Ford's small new innovation deserves special recognition

It’s one of those things you see and you think to yourself, “Why didn’t I think of that?” While it may not be that big of a deal we feel Ford’s new backup camera deserves some acclaim. Instead of embedding the rear-view camera system in the navigation system like most cars, Ford will be fitting a back up camera right in the rear-view mirror in some of its models. The $450 option is available on the F-series Super Duty, Lincoln Mark LT, Ford Expedition, Lincoln Navigator and the Mazda CX-9.

Now with no major movement of the head, the driver can look directly at the rearview mirror and at the rearview camera just by moving their eyes.
