Our take on the Scosche GM5201AB Factory Integration Adapter

by Dave Delamere
Scosche
Scosche GM5201AB touchscreen display

The customizable touchscreen display includes climate controls.

You bought a 2010-up Camaro — great car, but its console makes it tough to upgrade the factory radio. The Scosche GM5201AB integration adapter replaces your Camaro's dash panel, so you can install a single- or double-DIN car stereo. This dash panel includes a color touchscreen display for your climate controls. Using this touchscreen display's menu system, you can also adjust the settings for the display and various functions in your Chevy. You'll also get built-in buttons alongside the display for your Camaro's fan speed, hazard lights, and door locks.

The Scosche GM5201AB is a perfect match for the color, texture, and contours of your dash. You can use the included wiring interface to connect your new receiver and retain your factory steering wheel audio controls.

Please enter your vehicle information or call an Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 to find out if this package is compatible with your vehicle. Warranty: 1 year.

Installation note: This interface does not retain OnStar®.

Note: Most vehicles will require additional installation parts — please identify your vehicle if you haven’t done so, then check here for a list of parts. You can also call an Advisor for more information.

We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.

Features

Vehicle Compatibility: The Scosche GM5201AB integration package allows you to replace your 2010-up Chevy Camaro's factory stereo with an aftermarket head unit to improve the overall sound quality of your vehicle's audio system. Please consult Crutchfield's Outfit My Car to see if your vehicle is compatible.

Dash Kit: The dash kit fits both double-DIN or single-DIN aftermarket head units. A pocket is included for single-DIN head units. This dash kit has been designed with high quality automotive grade ABS plastic to match the texture and paint of your factory panels.

Integrated Touchscreen w/ Climate Controls: The Scosche GM5201AB dash kit features a full color touchscreen and push-button controls for your vehicle's HVAC system. Its configurable for single or dual climate control.

Stereo Replacement Harness: The included wiring harness connects between the GM5201AB's dash kit, your new aftermarket head unit, and your vehicle's factory radio harness. There is a 24-pin and 8-pin connector which plugs behind dash kit, and two multi-pin molex connectors which plug into your factory radio harness. The wiring harness will need to be hardwired to your aftermarket head unit's harness (see wire chart below).

Steering Wheel Control Retention: The included stereo replacement harness also includes a steering wheel control output, which allows you to keep your vehicle's factory steering wheel controls when replacing the factory radio with an aftermarket head unit that features a SWC input. No additional interface or programming is necessary.

Optional OnStar Retention Interface: If your Chevy Camaro features OnStar and you would like to keep this feature when installing an aftermarket head unit, you will need to purchase the Scosche CAMOSM OnStar retention interface (sold separately). Otherwise, you will lose your factory OnStar when installing an aftermarket head unit.

2010 Camaro coupe Single Din to Double DIN with this install kit.

Written By Anonymous, Dallas, TX on Wednesday, February 12, 2014
 
Looks OEM with single DIN to double DIN Pioneer CD-DVD Head. Everything works just as OEM. Better sound quality and professsional OEM look. Professionally installed with some wiring issues. For a simple upgrade, "do it yourself" and save some bucks. Install instructions easy to understand, even for the "first timer."

Good....But....

Written By TimB, Phoenix, AZ on Thursday, January 30, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Unfortunately, you pretty much have to buy this or the Metra adapter to replace the factory head unit. I did like that when you bundle this with a unit, Crutchfield knocks the price in half which is the cheapest around by far. The unit itself has some problems. Sometimes, the door chime will beep constantly and not turn off ever (if you turn on the hazards and turn off it will stop the beeping). This was tolerable, but this issue is way worse. The distance that your stock keyless entry funtions is reduced to almost nothing! I have to be within 5 feet of the car for it to work! I have searched the Camaro forums and found numerous people with the same issues. I emailed Scosche however they stated since they are unable to recreate the problem, they don't know how to fix.

So if you must have an aftermarket head unit, this definitely looks better than the Metra. If the stock unit doesn't really bother you, than stick with it.
Pros:
Nice Touchscreen Clean Look Functions correctly
Cons:
Lowers the distance of keyless entry Sometimes cannot stop door chime
