    Thanks for the pics! I was hoping there was room under the cover to hide the toll-tag, but it looks pretty cramped in there. Picture SRX_Mirror 002.jpg was a big help!

    BTW, do this on a friday. If you are wrong about where you are wiring, and you won't know until you do it, you can very easily have a dead battery the next morning.

    Re: need to access 12v from rear view mirror

    Im about to hook up my v1 like this through my rearview and was wondering if I need to solder the points that go into the plug, or just jam them in there.

    Re: need to access 12v from rear view mirror

    I swapped the mirror in my Avalanche for a rear view mirror with a back up monitor in it. It was a lot easier than the SRX mirror though. One word of experience and that is get the largest monitor size you can. anything smaller than 3.5 inches is of no use. Especially when backing up in bright sunlight from the front area. It makes the picture too hard to see. Also, do NOT buy one if it doesn't have brightness and color controls on it. The one in the SRX doesn't and we all know how poor a picture it is and there is nothing we can do about it. There are many on the market so watch whom you buy from for warranty reasons.

    I just did mine using the mirror connector. Mine was pin two (red) for power, and pin 5 (black with white stripe) for ground. It works!! :-)
