Mine's all wired up now. Really easy install, too!

Now to just get the guts to cut into my bumper to mount the camera...

I installed the mod this evening. Pretty straightforward using the instructions here.

I'm not going to post a bunch of pics that have already been posted, but I'll post a couple of things I did slightly different that I haven't seen pics of here yet.

First, I took some painter's tape and taped up around the area I was working on for one, to give a nice place to draw the template marks, and two, protect the nearby paint from the super sharp box cutter I used to make the hole. New blade made it cut through like butter.

I then used some 3M automotive body molding mounting tape to mount the camera from inside the bumper. To mount it dead center (you don't have to, but I think it looks better and more symmetrical) and from inside using mounting tape, you need to trim down the passenger side of the camera mount quite a bit.

Works like a charm, however, it certainly makes stuff 5 feet away look like 50 feet. Nice fisheye view though. I'm lovin' it!!!!

Edit: The pic of the mirror display looks a bit grainy, maybe I got too close with my camera. The picture live looks clear and crisp.

For members that want the new 2012 mirror, we have one and it use's the stock connector, but its funny, it only uses 7 wires, we have 9 in the 2010-11 mirror and need to add 2 more for the video, Looks like GM has rewired the harness to the roof and may have multiplexed some of the OnStar buttons, Thanks to Bob Prim for his help, will try to make this work.

How about the 2012 Camara, any updates on this yet? I'm hoping to replace the old camera to get the gridlines.

The video on mine just started flickering a lot for some reason. It worked fine for months and now issues. Anyone had experience with what might cause that?

Detailed and very helpful technical, thank you. I have one question. Most back up cameras need a wire to the reverse lights so the unit powers up when backing. Did I miss this or is the camera up all the time? One pic shows the red and black camera wires coming through the trunk grommet but I don't see any connections to reverse. Could the power wire be spliced into the drivers back up lamp module?

Your 2SS/RS car is pre wired with a wire in the mirror harness that gets power in reverse, so in the new harness that comes in this kit we add a wire that meets the camera harness so there is power there to use, Its the green wire you see in one of the pics.

Ofer, did the install in about an hour. That tiny camera you got me (Crimestopper.com model# SV-6922.LM)...works and looks amazing!! The colors are rich and clear..and no need to get night vision..looks great even in the dark. With the ofer harness it was a breeze to install. I'll post some pics tmoro
