fancy rear view mirror

I got a rear view from a 2004 Rubicon that has map lights and compass. I have the wire that goes into the mirror but nothing else. Does anyone know what wire is what or can provide any insight on how I can get this thing working?

Anyone have a clue even how I would begin figuring this out.

show some pics,

If the wire is a simple positive and ground you can run it down along the windshield rubber into the dash and connect it to the cigarette lighter or something of that nature. You can test out how it works before running it by taking an old cigarette power source and just wiring it up and plugging it in.

Sometimes mirrors that display information such as direction and temp connect into a small in dash unit.

You also need to add the temp sensor in the grille. Go to jeepforum.com use google or go over there. I know ther are several threads on how to add the mirrior.
