Im sure electrochrome is the same as the internal rear view mirror on my model of car. The mirror doesnt dip when a car dazzles / is behind you, it turns darker to counteract the dazzle.

I imagine there is a lot more to it that just replacing the mirror glass for one that has the electrochrome coating. There will no doubt be additional wiring and sensors.
