A vehicle global positioning system includes a mirror assembly having a reflective element and a housing for the reflective element that is made from a material that is electrically substantially non-conducting. The system further includes a global positioning system (GPS) receiver and control module and at least one receiving antenna. The vehicle GPS is adapted to receive earth satellite signals with the receiving antenna and to convert the signals to location, velocity and/or time parameters. The GPS receiving antenna is positioned within the housing of the mirror assembly. In a preferred embodiment, the GPS receiving antenna is positioned within the housing of a vehicle exterior mirror. The vehicle GPS may include a plurality of GPS receiving antennas, such as one located in the vehicle's driver side exterior mirror and the other located in the vehicle's passenger side exterior mirror.
