Zoomed camera view projected either onto the surfaces of the car's mirror or onto the fairly common navigation display.

       So now you'll not only be on the cell phone, you'll be watching close-circuit TV...?

       Shaky, to say the least!

       toejam, we're talking about not a camera view but a zoom function that would provide telescoping ability way into the distance

       So it's a camera view with a zoom function then. The RV model is exactly what I thought of when reading this. Add the zoom and you're all set.

       I like that. When we travel in an unfamiliar city, my wife often drives while I use binoculars to spot offramps and street signs farther ahead. Using the binoculars makes her sick so she has to drive. A roof-cam with image stabilization could help in that regard. Still, someone other than the driver should probably operate it.
