Put a front and back ccd camera on my RAM but I used a LockPick V3 so it was easy to wire all the wiring goes to the LockPick and you get many other options with the lockpick, one is you save a trip to the dealer and you can put the cameras on whenever you want. I like the front cam coming on when you slow down so when parking in parking lots since I use a handicap plate I always seem to have a pole or something hard to see up front.

I was wondering the same thing! I have an 09 but when I road in my buddie's '10, I noticed that his shows individual tire pressure. If it's possible I'm all for it but I heard a rumors of people going into the dealership for updates ie: ECU /EVIC flash, and in turn the lockpick is disabled causing it not to work.. that true anyone?!

Could be that you just need to undo the lockpick, then unplug the neg. bat cable for a bit then hook it back up. Now be sure to have the drivers door closed the key out of ign. and dont touch brake then plug the LOck Pick box in again. Should fix you up.

I went to the dealership today for the HVAC recall and asked if there was an update from the 09 to 10 evic screens. They said nothign was available.

Well if it comes on and is only one tire I am sure by eye you will be able to tell. One will look lower for sure. You must still go to gas stations that pump your gas for you.? J/K

Well then you dont know much about tires, the TPMS will come on for only a few PSI difference, if you tow, those numbers are VERY important, and you cant always tell when loaded that the tire is getting lower. And no I dont go and get my gas pumped, I just fueled a Leer jet last night after working on the fuel control, but what do I know......

I had an 09 and now have a 10. You're correct about the differences regarding the TPMS. Unfortunately the 09 EVIC cannot be "flashed" to upgrade it to the 2010 version. I also believe the 2010 TPMS system is different as well.

The mirror tilt is only available in the Laramie as far as I've seen. Personally I didn't like it on my 09 and turned it off. They tilted so much all I could see was the rear wheels, not the back end itself.

I'm much happier with my back-up sensors and camera plus my towing mirrors.

Many EVIC features are a function of the truck model. Tilting mirrors is one of those; it is specific to the Laramie. I have also discovered that features like memory seats/mirrors/etc are also model specific and can't easily be added to a model that didn't specifically come with them.
