    I want to upgrade the standard mirror to an auto dimming mirror with compass. Is this possible?

    Probably. There may even already be a pigtail up in the headliner making it plug-n-play. Then you'd need to source the wire cover that would run from the headliner to the mirror.

    Gentex Auto-Dimming Rearview Mirror w/ Compass & Temperature

    Eliminate dangerous glare from the vehicles traveling behind you with an NVS® rearview mirror. It detects glare and automatically dims to preserve driver vision and make nighttime driving safer. The brighter the glare, the darker the mirror becomes. An ICE indicator will display for one minute when the temperature is at or below 37 degrees. This feature cautions you to anticipate road-icing conditions. Compass and external temperature readouts also ensure that while you are driving safer you are also driving smarter.

    Wiring harness and temperature sensor included

    Auto-Dimming Mirror

    Gentex Corporation is the world's leading manufacturer of automatic-dimming rearview mirrors. Gentex® mirrors are based on the science of electrochromics, which is the process of reversibly darkening materials by applying electricity. During nighttime driving, the mirrors use a combination of sophisticated sensors and electronic circuitry to detect glare from rearward approaching vehicles and darken accordingly to eliminate the glare and preserve driver vision. They are popular, active crash-avoidance safety feature making nightime driving safer for vehicles throughout the world.

    Compass

    The compass is a self-calibrating flux gate compass that eliminates manual calibration by the factory, dealer or customer. It detects and compensates for magnetic anomalies caused by bridges, subways and large steel structures. It also compensates for actual changes in vehicle magnetics. Calibration data is stored in memory, which eliminates any requirement for recalibration after losing battery power. The electronic compass shows the direction you are heading in an easy to read digital display located above the mirror. The compass is an extremely accurate computer that displays vehicle headings of N, NW, W, SW, S, SE, E and NE.

    Outside Temperature Display

    The outside temperature display provides you with a digital temperature reading. When the temperature is at or below 37 degrees the display will indicate "ICE" for a period of one minute. This feature cautions you to anticipate road-icing conditions.

    Please specify the year, make and model of the vehicle that you are installing this mirror in so that we can insure that all necessary parts are included.

    Harness: Wires are color-coded for easier installation.

    Includes harness and temperature probe. 3 year warranty
