Why is this a 5 star thread? Did the OP give up on this project or something? Seems like nothing ever came out of this thread other than someone saying they wanted to try something. What's that status Gladus?

Ofer's just busy and his DIY experiments take a back seat to running his website and shipping out parts.

Are you guys actually in communications with OP or do you always just speak for other posters?

Thanks for putting the hard work in man.

When you complete this, do you think you'll do a summary so the 2012s can be done? Any way to rewire so the backup camera would work with mylink?

Would almost need an installation manual put together because i am not NEAR able to do this myself. I would end up needing someone else to help me. Would you consider putting one together that would address 2010, 2011, and 2012s?

I tried to retrofit a My Link radio in my 2010 SS, but I realized it'd be too expensive for the correctly needed parts and labor.

so I found out it'd be much cheaper just to buy a ZL1 and call it a day! lol

Subscribed!!!! I want the mylink sooooo bad, but I also like my IBM. So trading it in is out of the question. Fingers crossed and hope this works and can be retrofitted!
