    my wife’s Elantra has a compass showing the current elevation.

    i know we have a (crappy) compass as well on the 4R. I couldn’t find anywhere how to display current elevation. Is that not an option anywhere?

    if not, anyone knows an app that can display the elevation on CarPlay? I know I can use my phone to see it but I’d rather access it through the 4R screen if possible

    They probably have more staff nowadays. Not sure what you mean by products working or not. It's that kind of unnamed skepticism that hurts local businesses. I disagree that each users experience varies. If products work then they work. Figuring out how to install is a different story. But whatever. I just don't hear anyone question other businesses on here with the same ferocity.

    Installed RAV 4 side mirrors. Very easy but useful mod. These should have been stock.

    They include blind spot mirrors built into them. They're legitimately awesome, and I wish I did the mod years sooner.

    Nice! Got mine installed just before the holidays and have been very happy with it. Will be curious to hear what you land on for your settings throughout your experimentation with them. Are you starting at 0/0 front and rear? I think mine came set around midrange but have backed off that completely for now and am impressed.

    I have a heart condition and need to watch the altitude here in the west. I installed an altimeter from Amazon made by Sun Instruments.

    I’ve had these mirrors installed for almost two years and they’re still working well. It takes a little time to get used to the driver convex view. Watch out when merging left, “objects in mirror are closer than they appear”! :eek:

    I've had the same ones on my 4R for a few months now. It took me a few driving sessions to get used to them. Now it just seems "second nature." Prob one of the few thing from there that was actually worth the money. And install is relatively easy. When I had my mirrors disassembled I also changed out the puddle lights to an LED. Killed 2 birds with one stone.

    I saw this and thought about it. Do you like it? Is it too big, too small, or does it seem adequate size? Where did you put yours, right above the clock? Any pic would be appreciated :)

    After a few days of driving I got used to them. I typically won't merge into a lane in front of anyone unless I can see them in my rear view mirror from the other lane.

    Installed the Meso dual color LED map and dome lights. Definitely make a huge difference.
