I thought all newer RXs had factory navigation. I don't think you have to worry about the rain sensor being affected. Just make sure you get a reputable installer. The Gentex mirrors...

Thanks man. I wish I had the patience, time, and tools to do my own wrenching, but props to you for DIY-ing it. If I can't do it myself, a good, honest mechanic is the next best thing.
