This all-new video interface allows for the installation of multiple cameras around the vehicle providing unparalleled safety through added driver awareness. Covering a wide variety of the most popular GM trucks and cars with the 8″ MyLink system including the Chevrolet Silverado, Colorado, Tahoe & Suburban & GMC Sierra, Yukon and Canyon.
Considering the large front and side blind spots in most large trucks & SUV’s, adding cameras in both locations practically eliminate them, making towing with large trailers and parking a breeze!
Imagine being able to hitch your fifth wheel trailer without help or view the road from the rear of a towed trailer – you could even add a camera inside the trailer to monitor your horses, livestock or toys. Camera options include rearview, sideview/blindspot, forward-facing, cargo/trailer and any other camera mounting location that you choose!
In addition, drivers can connect their mobile phone or tablet to the included HDMI input and instantly share their smartphone’s screen to the 8″ My Link factory screen of their vehicle! This gives the ability to view any navigation app such as Waze, Google Maps etc., or any entertainment app such as YouTube, Netflix or Slingbox/Sling TV on the factory screen while streaming the audio via Bluetooth or via the factory AUX jack. (Since there are no in-motion restrictions on HDMI playback, please limit your use of entertainment apps to off-road use only)
The HDMI input can also be used to hook up any HDMI device such as Roku or Chromecast, or even a game console such as PS4 or XBox! When combined with the Wi-Fi hotspot that comes stock in newer GM vehicles (or on your smartphone), the possibilities are virtually limitless for in-car entertainment!
NOTE: HDMI input passes video ONLY. Audio will come through Bluetooth or AUX jack. HDMI device must allow Bluetooth or headphone audio output in order to hear audio.
