Here at your friendly local dealership, we enjoy helping you to stay informed about emerging technologies. One such technology that's been around for a while but is gaining popularity is called the auto-dimming mirror. When engaged, this technology can keep high beams from other vehicles away from your eyes.

Even though they are not all designed in the same way, most auto-dimming mirrors include several similar technologies. These include microprocessors, electrochromic gels, mirrors, and sensors. The auto-dimming process begins when the sensors gather information about high beams. Once gathered, microprocessors analyze this information and produce electrical currents in response. When these currents transit the electrochromic gel, they cause a chemical reaction that darkens the gel and the incoming light. In the process, the light dims enough so that you can clearly see what is going on around you.

You can experience these amazing mirrors for yourself by taking one of our dealership vehicles for a test drive. Contact us today to avail yourself of this unique opportunity.
