    Honda Auto day/night mirror with compass?

    I was wondering if anyone has installed one of these mirrors in there EX? If so, how hard/difficult was the installation? I miss the one I had in my pickup and would like to add it to the Ody. Thanks

    Yes, I ordered one for our '07 EX-L and just installed it a couple weeks ago.

    Not a hard piece to install, but time consuming if you're ana, er.....'detail oriented' like me
    It took me about 3 hours in total, but 20 minutes of it was trying to figure out how to pop the lenses out of the overhead Homelink console without breaking them. The printed instructions were vague at best for this key step.
    The way to do it is to slide a thin screwdriver in from behind enough to gently pop it off the clips which are molded into the lens, then you can pop it off the front clips by hand.
    The second lens took all of 20 seconds after that
    From memory; after removing the overhead console assembly, glovebox, visors, both front 'A' pillar, kick panel and door jamb covers you snake the new wiring harness in and make the connections on each side's fuse box. There is a 22-pin connector and ground that goes to the driver's side fuse box, and a single pin that mates with the lone male counterpart on a passenger side multiplug.
    The mirror snaps into the existing bonded windshield mount and is secured with a set screw.
    It works great, and I really did miss the compass from our Chrysler T&C....which had a multi-function computer in that space as well.

    Best of luck,
    Brian
