Most drivers are polarized about the small round mirror on the rearview mirror of the car. They like to use it very much. They think that if there is no small round mirror on the rearview mirror, their side parking and reversing into the garage will become a problem.Drivers who don’t like it find it an eyesore on their rear-view mirrors, not only affecting their aesthetics but also blocking their view.So is this little round mirror really useful or how to use it?I’ll tell you about it today.The main function of the small round mirror is to expand the field of vision. It is a wide Angle mirror. When it is pasted on the rearview mirror, you can see the blind area of the field of vision, so as to avoid some scratches when reversing.Then the small round mirror should be placed in the rearview mirror to have a larger field of vision.Inside upper corner of the rearview mirror When the small round mirror is attached to the inside upper corner of the rearview mirror, the field of view in the small round mirror is almost upward, you can see near the top of the car, which is meaningless.Similarly, the situation is even worse when it is placed on the side of the co-pilot’s rearview mirror. The rearview mirror on the side of the co-pilot’s side in the driver’s seat is far away, and if a small round mirror is added, the vision may be more restricted. Therefore, we first exclude placing it on the inner upper corner of the rearview mirror.The inner lower corner of the rearview mirror on the driving side does not increase the field of vision much, and the field of vision of the rearview mirror is almost the same as its own, but a small round mirror is a bit awkward, a bit blocking the field of vision of its own rearview mirror.But on the side of the passenger side of the rearview mirror is also a little useful, can see the right side of the car body behind the blind area, but this is still no use in driving, the small round mirror is too small, far from the driver’s seat, observation is not convenient, in some parking lots and other places can be used.The small round mirror on the lateral upper corner of the rear view mirror can clearly see the blind area behind the car, which helps the driver is quite big, sometimes the driver is just a little bit of vision when reversing, and the small round mirror can help the driver to avoid obstacles in the blind area of vision, avoid scratches.Installed on the passenger side is the same effect, but the effect is a little worse, or the same problem, far from the driver.The small round mirror installed in the lower corner of the rear view mirror can increase the view of the outside of the rear wheel, which is very helpful for side parking, and in the process of driving lane change and overtaking are useful.The same is true of the lower outer corner of the rear view mirror on the co-pilot’s side, which increases the view of the outside rear wheel on the co-pilot’s side.Conclusion: the rearview small round mirror is placed in different positions of the rearview mirror, increasing the field of vision is different. If it can be placed in the upper and lower corners of the rearview mirror, it is more practical. How to place it depends on the needs of the driver.
