This is a BRAND NEW Advent/Gentex FRAMELESS auto dimming rear view mirror with Homelink® Version 5 & Homelink® Connect that will fit the 2011-2018 Ford Explorer vehicles (see the compatibility tab for vehicle fitment information) that are equipped with the factory 16 pin auto dim-only mirror & for these vehicles, it's a very simple PLUG & PLAY upgrade!! ***Not for vehicles with a forward-facing auto-high beam, lane departure, or other type of camera mounted on the mirror bracket or for vehicles that have "COMPASS" or "RVD/COMPASS" on the back of the mirror housing.***
This mirror is right around 10" wide, which is slightly smaller in size than a standard 10-1/2" mirror, as there is no black plastic frame surrounding the mirror frame.
Auto Dimming glass.
Homelink® Version 5 - works with all openers, current and prior (yes, it's backward-compatible with older openers!)
Long neck stem - will even work on newer vehicles that have a black plastic shroud surrounding the mirror stem - no spacer needed!
Homelink® buttons will only work with the ignition on.
Homelink® buttons are backlit in white, making them easy to locate in the dark, but not bright enough to be annoying.
Homelink® Connect - HomeLink Connect® is the industry’s most versatile, reliable, and comprehensive in-vehicle home automation system app. More info available here.
IMPORTANT: As part of the installation process, you will need to remove the indexing tabs on the side of your vehicle's existing 16 pin mirror connector. See the Installation Notes tab for more info.
