Tilt down mirrors in reverse?
 
I have a 2011 Laredo package with the reverse camera, but when I shift to reverse the side mirrors do not tilt down. I checked the manual and looked for the setting on the instrument panel display but did not find it in the menus. Should it be there?
I really miss the tilt mirrors, had them on my aspen.
thanks for any help

From the manual, if you don't see this option then you either didn't scroll far enough down or it's not enabled on the Laredo, it works fine on my Overland.

Customer-Programmable Features (System Setup)
Personal Settings allows you to set and recall features
when the transmission is in PARK. If the transmission is
out of PARK or the vehicle begins moving, a warning
message SETUP NOT AVAILABLE, is followed in three
seconds by, VEHICLE NOT IN PARK.
Press and release the UP or DOWN button until Setup
displays in the EVIC.
Use the UP or DOWN button to display one of the
following choices.

Tilt Mirror in Reverse
When this feature is selected, the outside rearview mirrors
will tilt downward when the ignition switch is in the
RUN position and the transmission shift lever is in the
REVERSE position. The mirrors will move back to their
previous position when the transmission is shifted out of
REVERSE. To make your selection, press and release the
SELECT button until a check-mark appears next to the
feature showing the system has been activated or the
check-mark is removed, showing the system has been
deactivated.

This option is not on Laredo. I think it starts from LTD

I turned mine off also. They tilted down too much for me.

It still may be programmable through the dealer computer, if you can find someone with the computer that is willing to go through the options. I know on my WK, it isn't a customer programmable option, but it is in the options that the dealer can program.

Atleast all of you knew of this feature. I have the overland and this feature is news to me. Can anyone guess the fist thing I will be doing when I get up.

This is also news to me as well. My brother was surprised that the mirrors didn't tilt down on the Overland like his cars. I'll have to go through the menu and see if I can find the setting.

So I found the mirror setting this weekend and tried it out. It works but I agree with others that the preset angle is just too low to the ground. And since I use my mirrors mostly when backing into the garage I decided to leave this setting off. If only there was a way to reprogram the angle.

i've never liked this feature. i haven't used it in the GC, but my other cars have always tilted the mirror too far as well.

Interesting. My Limited 11 with rear camera does not have this option at all in the EVIC.
