I had no time to install the unit yet, when I do I make some picture to show you, for now I have it few pictures of the unit itself. In my opinion the quality of the unit is very good, you can’t tell the difference in the material between the GM unit and this one. The unit have 8 inches screen, so is bigger than other aftermarket radios. I all most forgot to tell you, the unit is ready for Torque app out of the box, and they even send the Bluetooth dongle and the OBD2 Bluetooth sending unit. This is all for now.

The CAN is different, as is the Onstar module.

What company? Appears that we have a couple of different conversation going on here. If you are talking about the unit from China, I'm interested.

No - you can't install the CANbus from a 2012 into your 2010. The CANbus is programmed to your VIN.

To all of those who are not talking about the head unit of this thread, please start your own and stop clogging up this one. It is frustrating trying to weed through your personal conversations. This thread is not about a Scosche kit or a Metra kit or some harness someone is making for my link.

I have installed the unit. works great. had some issues in the beginning but i figured it all out. finished the install last night and as the radio is advertised it works just like it was shown in other videos online. I have a few pictures of the unit installed and I have a picture of the old setup with the metra faceplate install. the buttons feel more oem than the metra buttons feeling sticky or stuck sometimes. I really like how the unit is designed and works. audio has instant startup from last player being used ie, radio or music player while the radio is still booting you have music playing. I have the backup camera installed aswell and the quality of the backup camera is good. sound quality is like oem radio quality. I am still using the factory boston acoustic am and all the speakers too. I will have a video later on as I get used to the radio and figure out all the settings and apps. the brightness of the screen is pretty bright but can be adjusted in the settings to be darker. for now I am satisfied with the radio but as I said need to go through all the settings and apps and setup the radio to my liking before I make a video. I had to install one app from the app store that starts up automatically at startup because some apps force the screen to rotate as they do on android phones. that was the only things I had to do so far. the one installed from factory has to be opened manually each time the radio starts up. also one downfall when sitting in the driver seat the oil pressure gauge is partially blocked by the left dial knob on the radio because the unit is bigger than factory. also the steering wheel buttons function like factory.

Looks great.......... However, is it just the picture or do I see a pretty significant gap in the fitment? I'm hoping it is just the camera angle. I'm really wanting to like this unit.

Peace,

Mj

Your talking about the left side (drivers side) right? That's what I noticed as well. Looking forward to the video of this.
