Auto Dim Mirror W/ Compass & Map Lights...

Do any of the Cobalts come w/ a mirror like this? I had one in my last GM and wondered if anyone purchased one and installed on their car. If they make one for the Cobalt, can you just get one that would go in another GM vehicle and just install it?

And of course, if anyone has a part nbr and price, that would be helpful too.

Thanks!

And have it work or just have the onstar mirror? Its really easy to take the headliner off, then just follow wires.

I was too interested in replacing my rearview with at least one that auto dims. Anyone know of a good place to find replacement mirrors? I am assuming that having on-star complicates/limits the choices a little bit?

My car came with onstar...but that was only for a year...

I removed the onstar mirror and just replaced it with a regular one.

Is there power in the mirror plug if you don't have map lights. Or do map lights need to be tapped in to the dome light?

hmmm good point, after the one year is up no need for it really. Im curious just like bbrewbaker, is there power in the mirror cable or would separate wires have to be run...

Makes sense since it doesnt come with a map light, granted something I could by pass since I already dont have it...
