Agree 100% would rather it be on the mirror, I think it’ll just take getting used to.. hopefully!
Not sure what you're doing that your mirrors get that covered in dirt and mud (given the location and direction they face) but if they are in fact getting so covered in dirt and mud that you wouldn’t be able to see BSW light then you’re main issue should be the fact that your mirrors need to be cleaned so that you can use them. Same goes with snow/ice covering the mirror.. it needs to be thawed and clear for visibility and safe driving. If your mirrors are covered there is no need to have a BSW light because you would then need to look over your shoulder before making a lane change anyways. I’m sure this why they have always been put on mirrors, simply because that is where you are looking to see if anyoneActually, I much prefer it being inside as I don't have to worry about dirt/mud/snow covering it.
Now that you mention it a Heads Up Display would be nice to have for collision warnings, speed, fuel level, my hunger level, a TV guide, and my wife’s annoyance level! ? ?If the alert is in your LOS to mirror it would serve you better if it were closer to you. It also eliminates all risk of coverage by being inside. I don't see anyone complaining about the brake alert not being on the windshield ???
I think putting bladder level up there would be a nice touch. But I must say, wife's annoyance level should be a priority. It would be nice to see that gauge correlate with rpms and speed.Now that you mention it a Heads Up Display would be nice to have for collision warnings, speed, fuel level, my hunger level, a TV guide, and my wife’s annoyance level! ? ?
That seems like that could be more harmful than helpful. The broader the BSM sensors angle is the less it’s actually detecting your “blind spot.” What if the light was on and you look in the mirror seeing a car is approaching in the next lane.. you have no idea if someone is actually in your blind spot if you were to need over immediately, you would have to then look over your shoulder to make sure there wasn’t a second car in your “blind spot” defeating the purpose of the blind spot monitor. I think they have the sensor angle just right in the PP but I just don’t like where the light is located.Whether the light was inside or outside, I wish it would come on sooner when the vehicle in the adjacent lanes were further back. My other SUV has the light coming on much sooner. In comparison the PP light comes on way too late.I tried to find a way to adjust that distance like the adaptive cruise control setting but no success.
