overview

And, less glare means less eyestrain and driver fatigue. This model also includes a compass built into the right side of the display.


Research shows that during nighttime driving, headlight glare from the vehicles traveling behind you can be blinding. Even after the glare is removed, an after-image remains on the eye's retina which creates a blind spot for the driver. This phenomenon, known as the Troxler Effect, postpones driver reaction time by up to 1.4 seconds. At 60 mph, a car will travel over 123 feet in this amount of time. Gentex auto-dimming mirrors make nighttime driving safer by detecting glare and automatically dimming to protect driver vision.


Because Gentex literally invented the electrochromic mirror industry, we also had to develop the supply base, manufacturing techniques, equipment, and testing methods. It was a long learning curve. But today, our experience, proprietary manufacturing techniques, and hard work has paid off, because no other glare-reduction mirror provider in the world can match our manufacturing capabilities - not in yields, quality, or volume.


What's more, the Gentex 5a Auto-Dimming Rear-View Mirror comes with a self-calibrating digital display compass. You'll always know which direction you've headed thanks to the eight directional readouts (N, NW, W SW, S, SE, E, and NE).


We also offer any of these mirrors with a Back-Up Camera screen built right into the display. See our Auto-Dimming Back-Up Camera Mirrors under the safety section of our website.
