About to buy Gentex Auto Dim/ COmpass mirror have some questions

Hey im thinking about buying a Gentex Autodim/ compass mirror i was wondering if i bought a mirror from a ford or chevy which has the plugs in the back can i still be able to hook it up. I know there are others out there that have 3 wires (ground,12 volt, and reverse light) but those are too expensive.

check which one it is...

some have the sensor built into the car, and not the mirror... and they feed the data to the mirror...

other than that, i believe it's pretty universal.

My brother bought autodimming mirror with temperature sensors and compasson ebay, mirror was off Mazda (aka Ford).
mounting hardware was different then accord has, so he had to modify it to make fit and that was not easy. as far of wiring; none of connectors work for accord, so he solder them into accord wiring harness
