Cool Add home link ?

Hello everyone,

I noticed the compass does not offer a home link setup. I was going to add a gentex Unit yet I am unsure if this is possible. I donít see any wiring for my auto dimming mirror so I assume it would be in the actual ball socket.

Can anyone assist?

Thanks

I was just discussing this with my wife (since I seem to have lost one of our remotes years ago and my 200 had Homelink)... Think I'm going the easy route and buying a programmable remote, but I'm interested in what you find out!

I havenít been able to see any wiring on the current auto dim mirror. Yet I am going to remove the plastic surround and see whatís behind. Will keep this updated.

So I did a little bit more of an investigation on the mirror. It seems that the connector is a 12 pin. But the biggest issue is the fact of that the mirror arm to the windshield is about 6 inches long. I am going to see if I can do a little bit of investigation to see if thereís a direct replacement that will fit this mirror and set up with home link and auto dimming see images below.

I think this is the spot for the retro fit ladies and gentlemen.

Are you taking out the map light and the switches for the lights? Also, isn't the mic in there?
