I am looking at installing a Homelink system in a 2011 JSW. I have seen write ups for installing the VW Homelink visor and for the Gentex mirror w/Homelink. Can anyone provide a 'signal strength' and 'range' comparison between the Gentex mirror w/Homelink and the VW Homelink visor?

I have another car with a factory installed Gentex mirror w/Homelink and I am unimpressed with the range of the Gentex Homelink transmitter. It is not uncommon to be within 15-feet of the garage door before the Gentex Homelink triggers a door opening and on occasion we have to stop the car and wait for the garage door to fully open. However, with the handheld transmitter that came with the garage door opener, we can consistently open the garage door from over 3-houses down the street and the garage door is fully opened before making it to the driveway.

If I am going to make the $400 investment in the VW Homelink visor, I want to make sure that I am getting a level of performance commensurate of the cost.
