I'd probably buy that if it integrates with my 2013 Base GT, allows me to keep sync (bluetooth phone, usb ipod, etc) and I can add Sirius. Some of the other units look like I cannot retain SYNC + add Sirius because of how they integrate with each other.

All these people worried about sync and blue tooth and USB iPod..... IT COMES BUILT INTO THE SCREEN YOU BUY!!!. There's no reason to worry about retaining your stock stuff. You even can buy the interface adapter so your steering wheel works for the premiums. The dashboard adapter has nothing to do with sync or any of that. Its just so you can install the screen into your dashboard. I bought a 2012 base knowing I'd change everything and didn't care about sync. Saved money, have a way better radio, speakers, amps, nav and about to order my custom leather from Katzkin.

My 2013 Base does have SYNC though, and I actually do like the voice control of USB/Bluetooth Streaming, Directions, Services, etc. I intend to keep these features over the aftermarket ones.

There are new gateways coming out, namely the Kenwood/iDataLink Maestro that will integrate the Sync features into the actual headunit.

If my car did not have SYNC, it would be a different story. But I actually do like it, and would like to keep it.

That said, this is the first dash kit that's actually in a form I can swallow. I'd love to see something in the future with a detachable LCD which can place the screen higher.

Anybody have a link with pics to removing the factory radio? Mainly how to remove the console around the shifter with an automatic tranny. Can't seem to find much on youtube.

Hi all

I've just seen this thread. I did not order the factory electronics package in my 2012 GT Premium, because the NAV is anyway not working here in Switzerland/Europe.

I'm also planning to use either the Metra or Scoshe kit.
Has anybody already done it with full inegration of SYNC and steering wheel controls?
For me it would be very important to keep these features.

anyone have the original radio bezel lying around? lol. I really dont like the ac controls the metra and scosche use. Im tempted to try and cut a single DIN hole in a stock bezel to mount it, like where the factory cd player controls are. I have a base with no sync or anything, and just am not a fan of keeping the stock system and running a processor or loc, would rather have a true hu
