Anyone swapped in an aftermarket touchscreen to their 2012 Cruze?

I am looking at purchasing a 2012 LTZ with GPS but my wife and I really like the MyLink system on the 2013 Cruze's. I have read that it is almost imposible to swap the Mylink from the 2013 Cruze's into a 2011-2012, so I am looking into aftermarket options.

Anyone out there done this? what unit did you use & how do you like it?

I found a pioneer unit Model number PIEN-064 which is under $400 (link below) I am looking for something Like this, I want the factory look.

That's scary looking. First of all Pioneer is spelt wrong, second the review sounds like it's written by the seller. Anyway, you can install it but you will need the GM install kit.

Yes, it is a foreign made knock off of the "Pioneer" brand. I ought one of these knock off units a few years back for my Silverado and it was the biggest piece of trash I ever purchased.

that was a quick search, anyone have any reccomendations on what specifically I should use? I looked on crutchfield and they do not offer anything oem looking. I dont want to install a double din and have the factory GPS screen above it will look tacky.

thanks,

Gibson- if you hang tight for a couple of days we are on the final test of upgrading our radio to the MyLink touchscreen units from the base system.

The Verano MyLink in the Cruze is the thread where we are going through this.
