I have had a regular car compass with suction cup attached to the windshield of my 1991 Seville. Here is where I attached it in my 1995 Fleetwood. Just take off the suction cup and push it into the gap between the dash board cover and the dash. Works for me. :)

How about one of the later rearview mirrors from the Roadmaster, etc, with the electronic compass?

Huf, they are dirt cheap. I can get you one with the wiring for next to nothing from the SS guys. I have one in my RMW. I am going to put one with the compass and temp in my Caprice wagon.

Jay, I am kinda happy with the current setting, but thank you for the offer! :)

Where do get the power source for the mirror?

I think I might get one of those mirrors. It would be an easy install since I already have power there (I have the auto dimming mirror, it doesn't really work though)

Yes, I have the auto dim in the 94, and I don't really like it.

I see no point of Fleetwood lack of compass considering cheaper cars came with that like RM .

Here's the compass in mine. It also has HomeLink, outside temperature, auto dimming, map lights, and night time ambient lighting that is the same amber color as the radio display! :) I always put these in my old cars since they make life so much easier.

My autodim seems to be always enabled regardless of the position of the related button.

I think mine is the same. Dim, and blurry.

Ok, I want one of these compass mirrors. This is one thing I always thought the car should have.

What's the deal jay?

You can buy brand new auto dim mirrors and they're not foggy or dark all the time. I get mine from Mito Corp and fit them in all my cars and it's a nice and practical upgrade. Google MITO to learn more.

How the heck do you hook that up? That is nice!

And i agree with the post about not being in the Fleetwood, but in the Roadmaster.... Why did the buick get the little touches the Fleetwood didn't??? Makes no sense to me!
