LaneFX - Blind Spots Revealed

A lot of new cars include detection systems that will alert the driver when a vehicle (or some other large object) is sitting in their blind spot. Drivaware is now selling a third-party solution that does more than just alert the driver when something is in their blind spot, it shows them.

When the turn signals are activated the LaneFX system will automatically move the corresponding side mirror outwards showing the driver what might be hiding in the vehicle’s blind spot. The LaneFX system can also include the ParkFX feature which will automatically tilt both side mirrors down while the vehicle is being driven in reverse.

The Drivaware LaneFX system can be installed on any car with power side mirrors and is available in a Basic Edition for $197, a Highway Edition for $242 and a Commuter Edition for $296 depending on what features you may need.

Ditch Your Stick-on Convex Blind Spot Mirrors Today

Stop Distorting Your Rearview and Compromising Your Side Mirror Vieweing Space

Drivaware has come up with something useful: the LaneFX , a controller that connects your power mirrors to your turn signals, so that when you signal (you do signal before you turn, right?), your mirrors swivel outward to show your blind spot. Hey, if this keeps just one cyclist out of the hospital, I'm happy.

Generally speaking, larger vehicles have larger rear blind spots. For example, the blind spot behind a typical sedan could only hide a small animal, while the blind spot of an SUV can hide small children, resulting in as many as 50 children being killed by reversing SUVs each year. The blind spot behind tractor trailers can contain entire vehicles, which is one reason many trucks carry warnings not to follow too close, such as "if you can't see my mirrors, I can't see you." This is partly because the driver's position is higher in a tractor-trailer.

Larger vehicles also have much larger front and side blind spots. Tractor-trailers have not only large rear quarter blind spots, but also a large blind spot directly to their left and to their front-right.

There are a number of products available to consumers to deal with the blind spot problem. Convex mirrors, often called "spot mirrors" can bring blind spots into view, but their optical properties impart a great deal of distortion so as to make it difficult to judge distances. Newer technologies using aspheric mirrors allows the blind spots to be virtually eliminated while minimizing distortion.

Drivaware Publishes Automakers' Scorecard on Driver Visbility and Average Blind Spot Zone Size

Automakers' average blind spot zones vary greatly. Automakers that produce larger, taller vehicles have larger blind spot zones than conventional passenger vehicles without impeded side and rearviews. All measurements do not account for the use of blind spot mirrors or blind spot detectors (like Valeo Raytheon's and Volvo's BLIS systems). Blind spot zone sizes are a combination of the side blind spot zones (as applicable in lane changes) but exclude the size of the rear blind spot zone that result when the vehicle is in reverse (backover condition).

LaneFX proven better solution to the blind spot problem than stick-on convex blind spot mirrors

Why use conventional, ineffective blind spot mirrors? LaneFX puts your side mirrors to work for your driving safety. It alerts you before changing lanes by showing you any trucks, SUV's, and passenger cars hiding in your blind spot side view mirror. Plus, LaneFX works with your vehicle's existing power side mirrors.

Learn how adjusting your power mirrors wide does not guarantee to eliminate blind spots

The Car Talk folks might like this concept, but why use 1960's technology to solve an increasingly important driving safety problem? Blind spot mirrors are no match for the simplicity, innovation and high-technology of the LaneFX system.

Unlike what you'd drive in Volvo XC90, S80, or Audi Q7 Lane Assist, LaneFX is not a fad or a car gadget! Auxiliary blind spot mirrors are not the the latest automotive safety technology to make lane changing and merging safer. As you activate your blinker, LaneFX swings your side mirror outward to show you what may be lurking in your vehicle's blind spot. LaneFX is more compatible with the latest turn signal mirrors than stick-on convex blind spot mirrors. Since LaneFX doesn't take away any of the mirror surface (unlike stick-on fish eye mirrors), you can see Muth turn signal LED's with ease. Turn signal mirrors and LaneFX are the ultimate in total driver awareness. Check the best-selling Muth turn signal mirrors and see how easily they're compatible with LaneFX for a powerful safety result.

  • blind spot mirrors
  • lane change
  • Total driver awareness and safe driving even with when used with radar detectors.
  • Consumer Reports stresses the importance of proper lane check prior to merging or changing lanes.
  • Sonus SideVUE, is a good example of stick-on gadgets for your blind spot mirrors, but without real benefit of driving safety that Lane FX provides on any vehicle equipped with power mirrors, guaranteed!
  • Prevent accidents: Always check your blind spot zone before changing lanes or merging into highway traffic.
