Temp/Compass Unit

My F250 XLT didn't come w/ the overhead console w/ the temp/compass in it. Is there someway that I can get that installed or get something else so that I'll have that function available to me.
Thanks Very Much.

From the dealer. I'm sure for a price you could get any stoke item added.

This is sweet!

Night Time Driving Just Got Safer

Automatic dimming Mirror


Eliminate dangerous glare from rear-approaching headlights with this sophisticated night driving safety accessory from Gentex Corporation. Special sensors and electronic circuitry detect glare and automatically dim the mirror accordingly. An accurate self-calibrating compass keeps you on track; exterior temperature display warns you with an ICE indicator when outside temperature is at or below 37 degrees.






Automatic dimming Mirror
with Outside Temp and Compass



I just found these in our server, I like that!

They have a link on there website for instructions, but you have to login? I dont get it. Anyway, I would imagine you will need to run power to it, and get a leed outside for temp? It mounts on the windshield just like a regular mirror.

Mirror

I Installed One There Great Works Flawless, If You Decide To Go For It I Would Recommend That You Buy Only A Gentex Brand Mirror They Are The Same Mirrors That Are Used By Most Of The Manufacturers. The Install Is Pretty Easy They Give Good Instructions The Temp Probe And Power Lead All Come With It. I Think That There Is A Plug Up Under The Headliner That May Be Able To Be Used To Get Power From, I'm Thinking That They Use One Wiring Harness And Just Squirrel Away What Isn't Needed

I decided to get the mirror the dealer offers, my sales rep said he'd get a lower price for me. I am going to get it installed the same date the srvc dept sets up my block heater.

Did you ever get it installed? How do you like it & does it work good? I would like to have this option also - what would I be looking to pay (if you don't mind me asking)?
