Smile Adding more cameras To your Mylink.

So we think we have a way to add more then one camera on the the touch screen Mylink radios, Will try to test over the week end if it works we can have 3 cameras in the car, "only one at a time" for now,but you can have 2 cameras and a DVD/blue ray or any combo you like.


It will not be a lot of cash to do this mod, if you can solder you can do this, we know there are units out there that can be added for a lot more, that can Bluetooth the date to the unit and in to the screen, this will be a hard wire job for the DIY guy.

P.S if you cant solder we can send you the new wires.


P.S.S. if any one with the 2010 M6 V8 cars that the camera does not work till your moving, this will fix that if it works.

This will be great. I need a front curb camera - my curb-alert has never been 100% reliable and quit altogether recently. I'm assuming there will need to be a switch to select the second camera on the display.

Did you get this working, Ofer? I was trying to do this (add switchable front camera) after installing the Mylink upgrade a few months ago. Only one Camaro5 user seems to have figured out how to get the Mylink camera to turn on without being in reverse in this thread:

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=360514
64stingray added it to his ZL1, but I couldn't figure out how to duplicate his method on a v6.

It's easy enough to add video inputs to other aftermarket headunits since they have switchable video signal, but the issue is Mylink.

When I tried it, I hooked up a front camera and can get it to show up on either my rearview mirror or Mylink with switches, but only if car is in R. If you've figured out an easy way to get the Mylink screen to show a video feed at the flip of a switch without being in REVERSE (or by faking a reverse signal), that'd be awesome and all I'd need. I already have a video amplifier unit with 2in/6out (too many outputs, but should work too)

Would be good if you could set it up to record while your driving, for insurance purposes.

Got tired of waiting, ordered that part above from Amazon and a remote control relay box from Ebay. Ill be installing a front camera this weekend. I don't really want a dvd input so I don't need an audio input.

Are you connecting the front camera to your mylink?

Yes, I don't need audio so I'm just modifying the circuit 64stingray used. I will still have an extra input if I want to add anything else. I didn't want a switch anywhere so I opted for a key fob with 4 buttons that control 4 hidden c/nc/no relays. Will have unused relays if I decide to add anything else and tie it into the remote.

I'm going to do the same thing but only got the 1 channel relay box don't need to add any other cameras. I found that you don't need to go all the way to the trunk to tap into the camera wires you can find them behind the mylink HU. He's a site not a camaro but the wiring is the same maybe it'll help with the install http://gm-volt.com/forum/showthread.php?103313

good luck and let us know your progress

No offense intended. It will be fairly simple since I don't want any audio.

Appreciate all the work you do for Us!

A right side camera will definitely be a plus for a convertible making a left hand turn. The blind spot caused by the sailpanel can hide big trucks.
I really want a chin spoiler camera and a DVD would make long trips more enjoyable.
I'm in no hurry, I'll wait for the PNP, but thumbs up to those who can DIY.
