Hi sydneycb, and welcome!

I'm really curious about this mirror you're getting. You said GPS and backup cam? Wow!

Do you know anything about the part? Is it Kia OEM, or an aftermarket unit?

I got a plain rearview, and I've just taken delivery of the Kia OEM autodim/HomeLink/compass unit. Haven't installed yet, so I'm wondering if I'd want to go with what you're getting instead.

I am going in to talk with them tomorrow or tuesday...its getting installed at the dealership but i'm not sure if its kia OEM, i wanted to get a aftermarket alpine dvd/gps unit installed but they tell me it wouldnt fit so he suggested i put in the mirror which has gps and a camera view for the rear mounted cam they are installing, he also told me i could get a dvd screen in the mirror as well but i found that a little over the top but hey i guess some people might want to watch movies in there mirror lol...i'll get back to you as soon as i get the specs on everything

Hey, thanks for that!

Looks VERY interesting. I think, though, that I'll stick with the mirror I've picked up for my Koup. If it came with HomeLink instead of Bluetooth I might consider it.

However, my wife and I also have an '07 Sedona that could use Bluetooth. And a backup cam, for that matter... Might have to look into this further!

Yeah it looks interesting, i've actually been thinkin about not getting it... do i really need a rear camera? not really lol the gps i would use.. I change my mind on options every few hours i swear.. I'm getting the r body kit and rear LED taillights for sure, but now i'm considering the R exhaust as well...errrrr :confused:
