That's exactly what I do...and I've been setting my mirrors that way now for 10 years. Basically, when you're looking from left to right, it becomes one continuous, connected view across the vehicle. "Standard" mirror setting is totally overlapped and duplicate. With the wide setting, once a car disappears from view in my driver's side mirror it appears in the rear-view.lewisra said:Here's a trick I learned from an engineer.
1. In drivers seat, place head against side window and adjust driver side mirror to just see the door handles.
2. Sit in middle or adjust body to lean as though sitting in middle. Adjust passenger side mirror to just see the door handles on passenger side.
Using all three mirrors ALL blind spots are eliminated when driving. Try it, it works.
