Default Outdoorsman Odometer and RearView Mirror

Hi, new to the site here. I just purchased a CPO 2012 1500 Crew Cab Outdoorsman with all the bells and whistles. I am curious about 2 things: Everytime I start the car, the rear view mirror has a green light on it. I turn it off. I have heard that it is to help at night with drivers behind me. I have yet to drive at night but is it supposed to move when it is on and off during the day? Secondly, I owned a 2013 SLT before I traded in for this one since it had all the accessories I wanted and in the SLT, I was able to have the speed displayed in the EVIC. With this Outdoorsman, they told me it was not possible to display the speedometer electronically. Is this correct? When I go through the screen display, it does not mention anything about the speedometer. Thanks. Mark

Hi Mark welcome,
No speed on the EVIC in the 2012...well at least our outdoorsman anyway. Not sure if thats dealer programmable, maybe someone with a little more experience can chime in on that one. But as far as your truck is now its not an option we have normally.

Second is the RVM Im guessing, and that is the auto tint...if you havent noticed you have the same feature in your sideviews mirrors which is a favorite of mine. The green light will always be on during the day and night as long as the function is enabled.

If anyone has anymore to add please do, just giving you my best of my knowledge as a owner, rather than expert. Enjoy the truck!

No problem. Enjoy the new truck! I had to make the same decision buying this one. 2013 quad slt or the 2012 crew cab outdoorsman for the same price. I think my choice was a no brainer with all the extras. If you need anything else just ask somewhere here. Im no expert but everyone here does a great job of answering pretty much any question an owner could have
