    I drove my sons 23 Platinum Tundra, really liked you can see what's behind you in the rearview camera. Would like to have that in my 2020 Tundra. Did some research on the internet and came up with kit, any body have any real experience with it. How well did it work, was is it quirky or work without any hitches? Are there any other options out there to look at it?

    I've got 2 of these, one in my Porsche and the other in my kid's Mazda CX30. Mine are made by VanTop. Not sure if that brand still exist but they are all similar. Touch screen, all time front and rear recording, stores on micro SD and playback on the mirror or on your PC. You can also turn off the screen and just use it like a normal mirror. Easy to install, just have to run the wires and find the right power supply for your needs. I didn't want it to always drawn power, so it turns off soon after turning the cars off. Seems good for the $. No major issues and I'm a repeat buyer.

    My rearview mirror has the HomeLink for the garage doors on the front, I'm concerned that I won't be able to use them if I go with this route. Any thoughts?

    Good concern - since this LED mirror simply straps over your existing one with Homelink, the buttons should still be available if they are on the bottom of the mirror. Might need to slide the rubber straps the LED mirror mounts with over a bit to give you the best touch.
