    This is correct for 2008-2009's (There is one wire that needs to be cut) 2010's and up do not need to do this.

    1 more question about the pac unit, what about ability to hook up back up camera? As I have a 2010 V, and have already got a hold of b/u camera and want use it lol. Does it just tap in to the PAC harness or is it more involved?

    There are no video inputs on the PAC unit. If the CTS had a rear view camera option you can tap into the video in for the camera manually but the harder part would be trying to get your dealer to activate the rear view camera inputs on the navigation unit. To reprogram your radio you need a Tech II tool and dealers will charge anywhere from $60 to $130 to do this.

    Tomm,

    Any word on the new coastal CTS universal solution having a video input jack that can be activated by the steering wheel button.. If not, could you have them consider it. Tnx

    The new CTS lockpick if released will have video input(s), There were some changes with many 2012 GM vehicles which causes compatibility issues with the new unreleased product so they are still working on it. They are working on one model that will work on different vehicles with different dip settings.

    I see them available but How do I know if they can work with my 2006 DTS? Im not really mechanically inclined.

    Re: NU-CTS2 by PAC Audio or LockPick by Coastal Tech

    New Coastal CTS Lockpick is finally done and we will have pricing on Monday. It will be higher in price than the PAC Unit but the Coastal unit will be much better. Unlike the PAC unit there is NO wire splicing needed and is completely plug and play. Will also have multiple inputs (Pac Unit has none) I will post all the details tomorrow for those that have been waiting.

    Re: NU-CTS2 by PAC Audio or LockPick by Coastal Tech

    I am new to this board but have browsed heavily over the past week. I am likely to place a order for Pac unit soon. Based off what I have read here, the lockpick will allow you to play DVDs and utilize the navigation while the car is in motion but the device is not specifically designed to support video out from a smart phone as is.....correct? Does the PAC unit for a 2008 CTS have a video input at all? If so, would a device such as this http://www.skivatech.com/categories/...ter/index.html work? It would be nice to stream netflix or slingbox home TV from my iphone. Sorry if already discussed, I have not seen reference to it in my reading here.

    **Edit** I now see Tomm's post that a new Coastal unit is available but could not find one on his site for the CTS. Has anyone tested it with a iphone and video streaming?

    We have the new Coastal Units in stock but we have not updated them on the site yet. If you go with the PAC Unit and you have a 2008-2009 it will require you to cut and splice a wire and the PAC units DO NOT have a direct video input. The new Coastal Unit does not require any cutting and it has 2 Video inputs.

    Re: NU-CTS2 by PAC Audio or LockPick by Coastal Tech

    Tomm, I am ready to purchase a lockpick. I have a 2010 CTS. I do not want to cut any wires, I do not need any additional video inputs, and I do not want watch DVDs while driving. I simply want to use the nav while the car is in motion. Would you recommend the PAC or Coastal Tech unit? Are your new Coastal Tech units ready for shipping? If so, what is the model number and what is the price? I am also interested in which is easier to use. I would prefer not to have to press a lot of setup buttons on the steering wheel to get it to work. Is it possible to have the unit active whenever the car is started? Thanks. Jim

    When you say unlock the Navigation what exactly do you mean? Just unlock the menu's so that you can make changes to your navigation while in motion. If that is all you are after than the PAC unit would be the lower cost option at $199.95 shipped. We have not nailed down our pricing on the new Coastal unit which is why it has not been posted yet. Coastal has not nailed it down yet but based on what we paid on our initial shipment we received, the cost on the Coastal CTS Lockpick would be around $269 - $279 or so. Coastal is selling them for $319.95 right now. We do have them in stock and will try to get them on our site later today.

    Thanks. It looks like the PAC unit would be the most cost effective option for me.
