I have a 2021 Limited. I'm used to clipping my 1980's technology Chamberlain three button remote onto my visor. But our visor is too thick! So where do you clip yours? I could obviously velcro and stick somewhere, but in the past, I've had issues with stick-on stuff coming undone on hot summer days, etc. Not looking for a fancy solution. Just. an easy and practical one ;) Thanks.
I didn't want my opener exposed or rattling around, so I ordered a coin compartment from Amazon that replaces the fuse cover in the lower dash left of the steering wheel. It fit my opener perfectly and is out of sight.

Ive got the HL mirror in the Crosstrek.
In the STi, I used velcro and placed it in the fuse tray on the lower part of the drivers side dash.
The HomeLink mirror is a great upgrade, if you don't already have it...

You, sir, are a genius. I have that same coin compartment and it didn't even occur to me to put my garage door opener in it. Well, it's in there now. I placed my glasses cleaning cloth underneath it to avoid any rattling from plastic laying on plastic. Thank you!

I placed mine between the map lights fastened with Velcro. It blends in pretty well with the interior IMO

I picked up the Homelink mirror. Good price, easy to do. Easy to pair with a Chamberlain door. Gets rid of the remote.

Do you have to remove the old one and reglue the new one in place or does the new mirror attach to the existing mount?

Same mount. IIRC, the mirror is an option added at the port of entry and they bolt on whichever one the dealer or customer ordered.

It's a lot to pay for the home link upgrade if you already have a compass mirror - which is what mine came with.

You can clip it to the sun visor . Look at it and you will see a pull out extension on the right driver side of the visor. Your remote clips on nicely to that.

no that's too thin for the clip. the full visor is too thick.

Did your limited come with Homelink? If so, you can ditch the remote and use Homelink instead.

No my Limited came with the compass dimming mirror that did not include homelink unfortunately. All good though.

Since you already have a dimming mirror, the necessary wiring for the homelink mirror might already be installed... if you were considering getting the mirror.
