Has anyone purchased and installed the homelink mirror?

If so, can you please posts some details?

I'm going to assume there is some kind of wiring harness located behind the headliner, and possibly a temperature sensor somewhere as well.

Thanks.

Homelink is not a monthly charge it is just a rearview mirror with the electronics incorporated for a garage door opener.

mine came with homelink. I like in an apartment and have no use for it whatsoever. I know there's kits you can buy that will go into your outlet and will turn on anything thats plugged in (lights tv etc)

Awesome! Thank you very much! I am trying to get the dealer to install the mirror before I pick the vehicle up tomorrow. If not I will do it myself.

Thanks again!

homelink is a good feature I became custom to using for many years. one feature i forgot to get when purchasing my Soul and one feature I wish i had. I do have small garage door opener clip to the visor but it still looks out of place.

homelink

I just purchased a used, generic, 3 button homelink off of ebay for $20...gave it to a car audio installer and he installed it in the headliner for $20, including the wires. Works great and saved hundreds...I didn't need the compass, but it would have been nice to have.

I would really like the mirror with digital compass but I can't justify the almost $200 it costs. Can anyone find anything that would fit the Soul's mounting bracket? I've searched Ebay but can't find anything :(

i installed one of those cheapo "floating ball" compasses with the little suction cup mount - it cost less than three dollars - if i keep it close enough to the A pillar, i'm forever driving eastward - no matter which way the car is pointing -

I have found several just normal compass mirrors (without homelink) in local junkyards but I want one that is amber or red to better match the rest of the interior lighting.
