Default Compass/Map Light Solution for Express

I didn't realize how much I relied on my compass until I got my Express that didn't have one. Those little compass balls just don't do it for me. I found a thread on another forum where a guy replaced his rear view mirror with a CIPA 36300 that is auto-dimming, has a compass and map lights. Unfortunately, you have to run the power wiring.

Has anyone heard of the CIPA 36300 or something similar? Walmart.com has them for $145.

Question

Lots of views but no responses.

Has anyone found a decent aftermarket solution for the lack of a compass on the Express?

Change your mirror to a Integrated compass mirror.

or change your radio head unit to one with GPS
