The font is big but there aren't actually any buttons there. It's just a touch panel with no actual buttons.

Cool but installing an aftermarket radio just got a little harder.

All 2013 LT, SS and ZL1 models will have this as standard equipment. This is not the nav unit.

Someone, maybe you, stated that with just MyLink and and smartphone, you could use the navigation from the smartphone on the MyLink. Would you be able to show us a demonstration on this? That would be awesome.

That is only on the Sonic and Spark equipped with MyLink. That version of the MyLink system does not have all of the features that this one does.

GearheadSS, thanks for the video, but I'm confused. The Sonic and Spark does not have all of the features as the Camaro? Does that mean that we can do navigation with a smartphone through MyLink?

You can but only on the Sonic and Spark. That's the only way to get Nav on that unit. It's in the form of a home page ap that allows your phone to be the data conduit for the nav.

The reason that it's not an added feature is because it uses your cell phone and its data plan for the nav. It's great but if you don't have service, you don't have nav. Also not great for those that don't have unlimited data plans.

It is very smooth. I was worried that it wouldn't be.

Does the backup camera look clear on the screen? Also, does is have the backup lines that also move when you turn the wheel? Just curious.

Thanks!
