1. A rearview system for a vehicle, the rearview system comprising:

  • an electro-optic element including;

    a partially reflective, partially transmissive front substrate having a rounded peripheral edge, the front substrate defining a first surface and a second surface;

    a rear substrate defining a third surface and a fourth surface; and

    an electro-optic medium disposed between the front substrate and the rear substrate;

    a control circuit configured to control and power the electro-optic element;

    a mounting member operably coupled to said vehicle and to the electro-optic element, the mounting member routing wiring from said vehicle to the electro-optic element;

    an imager configured to capture image data outside said vehicle, wherein a signal representative of received light is communicated from the imager to the control circuit, wherein the captured image data is evaluated by the control circuit to determine likely glare on the electro-optic element; and

    a bi-modal switch operably coupled with the electro-optic element and configured to rotate the electro-optic element between on-axis and off-axis positions and also activate or deactivate a display module.
