Add on: Reverse Tilting Side Mirrors

My EX Prem. does not have side mirrors that tilt down when reversing. Is there a way to buy an after market module to add this on?
This is a handy feature that I really liked with the SX Touring model

A fish eye stick on mirror will have similar functionality and reduce blind spots as a side benefit.

This is mostly for backing into parking stalls or parallell parking.

Car already has blind spot detection.

If you don't use the 2nd seat memory function, you can set the mirrors to tilt and save the setting. Just hit memory 2 to tilt the mirrors....

^ could you pls explain more? I wonder if I have this on my 17 EX Prem

Where do I find the 2nd seat memory function? and how can I set this up so when I shift to "R" it tilts down?

The Set Memory seat buttons are on the door.They are numbered "1" and "2". Typically, they respond to the fob, but if you are the only driver, you can set "1" to your preferred seat and mirror settings for driving, then adjust the mirrors to the preferred backup position and Set again to the "2" setting. When you want to back up, just press "2". Then press "1" to go back to the driving position...

The tilting side mirrors can be turned on or off. I've attached the instructions from the supplement that came with my '18 PHEV manual.

could someone with a 2017 EX Premium model confirm the above?

I do not have either "memory seat" and I tried L / R mirror and does not do anything.

L/R mirrors on equipped cars will only do it when you shift into reverse. Did you try that?
