    I just use safari on my iPhone when doing the forums.
    Yeah there's just too many ads for my iPhone to handle using the website in safari.

    Re: Backup Camera Interface

    So I'm guessing this died?

    Technically we can for the reverse cam but i prefer for it to default to it automatically when putting in reverse. To install night-vision you should just run the AUX so you can have access to it any time...
    Was re-reading this ... If I used AUX in for that then I'd not be able to have music playing via another source at the time.
    A display hi-jack is the best option.

    I ended up selling the radio locally before I ever sent it out for testing.

    Been meaning to grab the one at the pick a part but as you know I havent been there in a LONG time.

    Sad. It's nice that you sold it but it kind of sucks for moving this project forwards.

    I was just driving a 2014 Cadillac ATS and it has this particular option. But I couldn't find out where the camera was. I think is hidden in the XM radio receiver on the roof.

    Seems there's no easy way to accomplish this on our vehicles. It also uses the BT to play my music from my iPhone. It connects the same way pairing the phone does in my STS. But MY car somehow doesn't like playing the audio thru the car via BT. Sucks!!!! Gotta use the audio jacks in the console and choose video. Sucks really bad. But if U don't have a lockpick, U have the ghetto-rig everything. Sucks....

    Re: Backup Camera Interface

    Well at least when you do play music, the sound system doesn't... suck.

    And what do you mean about the lockpick comment? You can't watch video on CUE while the car is in gear..
    The car is almost 10 years newer than yours.. needless to say it's going to have some better technology in it. But I'm with you man. When I got out of my 79 coupe Deville and got in the STS, I was absolutely livid that the CDV didn't have nav.

    Re: Backup Camera Interface

    I'll take the better 15 speaker sound system in the STS over what the XTS and ATS and sacrifice the bt audio streaming ability.

    Re: Backup Camera Interface

    Hands down. Carter (carter's sts) mentioned in a thread on the STS-V forum that he's nervous that a future car he buys won't have as good a sound system as what he has. And I agree. I believe they're upgrading the ATS premium sound from 10 to 13 speakers. Hopefully they bump the CTS from 13. I've never heard the CTS's premium sound system but hopefully it blows me away.

    The ATS was a rental. And I was stating the truth. And who cares if the video doesn't play while driving? I didn't watch a video anyways. But my daughters's 2004 Honda Element had an aux 1/8 jack tht you could plug directly in. The STS has a WAY better sound quality than the ATS. My comment wasn't abiout video at all. It was that it sucks that I have to go thru the audio RCA lines to play my iPhone music. And unlike GUY, I didn't replace my older car with the STS. I drove the newer rental while MY older car was getting repairs. Trust me, if I wanted and XTS or ATS, I would walk right in and drive it off the fricken floor... And have no monthly payments. Now, I love my car, it's sound system, and everything else. But I wish it had some conveniences I like, and usually there may be a way to achieve this. And most replies here are helpful. Most of them. I just hoped there would be a way to make the BT work between my phone and the audio system without buying a whole new head unit. That was all. My older car happened to be a 2003 Seville (last of the old body style) STS that DID have NAV. And the older before that was a 2000, and before that, my 99 STS. I'm on my 4th STS.
