I'm considering making a wire adapter myself. Can you possibly tell me by looking at your adapter which wires from the headliner connector get connected with which pins in the connector to the mirror ? I may just use the connector from the 20' harness which came with the mirror and rig something up to connect them to the right wires from the headliner harness.
$60 for 6" of wire with two plugs is nuts.
Everything is stuffed back under the headliner and plastic wire cover is installed so I can't get to it easily. Perhaps someone who hasn't installed theirs yet can provide the wiring info.
For those who haven't bought one yet I would recommend trying to see one in operation before they pull the trigger. I am sort of disappointed with mine. I got the 3.5" screen and the "fish eye" cam lens really distorts the picture. Things look farther away than they really are. Also the cam can be a bit of a distraction when pulling out of a tight parking spot. I spend more time looking at the mirror instead of watching the vehicles on both sides. About all I use the cam for it for is to make sure my tailgate is up since I have a bed cover. It also keeps me from running over my garbage cans at home.
