Default Recs for a new rearview mirror?

So a few years ago I cracked my windshield and had it replaced. Ever since, my mirror has been really loose in the connector, and now I'm noticing it's starting to warp around the edges of the glass and get discolored. Has anyone swapped them out? I know Honda has that fancy one with the N/S/E/W display...
Curious if you found a better one at an auto parts store?

I bought stock at the dealer and installed. But... I did not have to replace the base that's glued to the glass.

I highly recommend the Honda dealer option auto-darkening mirror with compass.

BUT I don't know its price. I got my car used and it already had it.

I recommend one of these, it does a good job at 360* vision. I can see almost everything in front of and behind me at the same time. Granted it does make what's in your mirror look smaller, similar to the passenger side mirror on most cars. This just clips on the existing mirror. I had the same issue with the reflective coating on my oem mirror starting to peel back.
