Xtra View is an extra-wide mirror that will clip onto any existing rearview mirror in a vehicle, without the use of tools. It'll give you a much wider view of the road behind you, enabling you to see all the way from window to window and view three lanes of traffic on a big highway. If you've got kids in the backseat, you'll also be able to see what they're up to through this mirror. The view you'll get will be distortion-free with reduced glare, and when you use Xtra View, you'll be driving like a professional, as similar mirrors are used by police officers and race car drivers.
By using Xtra View, you'll make any vehicle trip that you choose to go on safer and more pleasant for you. The mirror eliminates almost all blind spots, so you'll be able to drive with confidence without constantly turning around to check the area behind you. Regardless of whether you're merging onto a highway, switching lanes, or reversing into or out of a parking spot, you'll be able to see more of the obstacles in your way without turning your head. Plus, when you're driving at night, Xtra View will slice the amount of glare you experience due to things like high beams and LED headlights by as much as 50 percent.

How It Works
Besides being wider than standard rearview mirrors, the Xtra View mirror is made of anti-glare glass that curves outward and is coated with chrome. Due to its materials and design, it is able to provide you with a clear, low-glare panoramic view of the 180 degrees of space behind your car. This view is up to 300 percent wider than that which you'd be offered by a standard rearview mirror.
- Clips on
To use your Xtra View mirror, all you'll need to do is clip it onto your existing mirror, which will only take seconds and won't require the use of any tools. If you want to remove your Xtra View, you can simply unclip it just as quickly as you clipped it on.
- Reduces Glare
The anti-glare glass used to create the Xtra View mirror will reduce glare by up to 50 percent. Not only will it reduce glare from the sun during the day, it'll also reduce glare from headlights when you're driving at night, which will enable you to see more clearly in the dark.
- Lowers Amount of Blind Spots
As you use a standard rearview mirror, it's necessary that you frequently turn your head to check for obstacles within the blind spots behind or beside you. However, using Xtra View will eliminate many of these blind spots. Instead, you'll be able to readily view them with your eyes forward, so you won't need to move your head as often.
- May Increase Confidence
If you're someone who often worries about your safety while driving, especially when driving at night, the fact that Xtra View will enable you to quickly view more obstacles may make you feel more comfortable. Therefore, you'll be less likely to avoid night driving and / or extremely busy roads, something which may allow you to be more productive and have more fun.
- Good for Novice Drivers
When a teenager or young adult is learning to drive, it's sometimes more of a hindrance than a help if they frequently take their eyes off the road to look at their blind spots. They may do this too slowly, and end up running into an obstacle ahead of them. Fortunately, if you use Xtra View when instructing a new driver, they'll be able to keep their eyes on the road ahead most of the time, without missing the obstacles behind them, either.
- Can See Kids in Backseat
The Xtra View mirror's 180-degree panoramic view will give you a clear view of your car's backseat. Hence, if you've got one or more children sitting back there, you'll be able to see what they're doing without turning around.
- Suitable for Any Vehicle
Xtra View can be clipped onto the rearview mirror of any vehicle, so if you get used to using it and have more than one vehicle, you'll be able to quickly transfer it between them.
- Little Adjusting Required
With ordinary rearview mirrors, you may feel that you need to adjust them as you drive or sit in traffic, in order to see different things. However, Xtra View will let you see so much at once that you won't need to do this very often.
While using this mirror eliminates almost all blind spots, you may still have the odd one, depending on the style of vehicle you drive. Keeping this in mind, you shouldn't drive with your eyes straight forward for an entire trip—you should still look over your shoulder occasionally, and turn your head backward as you're reversing.
