    dsteinmann, I live in St Charles and have a Tech 2 and CANdi module, and Short term Access to TIS2Web is $55. If a Tech2 can be used to program the 08's, I'd be willing to help you out if you haven't found a dealer to help you.
    It's the TIS2WEB for the programming of the nav radio.

    That's what my service tech used.

    Right, TIS2Web is the web-based service that replaced TIS2000, but you still need the interface as the 'go between' to allow TIS2Web to program the car. That can either be a Tech 2 (a fairly large 12" x 6" device with a LCD) or MDI (A fairly small device with no screen). As my edited post indicates, I've since found out that the Tech 2 can do pass-through programming of the 08 CTS.

    I was there helping my tech. No tech2. A use cable from his desktop to the obd2 port under the dash.

    This is not to say that its the only way, just he way my tech programmed my car

    Sounds like he used the MDI. That can connect to a pc via wireless network, 100Mbps ethernet or USB. The MDI is fairly small and doesn't require direct interaction, so i suspect it could even been sitting 'hidden' next to his pc.

    that would be using the MDI ... the MDI actually is in between the car and the PC but it's easy to miss (especially if it's not sitting out in the open)

    Anyone doing this, the parts number for the rear appliqué camera part have changed apparently. I ordered from gmpartseast.com and got a new part number

    With passive entry - 22739776 ------> NEW# 22768336

    Re: Ideas about the Rear-View Camera for 2008-2010 CTSs

    Yeah, it still referenced the old #. I'm just happy I was able to order it.

    Just hooked everything up tonight and will "activate" the camera with my MDI, but a question... Do I need the 2011 Nav update disc because I was just gonna wait until the 2012 update comes out (the previous owner never updated it from the orig software)? Thanks for any help you all can provide...

    That all depends......if u have everything hooked up & u put the car in reverse then in drive, does the nav screen stay up with either the cam image or go blank & remain up? If it does, then chances are u will need to update the nav radio as this is what I had to do.

    It didn't go so well... The screen doesn't do what it is supposed to. As soon as I put the car in reverse the cam comes on and stays on... even in drive. What I've been doing is backing into spots at work so I don't have to use reverse so much. HEHE Thanks for your help though, it is much appreciated. At this point, i'm just going to wait until the 2012 Nav disc comes out (whenever that is). I have to take my car in to the dealer and I'll see if they can update the soft are at least but not too hopeful as so far they are useless!
