This was purchased for a client. Every thing works well & looks great, but the removal of the original mirror bracket to the windshield was a nightmare and an average person would either break the windshield or would not be able to install. An adaptor kit or proper info on this condition is a must!!!

The Gentex K5 replaced the lame OEM manual day/night mirror. The mount used the existing windshield based and fit properly. Like others mentioned, a switched positive and negative leads were found in the sunroof console bundle and the provided wiring was spliced-in. This made the installation less painful than stringing leads under the dash. The mirror did not require any compass calibration, the display was proper once powered up.

The mirror was relatively easy to install and works great. I wired the mirror to the overhead console in my Toyota Highlander rather than back to the driver's side footwell. I found these installation instructions online. Other than the adjustment pivot being a bit tight (I ended up greasing it), the mirror works great. I do recommend purchasing the optional wire cover.
