Auto Dimming Mirror

  • Gentex Auto-Dimming Rear View Mirrors eliminate the glare of headlights behind you for safer nighttime driving
  • Mirror automatically dims as it detects glare - the brighter the glare, the more the mirror dims

Eliminate the dangerous headlight glare that comes from driving at night with a Gentex Auto-Dimming Rear View Mirror. This mirror detects bright lights and automatically dims the reflection. The mirror image is clearer and more detailed, preserving your vision and comfort.

The Gentex Auto-Dimming Rear View Mirror uses a special electrochromatic gel sandwiched between two sheets of ultra-clear glass. When bright light hits the mirror's built-in sophisticated sensors they send an electric current to the gel, causing it to dim. The amount of dim is proportional to how bright the glare is, so you always have the proper setting.

Your Gentex Auto-Dimming Mirror is available with a compass display, compass with temperature display, or compass/temp with a map light, and comes with a wiring cover. Gentex designs their mirrors to match your vehicle's OEM stylings for a seamless look.

Choose a Gentex Auto-Dimming Rear View Mirror - because safety is no accident.

Note: Due to their wiring design, Gentex Mirrors are not designed for use on convertibles.

This was installed as a replacement mirror in my 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix. The most difficult part was getting the original clip-type mirror out, which an auto glass shop was able to do without difficulty. The mirror is very nicely made. Instructions at first seemed good, but really did not pertain to my mirror installation. More focus was on their compass and Homelink mirrors. The factory mirror is a three-wire pin, the Gentex seven, though not all pins are used. It is easy to remove the pins from the Gentex seven pin plug and install the three-pin wires from the car. The mirror works as advertised and the dimming is turned off when the car is placed into reverse, just like the original mirror. Unfortunately, when I called the tech line at Mito/Gentex prior to installation, the tech person did not know their mirror had this function, telling me the third wire from my car would not do anything with their mirror. Wiring for this mirror is red/+, black/- and third pin undimmed for reverse. Pontiac was white/+, black/- and green/reverse 'off' wire.

I installed this in a 2007 Frontier. Shipping was very quick (typical of Auto Accessories Garage). The instructions weren't great, but I found plenty of help online. Taking my factory mirror off was my biggest fear (after reading online posts from people who cracked their windshield removing it). Just don't force anything and you will be fine. I slid a small flat screwdriver in the factory hole and CAREFULLY wiggled the mirror off the mount. The Gentex mirror comes with all hardware required for a custom installation. That is, except for a wire cover to hide the wires going from the mirror to the headliner. I bought one on Amazon. The temp probe has clips on it to allow for mounting virtually anywhere, a plastic wire loom for routing in the engine compartment and plenty of wire. The installation took me about half a day. I am slow, methodical and wanted it to look like factory installed. It could be installed faster. I like that it has a button to turn the temp/compass display on and off (although I will probably leave it on all the time). I am very happy with the product.

Unfortunately, this mirror did not fit my 2001 Acura TL windshield mount which is why I bought it in the first place. Secondly, it did not come with a mount and I had to use the one that came with my $11 mirror. So for $100 bucks, I wasn't overly satisfied since it said it would fit my car. Also, I had to guess how to wire it up since there were no instructions on which wires went where. I guessed right and it works fine.

Great auto dimming mirror. Fairly easy install. Helps to review how to take of moldings and trim before beginning installation. A fuse tap makes for easy powering up. Hardest thing was finding a grounding screw under the dash. Works great! Thanks...

The Gentex Auto Dimming Mirror is a "Great Upgrade" for any vehicle. Auto Dimming is a safety benefit, avoiding the bright lights of other drivers. Installation is quick and simple for many "do it yourself" individuals. Dealeship Services have no problem offering low cost and fast installation if required too.

The product did not come packaged with a plastic cover for the wiring that runs from the mirror to the roof. Disappointing. Now I have to find that from somewhere else.

I was told by Gentex AND the retailer that the mirror would not fit my 2012 Toyota Prius without changing the mount that is glued to the windshield. Therefore I called several glass installation places to change the mount. None would take a chance for fear of breaking the windshield. Finally found one that would, but when I arrived they took the stock mirror off and looked at the Gentex mirror and said "I don't know what they were talking about, it will fit perfectly". Mounted the new mirror, tightened it up, total of about about three minutes, and didn't charge me a penny. So the mirror does fit a 2012 Prius. Had everything else installed by a dealer, took about an hour. The mirror is functioning very well and I am pleased with the quality and functionality.

Great product, accurate readings, easy installation, and good fit. Shipping took a little long but not terrible for holiday season.
