Recommend a garage opener compatible with my BMW.

I have a 2007 BMW 328i with a trio of garage door opener controls on the reaview mirror. They would be a lot more useful if they were compatible with my garage doors and gate! Apparently I have exactly the type of units that the car's sender/transceiver systems cannot connect to.

Can anybody recommend a 3rd party or aftermarker receiver unit i can hook into the contact closures of my garage door openers to make it talk to my car so i don't have to keep the openers in my car?

Thanks

You should be able to program the in-car transmitter to operate your existing opener. Try the steps here.

If you do end up getting a new opener, look for one with HomeLink support.
