Hai Mansidea,

Thanks. Actually I tried that too...

The Shop I know quoted 7K for the RW Mirror Cum Screen which clips into the RVmirror. Told him I'd buy, if he can demo it to me, was not very impressed with the result, the brand he showed was some Chinese / Taiwan one. Don't know if there are ones which are better and clearer.

The Mirror is cost-effective, about Rs.250/- (broken & replaced already thrice) and functional, I have to back up in our office and at home garage against pretty tight space and the mirror has worked well.

Just type your text in the line right below the "ATTACH (pic #) ATTACH" code that represents the picture. The text will show up at the bottom of the pic. So on for each pic.

Guruji the interiors of your Scorpio rock! Very functional. I really liked the rear view mirror with the LCD. Especially due to the fact that it displays the distance to the nearest obstacle.

Can your VCD be upgraded to DVD? Is your SMS tracker capable of remotely shutting down the engine?

Thank you Sumit. If you see the last pic, it is that of the DVD player that has been installed separately. As mentioned, I don't have a VCD player but attached a PAL video card to the CD changer. That enabled me to play VCDs only.

The SMS tracker that I have can't shut down the engine remotely..

Guruji, you have a chalta phirta bioscope there!

Do you have entertainment sources installed in the other SUV also?

What is the use of the SMS tracker? Was it installed as an anti-theft device? When did you get it done and how much did you pay? Its got a GSM sim I believe?
