USA: First combination auto-dim, turn signal exterior mirrors shipped

By just-auto.com editorial team | 11 July 2001

Gentex Corporation has begun shipping what it claims are the world's first exterior automatic-dimming mirrors with built-in turn signal indicators to Southeast Toyota LLC for aftermarket installation on Tundras and Sequoias.

Muth Mirror Systems of Sheboygan, Wisconsin, developed the turn signal technology, called Signal Mirror.

It's comprised of seven red light-emitting diodes integrated into the mirror in the shape of a chevron, or arrow, that blink along with the vehicle's standard turn signals.

Gentex is purchasing turn signal modules from Muth to integrate into its exterior automatic-dimming mirror.
