Chances are it is for the auto dimming feature

I have been wondering that myself. I do not think it is for the auto dimming because if I take a flashlight and point it at the mirror side of the mirror, the mirror dims, how can the sensor on the other side sense that I shined a light on the mirror?

BTW, I do not think it is a dumb question.

I thought it was for the auto dim also, but that sensor is on the other side of the mirror facing the driver. I'm dumb founded.

I know that there is a sensor on the mirror side, it is to the right of the on off button. The left is the light to tell if it is on or off.

Im not able to look at mine right now, but possibly the microphone for the bluetooth and voice command? I know the mic is in the rearview mirror, just havent looked at it closeley yet.

I believe it could be for the universal garage door opener?
