Hey all, I'm thinking about upgrading my dash screen to the chevy cruze touchscreen that came in later models, some online threads of other forums say that it can't be done, some say that just features that come in the newer model lioe maps, won't work which I'm fine with

Anyone perform this mod? Anyone have any info to throw? My heart isn't set on this and if the chevy screen won't work I won't do anything and just leave my screen as is. Thanks for any help

If you plan on adding a backup camera, I'd suggest looking for a '15 or '16 (1st Gen) radio. Moving backup guidelines were added for the 2015 model year. It really helps.

FYI this can get expensive, and very time consuming to do. And technically very few people have successfully done it.
I guess I'm curious as to what I need, the car gets stored for the winter, I want to use that time to do it, it'll give me 6 months to do it and get all the things I need, I plan on doing the door speakers as well, I don't want to add any options like have orbcamera to the car but I want all current options to remain the same, if that's not possible ill stick with my ugly screen lol

If you buy the MVI harness and send the radio to be programmed then you can install everything in a couple hours.

If you program the radio yourself, I would plan on a couple hours to disassemble the radio, program the chip and reassemble it.

Building the wiring harness yourself takes a little more time, and you need experience soldering and crimping tiny connectors. But, it's not that hard.

I'm an electrician, I'm comfortable with wires but I like to buy parts new, how i was raised lol, I'd send the radii to be programmed too, not something I want to do, how much does that run ya?
