    UPDATE 11/16/2020 - THESE ARE STILL AVAILABLE!
    Hey all!

    We bought out Rostra's remaining stock of their 250-8709 FRAMELESS auto dim mirrors with "hidden" green compass display & Homelink® V5.

    We were are selling these for $179 including shipping (by comparison, we have the Gentex frameless mirrors for over $300!). But we've cut the price on these...they are now $119 including shipping!! For 2016-2021 trucks equipped with the factory auto dim or compass auto dim mirror, these are plug & play. For those trucks that have the factory manual dim mirror, we'll include a standard installation harness, no extra charge. 1 year warranty on these. On these mirrors, unlike the Gentex Homelink® mirrors, the Homelink® buttons will only operate when the ignition is on...there's no option to have them operable at all times. Also, if anyone would be interested, we also have the auto dim only version of the mirror available for $99 shipped - no Homelink on these, just frameless auto dim mirrors.

    These mirrors are slightly smaller than the stock mirrors Toyota used. They are right around 9.5" wide versus 10.5" for the stock mirror. They're also slightly shorter in height - 2.5" versus 3.25" See below for some pix showing the mirror & also the comparison of these to a regular Gentex Homelink mirror.

    So if you'd like one of these for your Tacoma, or for any other vehicle for that matter (these will work in just about any vehicle that has a standard wedge style of mount on the windshield), please either PM me or email me directly at info@bobsmirrors.com. When you do, please be sure to let me know whether or not your truck has the factory auto dim or compass auto dim mirror. We also have these available for the 2005-2015 trucks too![​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    The top picture is the one Rostra provided, but if you look at the pictures below that I took, it shows the mirror a bit better, and if you look close at the pix that show the side of the mirror, you'll see how the glass goes right up to the edge. These mirrors have a full glass face front and the glass goes completely edge-to-edge. The band you see around the edge is the portion of the mirror that does not dim (that's the portion where the two glass layers are bonded together).

    Thanks, I do see it now, especially on the top down picture. The first two are deceptive to the eye.

    20200407_120512.jpg I just want to say how pleased my wife and I are with this mirror. I got it for her truck for Christmas (yes, she said she wanted a mirror with a compass and dimming). Install was fairly easy. I didn't hook up the homelink, just the power for the compass. Instructions that came with the mirror were easy to follow. Even though the dimensions are slightly smaller than more expensive mirrors, it has no noticeable impact on rearview field of view. The bezeless frame looks really great as well.

    Unfortunately still nothing! Though I haven't taken any of these particular ones apart, I have taken the Gentex version of the mirrors apart to see if the compass LCD display module is the same as what they use on the regular "framed" mirrors (in hopes of swapping them out), but no luck there as well...Gentex uses a totally different style of display module that isn't interchangeable with the framed ones. I'm also still not seeing any OEM applications for these mirrors with anything other than green or red compass...but I'm keeping my eyes open!!
