Product Research

Features

Overview: The Gentex ADVGEN20A is a rearview mirror designed to replace the factory rearview mirror and provide automatic dimming at night, outside temperature, and a compass. The ADVGEN20A uses the factory mounting base and is compatible with most vehicle's mirror mounts.

Auto-Dimming: The ADVGEN20A has a built-in forward-looking light sensor that will automatically dim the mirror when headlights are detected.

Compass: The Gentex replacement mirror features a small window in the upper right corner of the mirror for displaying the current compass heading as well as the outside temperature. Once the mirror is installed and powered on, a quick calibration sequence will get the compass properly oriented for use.

Temperature: The included temperature sensor gets mounted to the back of the front bumper to provide the mirror with the outside temperature. A 16.5' wire harness that's attached to the sensor gets run to the mirror and is terminated with two pinned wires that get inserted into the corresponding slots on the mirror's 7-pin power/ground harness.

This mirror has the features I want in my renovated 2002 Dodge Dakota pickup truck. It should be an exact fit, and I will have the Crutchfield store do the installation. [ Steve  Mar 08, 2020 ]

Q
I have a 1997 Chevy Silverado. It has a similar mirror less the temp feature. Will this mirror be able to plug into the existing harness and run the compass and temp?
[ Cooper  Jan 17, 2020 ]

A
It's been several years since I installed it but if memory serves, you should be able to plug and play this mirror into your trucks existing harness. Good luck.
[ Reginald  Jan 17, 2020 ]
A
If your existing mirror has no temperature then you would need to install the temperature probe in order for this to function. The probe has two long wires which need to run from the probe installed behind the grill thru the fire wall into the passenger compartment to the mirror
[ WILLIAM  Jan 17, 2020 ]
A
I wouldn't think so because the temp is based on sensor that is attached to the vehicle. I would call or contact. Vented and ask them. If the first mirror didn't have the temp function , I would not expect a sensor already on the truck.

Q
Do you need a adapter for installing this on an Audi A3?
[ Bond  Jun 04, 2019 ]

A
I've looked at a video showing the mounting of a rear view mirror into an Audi A3. Based on what I seen in it, I do not expect this mirror to mount into it using any of the adapters that are available. I wish I had different news for you there My Bio: https://www.crutchfield.com/bio/Paul

Q
I have a C-HR 2019 Toyota. I really only want a dimming rear-view mirror with a compass. And, I need to know if this mirror is compatible with its factory mounting base, or will it require removing it entirely to attach this mirror?
[ Norman  May 30, 2019 ]

Q
What camera is recommended with this thing?
[ Daryl  Oct 09, 2018 ]

the one I ordered just has the compass and temp. If you call them they will set you up with the one with a camera. There is also ones that can be mounted in the dash that is larger and so much better rather than the rear view one.
