You'd probably need whatever wiring harness 2SSRS is making, but yea - seems like it actually might be possible now.

(The suspense is killing me !), No shit,
can't wait to find out if is possible to add mylink head unit to an older model, this is taking way to long.

I have no doubt that it will happen. It's only a matter of when.

I am ordering all my sound system this week. I have already recieved several rolls of orange leather and black suede to wrap my interior. My inferno Orange paint cans are in the mail. This is all I am waiting on to be able to get started on my interior...

If this is possible then I will go with the MyLink if not I will need to find another indash Nav/video set up.

Nice, do you have a build thread? I'd like to follow your progress on this.

No not yet. Still waiting on all my parts to show up. When they do I'll post something up! I have opted to go with a pioneer head unit and either the scosche kit or a one off fiberglassed set up (not sure yet).

It's has been going on for 5+ months now, I hope to see progress someday. I'm leaning towards a kit and an aftermarket head unit now. I really like the stock looking unit better but don't know how long I can wait!

I'm certain this has been asked before, however, I have not been succesful in searching through these threads. My take from this thread is that most of the issues arise with getting the MyLink unit to work and not necessarily the faceplate and AC controls.

I was curious if the 2013 GM Double DIN faceplate was compatible with 2010's (Ability to use AC Controls, Seat Warming, etc) and just using a compatible aftermarket stereo (Pioneer or the like) instead of MyLink. My biggest gripe about the aftermarket faceplates is that they ruin the look of the dash. Again, I'm sorry that this has been asked many times before, I'm just having bad luck finding that specific answer.

Thanks guys and gals!

Ah thanks! I wonder how easy it is to remove? And if the screen itself is actually the size of most Double DIN displays?

Just an FYI have a resource at a dealer who let me plug a MyLink into my 12 ZL1 and it did not work at all. The screen flashed colors and went nuts. So even for the 12s it's not a plug/play.

Here is why, there are 6 new wires in the onstar box only, and how do you connect a mylink with out the right wires from the front face plate to the rear head unit? then the new Nav cables.

They took an entire unit from a 13, not just the screen. The HVAC controls worked fine, the rest not so much. Hey, for free it was worth a shot.

I get that, but how do you connect this in to older cars when you have no wires in the 2012 car to run the radio? did they cut a harness to get the wires?

I wasn't there when they did it, but they said that there were (I believe) 2 connectors missing. I figured 1 was for an antenna.

I thought (hoped) the radio would at least power up properly......oh well.


Can the screen be pulled out of the Mylink frame? Since the HVAC worked I'd be happy to pay for the frame and install an aftermarket unit, I just don't want to spend a non-refundable $600 to try it out.

All the components that make the 2010 -12 radio work are now in the back of the head unit so that is one connecter added to the head unit that you dont have, then the USB is a wire from the back of the head unit to the port in the console, thats one we dont have.

No you cant pull the screen its all in one.

Crap.

Almost no aftermarket support (hello Scosche????) and (currently) no way to retrofit, it's really crappy.

Hopefully someday.......
