Is this the Homelink auto dimming mirror with garage door opener function? My guess is the antenna for the garage door opener.

Sounds like it's for the remote garage door opener. My 9-5 with autodim/remote/compass has the same thing. Which likes to fall off if I'm rough with the heat reflective shield I put in the windshield on summer days.

I think the mirrors came either basic (hand flip) or auto dimming&compass&garage door openers. Judging by the divot there in the back of the mirror, and the wires, I'd say you've got the fancier one. So, I think the keel is the antenna for either the compass, the garage door openers, or both.

Regardless, if you're proposing to just stick your camera on there, I don't think you'll have any problems and it shouldn't affect sensitivity of the garage door openers or the accuracy of the compass. You'll only head into trouble if you propose cutting the keep off.

What do you mean fraud? The compass part is in the piece on the back of the mirror and displays the information on the mirror.
He means his mirror has a compass but does not have that thing whatever it is. My 9-5 had a compass never had that either and it had both compass and homelink.
