I have an '11 MDX with Tech package so the rear camera displays through the nav screen but I like to use the actual rearview mirror on the windshield as well. It seems to be fixated in a downward position at the back headrests and the manual says nothing of how to adjust it. Anyone know if it can be moved?

Grab it and give it a tug? Never heard of a power adjustable rear view mirror before.

I tried but haven't exerted extreme force yet lol. I'll call the dealer tomorrow because even after a Google search, I haven't seen this issue discussed anywhere.

Agreed. No way in hell is the mirror in a fixed position.

...and, bear in mind that most inside rear-view mirrors nowadays have two ball hinges--one at the attachment point to the windshield, and one between the bracket & the mirror itself. Thus, you can raise the height of the mirror by a couple of inches, in addition to being able to pivot the mirror up & down.

I have a distant memory of a Benz that would set the mirrors based on the key fob used to start the car, and all three mirrors were adjustable via controls on the door or console.

Maybe because there is no issue to discuss? I agree that you probably just aren't using enough force.
