I know there are memory seat settings with steering wheel, side mirror and power seat all in one. But any out there with memory rear view mirrors also?

I've been looking at a lot of luxury cars recently. I'm looking to replace my Infiniti G37x. I haven't seen one with this feature yet.

I guess it's too complicated to add that electronic feature to rear view mirror

There just has not been anyone in the history of humanity who is so eFFin lazy they cant teach their hand up and manually adjust the mirror right in front of their face. Congrats on almost being the first though.

For the 6 months it seems to take to get it "just right", I sure would love to set it once and have it included in the memory.

Same could be said for memory seats, steering wheel, and side mirrors. But memory rear view mirror, now we're going too far. I think it's a valid question but I know you're just trolling.

Not at all. Manually, Most proper seat adjustments can take anywhere from 5-20 seconds. Sideview mirrors, 15-60 seconds. So over a minute between the two easily. Valuable time can be saved with those, especially when the two most common drivers are different enough in size where the bigger driver cannot physically get into the car until AFTER the seat has been moved to give sufficient space for their larger body.
A proper inside rearview mirror adjustments takes anwhere from .5 of a second to 3 seconds on average. These numbers are common knowledge to engineers that work in vehicle ergonomics.

So there IS an actually benefit to the common memory seats and outside mirrors, but not so much so for the inside rearview. Unless the driver is just terribly lazy.
