ASA Electronics Releases Replacement Rearview Mirror Monitor

Tue Aug 1, 2017

150160038656548.jpgELKHART, Ind. - ASA Electronics has introduced the latest Voyager Replacement Rearview Mirror Monitor.

Changing lanes, merging into traffic and backing up are always filled with some amount of risk. The new mirror monitor is designed to make those experiences as manageable as they have ever been.

Real-time, crystal-clear images of the vehicle’s blind spots are displayed right on the rearview mirror via a digital signal. The new Voyager VOM74MM uses a highly-reflective screen that acts as a mirror when the monitor is not active. The VOM74MM will replace the Voyager VOM73MM to be used in place of the standard OEM option in light, medium and heavy duty vehicle applications.

The improved robust design of the VOM74MM makes it ideal for commercial vehicle use. The new tactical control buttons along the bottom of the monitor screen enhance the user experience. The tactical control buttons make it easier to manually change camera source selection and adjust the picture. The monitor includes a 7-inch TFT LCD screen with a 16:9 aspect ratio. It supports three camera inputs for rear and side camera applications. The monitor can be powered manually or automatically triggered by 12VDC power.

The Voyager mirror monitor works with all Voyager cameras and can replace rearview mirrors on Ford, GM, Dodge and Sprinter chassis.
