Re: 2014 Overland mirrors when in reverse

This feature is nearly useless since there is no adjustment to how much they tilt. When mine tilt, they give a nice view of the rear wheels, not the back of the vehicle. My mirrors have been disabled since, along with the equally useless rain sensing wipers. The wipers are neurotic or hopelessly random at best.

I love the rain sensing wipers!

I have it turned off in my GC. I loved the setup in my 2004 Tahoe. You could have both mirrors tilt or just one or neither. I had the passenger mirror tilt, but not the driver mirror.

Re: 2014 Overland mirrors when in reverse

I've turned the tilt-down on in a couple of situations and leave it off otherwise. For my needs a dedicated on/off button near the adjustment button on the door would be more useful than having to go thru the settings each time, so I use the 2 personal settings as an alternative to that.

Re: 2014 Overland mirrors when in reverse

So stupid it's not programmed where only the one side mirror goes down, the one on the side you're parking on obviously. They could program the mirror to be selected based on when you put it into reverse and have either the left or right blinker on, or just let you select which mirror to auto tilt in reverse with a push of the left or right mirror button on the driver door. As it is, I've never even used this feature. I have to be able to see if any cars are coming on the side of me, you know the front fender will move outward as you back up and if someone is coming up on the side too close I have to be able to see that.

Re: 2014 Overland mirrors when in reverse

I can't recall the last time I had to parallel park. My use of it is when offroad in tight spots.

Re: 2014 Overland mirrors when in reverse

I like the mirror tilt. It's handy for parking garages and other places with narrow parking spots. When I'm parallel parking I want to see the rear wheel and I can monitor the back end using the backup camera.

2014 Overland mirrors when in reverse

I read on the Durango forum that you can adjust how much the drivers side tilts. The way you do it is put the car in reverse, then after the mirrors tilt, adjust the drivers side where you like it. The next time it should go to that setting. The passenger side isn't adjustable though. I just tried this on my car. I'll see if it worked tonight.

I tried this on my May 2013 build Overland and it doesn't work. Probably one of those things added in later releases.

Re: 2014 Overland mirrors when in reverse

I was able to adjust the mirror angles by shifting into reverse, maintaining my foot on the break; then adjusting the angle for each mirror. I then shifted back into drive, then test the adjustment and it appears to work. I have a 2014 Overland. I'll test again, this evening, to verify the setting are permanent.

Be interested in knowing. Maybe I wasn't doing it right.

False alarm. I tested it again and it did not work. This time I wore my glasses.
