About the iDatalink KIT-CAM1 Dash and Wiring Kit
Your Camaro is a great car, but the factory radio leaves something to be desired. The KIT-CAM1 dash and wiring kit allows you to install an iDatalink-ready car stereo in the dash panel, while maintaining your Camaro's climate controls, OnStar, backup camera, aux input, and other features. You'll also need iDatalink's Maestro ADS-MRR module (not included) for this installation.
iDatalink's KIT-CAM1 package includes a dash console that matches the fit and finish of your Camaro's dash. You can operate your climate controls from your receiver's touchscreen and the customizable buttons built into the iDatalink dash console. The kit also includes a panel with 2 USB ports, an HDMI port, and a 3.5mm A/V input.
Keep your factory features
The included wiring harness lets you keep your factory amplifier (if equipped) and steering wheel audio controls, as well as your secondary display's functions including audio information, hands-free info display, and navigation information. Your new radio will also display gauge information, parking assist distance, and other vehicle information.

iDatalink KIT-CAM1 Dash and Wiring Kit reviews
This dash kit works exactly as advertised. It looks great installed, and I was able to retain all the original functions of my stock display. Install took a couple of hours. Please read the directions! You have to flash the iDatalink hardware. I had it fully installed before realizing I missed that step. Unlike others, I did not find the color to be an issue. It basically matches the color of the shifter plate (where your car has P, N, D, etc.).
Pros: Easy to install Looks great Retained all the original functions
Cons: I would always like a lower price, but that's on any product!

This faceplate along with iDatalink is simply fantastic. I'd give it a 5 star but the color is off from the factory console. They say it's as close as they can get but with other kits that are spot on maybe it's just "as close as they want to get without putting effort into it". But other than that, I only had 1 issue of the iDatalink not flashing correctly the second time when I was adjusting button configurations and crutchfield sent out a new and it worked flawlessly, for now. I like the flow of this kit and I can view my console gauges now. I only have one complaint and I'll post pic so you can decide for yourself how critical it is to match paint. I thought it would match better but for how well this kit functions with the factory idata, I'm not sending it back. The only thing I ended up liking about my old scosche kit was that the color matched.
Pros: IDatalink is great and all the factory car features work as they should. The kit flows with the dash. Get the idata stereo and this kit makes climate control, instrument and car features just work all on one screen and it's actually not cumbersome as I thought it might be.

Very nice upgrade for the Camaro. It's a somewhat easy install but requires you to take your car apart more then with the pac kit. It also requires the maestro rr to make it work. My suggestion is really read the instructions. I got this because of the ability to get vehicle status on the radio. This kits works great so far. Looks good also making the desk look cleaner. I did not give it 5 stars because it is a little harder to install than the pac kit. Also updated and registering the maestro rr was a pain and it kept saying error after I got through the customization of the buttons. You also have to use internet explorer for it also. I will give a daily use review after a month to see if any problems arise.
Pros: Features Looks
Cons: Programming Maestro RR Having to buy the Maestro RR separately Installation compared to the PAC kit
