    It is a compass/altimeter.

    It's missing the color-matched cap for the magnetic sensor. :hillbilly:

    I'd stay away. Have dealt with a Mongolian seller on eBay before. The result was not quite impressive.

    Not sure what that roll of blue wire is for, the thing simply plugs into the existing harness. You WILL need the short sun visors, which I suspect are hard to find in the US. I just bought (and sent home to Tedd at Cruisersolutions) the whole thing w/sunvisors at the local "Industrial Area" (read: huge pick 'n pull). Thought I wanted it for mine, but decided no. :cheers:Ned

    Compass direction and altitude are not really "live' info I need to reference daily, and you need to 'adjust' that altimeter manually. Variants of these were in several other Toyota 1980-era vehicles with an SR5 package. I had a similar one in a Tercel and wasn't impressed. Today most handheld GPS will do all that and more for the same price...
