2014 Overland mirrors when in reverse

Someone else was driving my car, and when backing out of my garage, adjusted the mirrors somehow. Now every time I go in reverse, the mirrors tilt, but not in the direction they should- its not really useful at all. I have tried to adjust them, but its kind of hard to adjust the mirrors at the same time the car is in reverse. Does anyone have any suggestions for me on how to fix this? Is there a way to reset the mirrors to factory settings somehow?

They changed the settings to make them tilt for when you parallel park. Look under your settings tab and uncheck the the "tilt mirror in reverse" option

Re: 2014 Overland mirrors when in reverse

Yes, that was the first (and pretty much only) feature I immediately disabled on my MY12 Summit...I. Do. Not. Like. Mirrors. That. Change. When. Backing. Up.

I developed that, um...opinion...while driving my elderly dad's Caddy. (I also don't like seats that move when the vehicle is shut off)

I like when they tilt in reverse. But they somehow changed the way they tilt if that makes sense.

Put your foot on the brake and make believe you are in park.

From what I know they only tilt downwards so you can look for the curb when parallel parking. I tried it once and turned it off immediately.

I think I know what you mean. I have had this feature on many cars and liked it. However, the GC is kind of funky in the way they tilt.

Re: 2014 Overland mirrors when in reverse

I kind if like the way it works. If I know I am parking along a curve or something like that I bring up the settings screen and turn this feature ON. I can see the curb perfectly and make sure that I don't rub my wheels against it. Once done, I immediately turn the feature back OFF. I can make sure that I don't hit the curb. The mirrors return to their original position so nothing gets messed up by using the feature.

Re: 2014 Overland mirrors when in reverse

Speaking of mirrors, is there a setting to make them fold in when you kick the vehicle? Not that it makes the car in skinnier, the mirrors are already tiny, it just looks cool.

Nope - pressing the button is the only way.
