Default A work around for no tilt down side view mirror cars.

It works for me. Proceed with caution until you're comfortable. Tilt your right side mirror down while testing this method to verify. Once you're comfortable with the technique tilt down mirrors will not be necessary. This is for cars with rear cameras.

Here we go: Back your car into a parking spot until the red and blue grids in the rear view monitor intersect exactly with the curb. Cut the steering wheel fully. Back in. This should place you about 3 inches from the curb. If you'd like to be closer -- repeat process. This will put you about an 1" to an 1.5" from the curb.

This is normal city spec curb height. Haven't tested unusually high or low curbs. I am not responsible for any curb rash. This technique works for me and should work for you.
