You can get the auto dimming rear view mirror with compass and temp for around $400. The problem is if you have SYNC, it won't work.

No, I don't have Sync either just a plain jane.

I know I can buy the mirror, but is there anyway to get it to show up on the radio display?

I asked the same question a couple months back and looking into it, that display is the same heads-up display used on the 2008 escape and mercury mariner with electronic climate control...those features are NOT included on the 08 focus

Thanks for that information Mike.

So... on the new Focus is the temp/compass located on the mirror then? Or is it found somewhere else?

To my knowledge, no. There is a display in the mirror for the compass and temp.
