Default what is the black box above my mirror

What is the black box above my rear view mirror, attached to the windshield, with wires comming out of it on my 01 gt? I have looked everywhere for the answer.

Thanks,

Ron B

do you have a sunroof? if not, i would suspect it must be the compass sensor.
