Alright so here is the dilemma....I want to install a backup camera in my 05 Equinox...and would like to put it in the mirror. But I don't want to lose my compass and outside temp....are there any Chevy mirrors that I could use? Maybe from a newer Equinox?
Thanks!

I would go for a Magellan GPS and backup camera kit. That way you can keep the other stuffs the way they are.

Probably your best bet is to get a aftermarket, double din radio that is backup camera ready.

I understand having this feature in the mirror like this would be nice since yours does not currently. I will say though, after having it in the mirror like this I would much rather have the newer radio's with the my link systems and the radio also being where the back up camera is displayed. But that is just me.

So did you find one? If not, did you find a solution that you liked?
