Ford's mirror-based sat-nav

A new sat-nav system fitted alongside the rear-view mirror is now available from Ford dealers.

Mirror Navi allows drivers to use the navigation system at the same time as they check the rear view.

The new system can be fitted by dealers in less than an hour and is classed as a fitted navigation system for insurance purposes which could help to reduce premiums.

The Mirror Navi has tinted and dimming mirror glass, a battery charging connection and anti-theft security. It has a 3.5-inch screen, colour display with 2D or 3D mapping.

Other features include destination memory, Eco Route software that finds more fuel-efficient routes and maps and voice directions for more than 70 countries and languages.

The Mirror Navi system fits all Ford models and costs 299 plus dealer fitting charges.
