EXPLORER AUTO DIM MIRROR

Hey guys I was just wondering. What was so special about the auto dim mirror from an explorer. Do they do anything else besides auto dim. Like have map lights or tell the temp, or maybe even tell what direction your going. I maybe interested in getting one if they do more than just auto dim. Thanks in advance.

Yeah it has map lights. Thats the point of the auto dim.

Some have the temperature and the direction. You can get one at a junkyard or you can buy a gentex one. (aftermarket)

Well I just want the auto dim mirror with the compass, and temp. That way I won't need to do an OHC.

The only reason I would put an OHC in my truck would be for the temp, and compass. If I can get it in an auto dimming mirror it would be alot easier.

I may have to put more thought into doing an OHC. I'm not sure if thats something I want to do. I still like the Auto dimming mirror with the compass and temp display.
