My Link or Aftermarket????

Pretty simple just want a little info on what yall have done. I have looked into both and did my on here for answers but am still interested in what everyone has done. It seems there are quite a few good kits out there for the aftermarket stuff that is a ton cheaper than the my link option. So hit me!

I just bought the Alpine ILX-007, and the pac kit. about 850 for both. There is no way the Mylink can match alpine quality. Plan on running two cameras, one in the front and the factory one in the rear.

myLink/Scosche/Metra became extinct in September with the release of the PAC and vendors offering flagship radios for less than any other option.

Been an audio guy for 25+ years. Very difficult to beat aftermarket audio gear. OEM has came a long way over the past 5 years, but aftermarket still is better. Automakers are making it more difficult to replace OEM head units than in years past as well.

I own a 2011 Camaro SS with an extensive audio system. I spent a great deal of money on the audio system. Complete sound dampening of the entire vehicle, replaced all OEM speakers and added two 10" subs, added three Alpine amps, and a JBL MS-8 processor. I didn't replace factory head unit because none of the kits at the time looked good enough, but now that PAC has a new unit I will be upgrading within the month.

I have done a great deal of research on Alpine, Pioneer, and Kenwood units. Quality wise Alpine is the leader. Great features and unmatched sound quality, but it comes with a higher price and their nav just isn't very good. Pioneer also has good features and their nav is slightly better than Alpine's, but their units tend to be buggy at times. Kenwood's units are comparable to Pioneer in sound quality and features. They do offer idatalink Maestro RR on their top of the line units which is pretty cool. On the nav side they are a great deal better than both Pioneer and Alpine. They use Garmin for their maps. All three have Car Play which allows use of Maps so nav could be equal if that is the deciding factor.

Long story short aftermarket allows so much more than Mylink.
