Anyone have a manual day/night dimming compass mirror with the map lights available for sale?
I would like to replace the auto-dimming mirror in my 96 Roadmaster with one.

Thanks!!

There use to be a lot of them on ebay. They were made for GM by Donnelly and had compass, map lights and were manual dimming. I have them in both my cars. The manual dimming is great with my dark tint on the rear window. I'm sure if you keep watching the GM sections of ebay for a compass mirror you will find one $20-$30 was the average cost and the wiring was very easy. You can see what it looks like installed on my web site.

Thanks for the replies. Since seeing the factory-option manual dim compass mirror in my Dad's 92 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser, I have wanted to switch to this from the auto-dim (no compass) which came from the factory on my 96 Roadmaster.

I have noticed quite a few Donnelly mirrors on eBay, but I wasn't sure if the window mount and harness would be the same for a GM B Body, so I never did bid on one. I was hoping the mirror like in my Dad's car would be a direct fit, and wiring be the same minus the need for the reverse light signal to undarken the mirror glass.

THese are available aftermartket. Check out "Escort.com". the radar detector people. They came out w/a mirror that has a compass & gps unit built in.
Isn't it amazing now? There's even mirrors with bluetooth speaker phones which scroll the caller ID display across the mirror glass so you can decide to answer or not. Mostly what I need is a mirror that stays dark at night, still has the maps lights, and the compass is kind of cool.


Thanks to 84 Grand National and Mista M for offering one for sale. If you can accept PayPal and are willing to send it USPS to Canada, send me a PM.
