A new version of Option 1 is currently being tested/tweaked.
This version provides a seamless transition through the open window when CAM1 switches off and CAM5 is switched on.
For the few that have downloaded option 1 and enjoy using it? keep an eye on this thread for the next update.

TrackIR Option 1 Window Block v4.4 & v3.5

What's new?
Re-worked the head movement code for 'moving out of the window' to remove a noticeable 'jump' when very close to objects (parked trailers / boxes etc).
New menu mods: v4.4 For all current SCS trucks & mod trucks when set correctly to 'unsupported' - added 'Pitch view down' slider (top right of menu), re-worked interior cam files and added an exterior cam file for all trucks to help provide a seamless transition through the window.
v3.5 Reduced features to work when you only drive mod trucks.
Controls.sii - Lines 67 & 252 added, 173, 177, 251, 254 & 256 amended.

IMPORTANT - For best results with v4.4 and SCS trucks only:
Use the menu mod that best matches your in game FOV. All SCS truck interior camera files in each mod now have the FOV set to that mod's specified FOV value instead of the random ones SCS uses.
You'll now need to reset your driving view for each new SCS truck you drive. It'll still be set as you left it the next time you drive each truck again, so no need to reset every time, just like how the standard game works.
In game F4 menu for seat position, click "reset to defaults".
Don't change the head pitch or FOV value. If the FOV isn't what you want then use the menu mod with the FOV you require.
You can move the seat up/down/left/right/forward/backwards as required.
If you really want a constant downward pitch then use the menu mod 'Pitch view down' slider 0 to 10 degrees. This slider value applies to CAM1 and CAM5 to keep the change point smooth. Note: changing SCS pitch in F4 menu will cause a slight vertical "jump" when looking out of the window as that pitch only works on CAM1.

Why do that for v4.4 only?
When your head moves out of the open window CAM1 is switched off and CAM5 is switched on. Doing the above will give a seamless transition through the window.
Note: If you use a multi-monitor setup file or config.cfg FOV changes then you should also use the menu mod with a matching value. I only use FOV 60, so if the extra options of 50, 55, 65 & 70 don't match your preferred FOV then you're out of luck. Use v3.5 for any FOV.
