V1 turns on/off as you'd expect, and it works great. I plan to look at adding in the remote display soon too, which should just be a matter of running the other two lines in the phone line to wherever I decide to mount it.

If you do do this, I highly recommend at least one ziptie keeping your phone cord in place inside the mirror, I had mine slip out the back of the plug once which was annoying.
I thought the power up there was only 9Volts!! must 12V , how easy is it to remove the mirror assy please, I do not want to brake anything?.
Live for now, life is too short.
