Gentex auto dimming mirror with homelink, maplight, temperature and compass

I have wanted to do this mod for a while. Finally I went to the junkyard and found a mirror out of a 2003 Chrysler Sebring of all cars. At first I got a mirror out of a 2004 Kia Optima with homelink only but this was so much better as it had the maplight, temp and compass as well. My 2012 EX sedan has the camlock style mount and the mirror had a wedge mount so I found an adapter on ebay for around $16. I cut a pigtail for all the wiring connections for the mirror and was going to do the same for the temperature sensor. Then I found a kit on ebay for about $55 with all the wiring that is labeled, the temp sensor and a wire cover as well as some other goodies. Installation took me about one and a half hour. Ran the temp sensor wires through the same grommet as my amp power wire and used add a fuses for the power wires and grounded to a screw under the dash. Mounted the temp sensor behind grille with zip ties until I think of a more permanent placement. Mirror looks great and isn't too bulky. The maplight can be used at night without blinding you with the glare which is a bonus. The map light does come on when the door is opened. My car does have tint and while this mirror is auto dimming it does not make it so I can't see anything. This is a very cool mod and very functional. I can take more pictures of my install if need be.

Hey Chris, i just asked a question about this yesterday. I would like to add the rearview mirror with homelink on it as well. How much did the junkyard sell it to you for? it goes for $275 online? Was it a headache trying to install?
