2010 Escape Hybrid has Sync with Sirius, but not the in-dash nav screen option.

My employer's outfitter has added an aftermarket rearview mirror (toshiba DS-Z8) with aftermarket rearview camera. They removed the stock mirror and abandoned the connector which used to be connected to the stock mirror.

The Sync microphone & in dash compass are not functioning. The dealer says I must replace the aftermarket mirror with a factory mirror because the wiring harness must be connected to the mirror before the other accessories will function.

Is this accurate? Or could I just jumper some pins in the mirror's connector to regain power &/or communications to the other accessories? I really don't want to disable the aftermarket mirror/camera since its a fleet vehicle. Other thoughts?

Thanks to All!

As far as I know, the dealership is right. I'm pretty sure the compass mechanism/device is in the rear view mirror. I say turn the 2010 back in for a 2011 with the camera in the back and the screen integrated into the rear view mirror!
