The suspense is killing me !

If the difference between Nav and non-Nav is the entire head unit, then could someone with MyLink & no Nav add this feature by replacing the head unit and adding a GPS antenna, or is there more to it than that?

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

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!

This is a good idea!

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