My wife's Terrian has guidelines, but it is displayed on the huge nav screen. I haven't seen mine work yet, but from what I can tell with the display being on the mirror it's just the image.

Great job. I will be doing this when my vert arrives. Also I am doing a complete custom stereo system. Can you tell me what size the rear side speakers are. Thanks

My camera has two little buttons to turn on/off the grid lines and to reverse the image (in case you mount it up front). I might look into mounting one up front and have a switch to activate it when parking forwards.

I cringe everytime I see a new car tore apart like that, but nice job on the install. I just can't see going with a bigger mirror than the monster already in these cars.

Why not make a monitor where the DIC is at? That would give everyone something to look at...

Nice job, on the coup you don't need to drop the head liner for the install, if you have a lot of noise in the image you need to shield the cable from the trunk all the way to the side cover.

I've got the same kind of problem with interference, but I don't think it's a problem with the video signal or the wiring to the back of the car. I think it's a problem with the power or the ground. I'm getting the power from the harness green wire and grounding to the little black bolt just in front/above the drivers side fuse box. If I unhook that and just power the camera from a 9v battery, the signal to the mirror is nice and clear.

Hmmmm interesting, I remember reading somewhere about the power going to the stock camera being 6 volts. Maybe the green write is only provoking 6 volts and that is why the quality is crappy. I'll plug mine into a different power source when I get home.

Yep, I just ran camera power from the cigarette lighter adapter and the picture quality was much better (still a teeny bit of interference visible but 90% better). I think I need to try to run a separate ground up into the mirror harness rather than grounding to the chassis.

Man I need one of these on my car! It is hard for me to tell how far to pull up when I'm parking this car! I'm use to pulling up until my tires hit the curb in my truck and that does not work in this Camaro

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.
