The lockpick worked great otherwise. I don't remember if it was a V.2 or a V.3 but I'm wondering if anyone has experienced this with the new CHR550? My other question is do you still have to run a power wire to the backup cam in order to use it while in motion? If so are the any photos, posts, or suggestions detailing how to do this?
I've had no glitches with the 550 since I corrected the bent pins like I have heard about with previous versions.
I can't speak for previous years, but for the 2011, there is no need to run an extra power wire for the backup camera. The camera always works when I switch to view it when driving.
Take a look at the link above I posted. I have a couple pics in that thread of the install.
