I have been in contact with their support over the past week. Here is what I have learned:

-The screen is plug and play compatible with my coupe with NAV/tech package.
-Bluetooth will work
-Steering wheel controls will work
-Backup camera will work
-Climate Control is through the screen now
-30 day return policy with 1 year warranty
-If there are issues after the 1 year warranty you can pay a labor fee to have them diagnose/repair

I'll be picking this up sometime in the Spring. Hopefully more guys will have tried it out by then. If not I'll post up and let everyone know how the install went and my impressions of the screen. If it's not plug and play and ends up being a hassle, I'll simply return it.

Cheers!

I'm trying to exhibit some self control and wait until after the holidays haha. I've already spent more than I should have this Christmas lol.

I am not sure if it does or not. That would be pretty cool though. As far as internal storage, I am not sure. If it has USB inputs maybe storage could be added using that.

Installed in Minnesota and love it! 95% plug and play atm, had to re-pin the backup camera harness and add a 12v-6v step-down converter for it.

I might have to hit you up on how you did that for the backup camera whenever I buy mine.

When I purchase mine, I'm thinking of a couple things visually I might change. Such as carbon fiber wrap on that black trim and painting those silver ***** gunmetal.

On a random side note. Has anyone attempted to paint their interior door handles? Not the pulls but the handle/lock you use to open. I'm assuming I would definitely need to sand them down past that finish or perhaps it a weird foil wrap like our cheap key buttons. Then primer, paint, clear. I'm in a slow process of turning any silver/polished trim to gunmetal or carbon fiber.

Someone on the group chat explained how they connected the camera with pictures provided. Here's a screenshot of his explanation plus pictures. Hopes that helps.

Also as the post says thats for models before 09. For 2010+ they said you will need a 12v to 6v step down converter

​​​​​​​thanks but I have a 2013 so I would still need to figure out which wire it is, plus I thought we were discussing how to get the backup camera to work when in reverse, I really have no need to view mybackup camera while driving. So if the plug n play works with the backup camera then I'm good to go.
