Sooo I'm stuck with the MyLink?

You could probably purchase one of the non-MyLink units from someone in this thread who is planning to do the upgrade. Best bet is probably someone with a 2014 LS, since those don't come with MyLink. I would think that would give the least headaches.

Will this setup have a backup camera input? If so, will it be included in the wiring harness? I have an early production 2010 and I feel like I jumped the gun. But this mod will help!

Looking forward to the group buy!

Yes, that is part of the A11 X4 connecter, but the camera does not come with it.

Wanting to do a stereo upgrade but wondering if my link best way to go for head unit and sound. How is it compared to let's say a $1500 kenwood head unit? If wanting to so custom radio system with better speakers all around, amps and bass with trunk built out is my link a good choice??

First this is in a car, so you will never get all the sound out of it, like a home stereo, now to why i did this, some of us remember there was a member that made a one only unit that used the AC controls,and added a touch screen to the radio, lots of member wanted it, i wanted it and so when this came out from gm, i know i had to do it.

As you know the back up kit we sale uses a RCA so we used it here, now for the 2012 cars there is a harness to plug in to the RCA.

Gen5DIY's backup camera retrofit kit would be the only thing you need.

Your kit is not using the GM OEM camera anymore?... or is it modified for the RCA.

I suspect the retrofit camera kit is going to have different parts/harnesses that are not needed for the MyLink, since it wouldn't be going to the mirror, not to mention not needing the mirror...

I want to hook it up to the My-link screen and not the mirror. The mirror would not be needed.

We only use OEM GM cameras, They all come with a water tight connecter in the back by the bumper, but from there my kit runs wires all the way to the front, and there it goes to RCA, on 2012 UP cars GM ran the wires to the passenger side kick panel and then up to the rear mirror, so for 2012 cars we are making a harness to split or move the video to a RCA to mate to the harness in your pic. (my harness)

Ahhh, gotcha. So maybe there will be a camera/harness only kit for us to order, since we won't need mirror.
