Hi

We have a Cheyenne 660 so am assuming they are the same or similar. The blinds are held together with a magnet down each blind. There should be a piece at the top that opens around the rear view mirror to allow the blinds to meet.

To be honest I have removed the mirror as it was pointless. I couldnt see anything in the mirror. I do sometimes use the reverse camera as a rear view mirror. You can select AV2 with the remote to turn it on in foreward gears. You do need to be carefull though as it is in reverse so something passing you on the offside looks like its on the nearside but you soon get used to it.

Hope that helps

There is also a button on the remote control to reverse the image so that it will be correct. Well there is on my 2005 Autotrail anyway. Not sure about the newer ones.

Thanks for the prompt. Mine is a 2007 model. There isn't a button on the remote. However, I have just been out and had a look and if you select menu from the screen buttons there is an option for mirror. I will certainly be using that more more. Will need to remember to reselect when reversing.

You learn something every day.

Can't you drive just using the door mirrors? I have a camera for going backwards as there is a huge blind spot, as it was already fitted, but going forwards the camera is all but useless, except to see who's in the car behind.

Hi

I find it useful for judging when it is safe to pull in if overtaking, especially if the speed of the vehicle I'm overtaking is similar to mine. Also, I can keep an eye on the bike on the rack.

Hi arty23,
We have a 2007 Cheyenne 696 Low bed so I can use the rear view mirror through the rear window. I have never been able to close the front blinds together with the magnet, so I use a bulldog clip to hold them together.
Hope you enjoy you 696G.

Thanks for the replies have now worked them out but now have another problem, how are the rear speakers turned off? I am sure it must be obvious but I am missing something.

Hi

If you have the JVC radio the speakers are controlled from the radio options. You need to press and hold the "SEL" button until the screen displays the menu. Now press the >>| button (to the left of the volume) and the volume to change. Your looking for FAD(er).

0=both speakers the same
