Nice post, was wondering why that wasn't an option when buying.

I'm guessing it will be next year with the ZL1 having it.

Got the harness from "2SSRS", so pm him to get one, or you can wire it yourself. I was going to wire it myself but his harness was too good of a price to pass up!
My mirror is out of a 2010 GMC Acadia, but it is the same mirror for every GM with this feature. Part number 25794381
The camera is a VTL420C BOYO camera. There are dozens of cameras out there that do the same thing, basically just pick the one that looks best to you.

Completelyover looked your question, sorry. I have no clue. They were right there when i pulled the panel off but I didn't even think to look.

Your mirror seems to "fit" better than what I got - the part number translates to a Gentex GNTX-657, wheras the kit I bought uses a Magna Donnelly. Would you say you can "adjust" your mirror well? Mine ended up behind yet up against the light panel and in the end the mirror just can't be adjusted. Looking for a better solution, so please let me know if you are have a lot of clearance. Thanks!

It does hit the panel and the very top of the mirror shows a reflection of the back of the panel ( only the top 3/8" or so), but I can still adjust it perfectly where I need it.

Interesting - it sounds like it may end up in the same place. Are you real tall by chance? I can't get the mirror to go "left" enough to center the rear window from where I am sitting at 5' 8". Trying to point it down at all is near impossible.

I'm about 5' 10". I just sat in my car and checked it out again. If I was shorter or a little taller I can still put it right where I want it. If I was a lot taller then I would not be able to move it left enough to put it where I want it.

I scrunched down in my seat and I could actually adjust it better. I do have my seat adjusted as low as it will go and my back sucks so I don't slouch at all in my seat, if that helps.

When I look at one of the first photos you posted there appears to be a lot of clearance between the mirror and the panel, a lot more than I have at the moment. I found the guy on ebay who sells the mirrors, he's going to let me try the Gentex and apparently the wiring is exactly the same. There may be just enough difference in the mount to make all the difference in the world - we'll see.

Can the mirror and camera on the 2012 Camaro be installed on a 2011. If so, does anyone know the cost?

Yes. It's the same mirror I used and you can use any camera. You can find both on Ebay for cheap.

No, its not the same mirror and the wiring has changed.

New mirror is a Gentex 893 mirror it comes with the mate to the car factory connector, but it only has 9 wires and on the 2010-2011 we have 9 wires with out the video, so that means 2 wires are no longer there for ? see its not the same, more to come ones i get my hands on a 2012.

My bad, I didn't know they changed the wiring. Good thing you chimed in.

Really Nice job on the detailed pic and description. I'm wrestling with the same project to wire in a Valentine 1 in the wife's car. Getting to the visor area seems tricky, as it is she bugs about everything, she treats it like its NOT a sports car. Arrrggg!

Great updates too, thanks again!

I just hard wired my phone's navigation dock to my rearview mirror area a couple months ago.

Thanks for the link, looks nice and clean. I'll keep it in mind. If you are familiar with a V1, I'm going to to do a fused hard link under the dash and run the power up the support column. Reason is V1 makes a discrete display you can mount in the dash area for cabin only viewing. This keeps tailgaters from trailing behind using YOUR detector. I have one in my car and love the stealth part of it, works great, but you have to run one to the display and another to the unit from the link - no biggie but can't use just the wire off the mirror area. I had 2 Escort models for years and when I switched, have never looked back, there is a HUGE difference in the 2. V1 really knows what they are doing!
Thanks again, great pics.
