Make Nightime Driving Safer
Eliminate dangerous glare from the vehicles traveling behind you with an Auto-Dimming 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° F. 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.

Gentex Auto-Dimming Mirror
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 nighttime driving safer for vehicles throughout the world.

PathPoint™ Compass System - (only present in higher models)
The mirror's compass and outside temperature displays are features of the PathPoint™ Compass System developed by Johnson Controls, a Johnson Controls Company. 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.

External-Temperature Display - (only present in higher models)
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.

Orca® LED Map Lights - (only present in higher models)
Gentex's proprietary Orca LED technology provides white, high-intensity map lamps, and uniquely colored console lighting from the same LED module! Since the lighting module is below the driver's line-of-sight, it won't cause glare or hamper driver vision. The Auto-Dimming mirror's light sensors can automatically activate the ambiance lighting during nighttime driving, or it can be manually activated.

Home Safety Mirrors Gentex :  
NOTE: Please remember to include your vehicle's year, make & model in the Comments field during checkout so that we can include the proper hardware like a new mount or one of the camlocks. If your existing OE mirror mount attaches to your windshield, you will need to remove it w/ a heat gun carefully so as not to crack your windshield. If your existing OE mirror mount attaches to the ceiling, you will need to remove it and a hole may be left behind. Also make sure your vehicle does not have any additional features tied in with the mirror, eg: rain sensor, automatic hi-lo headlamp dimmers, etc…
WARNING: If you acquired an OE auto-dimming mirror from eBay or the junkyard and wish to retrofit it onto your same model vehicle, we have no brackets/mounts for you. Neither do your local dealerships, you're out of luck. NEVER buy used/junkyard OE auto-dimming mirrors, they are obsolete & cannot be mounted nor powered properly.

 (#50-GENK5A)  Auto-Dimming Mirror + Compass - w/ GENTEX harness $0149

MITO or GENTEX harness?: As you can see above, there are a few kits with exact same features but different harnesses (ie: MITO or GENTEX). The MITO harnesses are better as they don’t necessarily need an extra wire cover. The GENTEX harness is a cheaper harness that looks better with the wire cover over it. It doesn’t quite look as pretty by itself. MITO harness comes with an inline fuse & 2-piece temp wire to ease the install. Both work just as well as the other.
