I hope kenwood comes through with a dash kit and idata link. I do not like the current Scosche or Metra dash kits. They just seen so cheap and read they have issues. I currently have the Kenwood Excelon that they are showing in the video. I had it installed in my 07 F150 Harley edition, I just traded that truck for a 2013 2500 HD Duramax and pulled my Kenwood out to later install in my Camaro.

I was hoping the 2013 Stereo dash cover would fit a 2011 but don't think it does. I actually like the factory climate control just wish the stereo itself was removable and I could put my Kenwood excelon DNX690HD in the car.

I gave up waiting. The Metra and Scosche (in my opinion of course) look cheap as hell and do not at all fit in with the unique look of the Camaro interior.

This Kenwood kit looked pretty nice, but there's no way I can wait until the now rumored Q3/Q4 on a hope and a prayer.

A swap to the '13 dash would've been nice too, but the progress is slow moving, and there's only one guy working on it.

You should of tied that part of the package with ur installer. If he wants your business he could of cut u a deal. When I had my installed I had kenwood 9980 installed until the 9990 came out.. Free of charge for 6 months

I contacted Kenwood directly, they had no date for release and they have not even committed to making a system for GM cars. I will see if I still have the email from them and post it.

Here is a copy of the letter I received from Kenwood. I was really sorry to hear that they have no priority to get their system to work in our Camaro's.



Dear Russ

Thank you for contacting Kenwood USA Corporation. We value you as a Kenwood customer and appreciate the opportunity to be of assistance.

I understand you are inquiring about the iDatalink for Chevrolet vehicles. For this year, our units support only the iDatalink for Ford SYNC. Unfortunately we do not have one for Chevrolet and we do not have the information if and/or when it will be available.

Please feel free to contact us again with any additional questions.

:( double :( what the deuce!
I'm not thrilled with my DNX9990HD.

Screen washes out in heavy sunlight. (which happens frequently in the 'vert)

Interface was poorly designed.

It does not pick up my android SD card when USB attached to phone (only seems to like a single "Drive")

It does not work with my older ipods for music control, only seems to start working from early ipod touch and beyond. (my PAC apple interface works with all of them old -> Iphone 4s. I never tried a 5 though)... how hard can this be?

Attaching bluetooth to a previously paired connection is not simple and is under several "phone" menus and not the "bluetooth" at the top menu.

Once you get to playing music, it sounds good.

I really hope I don't get tail-up by them only "finally" producing a GM interface unit for brand new models.

The metra kit.... :/ they need a far more advanced product description. It doesn't "naturally" work with pre-amp outputs of a stereo, only line levels. I had to go Frankenstein. You also now have to purchase two other metra modules to get things working. One of which, the ipod LCD controller that gives access to "extended vehicle functions", is yet to be working on mine.

Otherwise the metra works now. I wish I could change the nasty blue button colors on the A/C controls.

I have the wash out, you expect it on a vert, but it seems to be more than I have ever had before...possibly the screen they use?

Do you have issues with the sound on turn up? every so often when you turn it on the music doesn't play? All you have to do is change the channel and it starts playing, and its not every time, 1 out of every 5 times I turn it on maybe, but it is slightly annoying. The unit comes up and the screen is working just no sound until i change channels.

I heard that the Scosche kits are sold out every where. So does that leave the Metra kit the only available kit?

you can catch them for sale used on the various camaro forums, thats where I got mine....


Scosche needs to take a book out of the logistics part of the house from metra, and metra needs to take book out of the design part of the house from scosche

I have the Scosche and its worked flawlessly. I did wait till all the "bugs" we're worked out. The controls from the steering work for my Pioneer AV unit. I just painted mine flat black to match other parts of the interior I painted.
