    I think there is a Lockpick that works on 2010's. That's not to make any comment on a "nu-sts". I would expect it to be a lot easier & cheaper just to re-sell the Lockpick than re-inventing it.

    I have not played with any 2010 STS units but I did not think anything was different with the 2010 Navigation units so the normal lockpicks should work. Who did you contact that said there was no working STS Lockpick for 2010's?

    Heres a copy of the email I recieved:
    Thank you so much for your inquiry. Unfortunately at this time your 2010 STS is not on the approved list of vehicles that work with the LockPick product. However, we are always adding new makes and models to the lineup. I would recommend checking back with us within a couple of months to ensure compatibility with your particular vehicle. Thanks again and I look forward to speaking with you soon.

    We don't have any indication that anything was changed in 2010 that will not make the current lockpick that we sell not work with the 2010's.

    Buy the lockpick from us and be the first to try it in a 2010. The navigation system is the same so I cant see any reason for it not to work. If it does not work we will refund you 100% and pay the shipping both ways.
