T'll tell you the 07 G35 X one i have is simple. Power wire, neutral wire, and a information wire.
It has compass ,Auto dimming, and 3 home link buttons. BTW it's auto dimming.

This mirror is huge i'am gonna try to use it.

Just three wires . Seems a better mirror than I30 but i'll take a look at it in a week or two.

Black neutral,brown power.

I swapped mine with a 09 Rougue backup camera mirror. Has the screen built in with auto dimmer. Ran the camera through the plastic license plate holder/trim in the trunk. It only took about an hour and a half.

I didn't pay that much for mine but same thing. It was worth it. I wanted a camera without a in dash screen.

i'll be getting a double din touch screen with reverse cam, i already have home link buttons in my visor. on a few occasions i have needed the compass since the compass between my ears has been dropped a few times. if i figure out how to make the i30 mirror work i'll post back here.

some pretty mice mods you guys have going here!

I did something very similar, but this one looks like the mirror in my 4runner

I picked up an I35 mirror . OK it is 7 pin but only 2 are used.Look in the pictures.
Black neutral,black red power. Auto dimming
This is from 2003 I35

I picked it up for you if you want it ,just tell me.
