'11 Escape rearview mirror with backup lcd

Did a quick search and didn't find anything conclusive.

While replacing the entire Sync system with a high end navigation screen and built in backup camera option sounds nice (and ensuring all steering wheel controls work), I'm not in a position to fund that right now. So, I'm thinking of replacing the stock auto dimming mirror with an aftermarket mirror that has a backup camera capability.

I found this which looks good. Just need to get a nice 120deg camera with guide lines.

I know I'll have to cut up the stock wiring harness but before I jump in and do that, are there any actual Ford mirrors that have auto dimming and backup camera that use the same wiring harness that we have in the Escape?? Like the F150 or other trucks and suvs. I know Ford like to use same parts on different models.

Nevermind... My sync mic is in the mirror. It'll take some work and about $400 to make it all work. I'll save that for a future upgrade.

Don't be so sure you can't swing it. I can very definitely recommend these with confidence. They work really well:

Keep your mirror. Use the radio for the backup camera which gives a much larger and better view. I paid for my auto dim mirror that I added. .
