I installed the Lockpick CHR550 a couple weeks ago and am just getting around to posting a few pics up.
I picked up the CHR550 off of ebay over other versions for a couple of reasons. First, it is the latest release which is supposed to fix previous problems with the Mygig locking up. Second, the CHR550 has multiple camera inputs which I was going to use for a camera for my camper (Another post on that to come later). Finally, the Lockpick wiring harness has multiple 12V power already wired in so I can power everything up without having to run a lot of wires.
1st thing to do was take apart the dash.
Next thing is to plug the Lockpick in (No picture for this step). There are two large plugs on the back of the mygig which come out of the headunit and plug into the Lockpick. The Lockpick then plugs into the back of the headunit. Seriously plug and play.
Here is a stock photo of the Lockpick wiring
Now that I have the headunit plugged in, I ran power for my camper camera and a future front camera.
A couple pics of the install process
Remember to set the dipswitches BEFORE you power everything up. I forgot to set the switches first and it did NOT work right. Depending on what system you have will depend on which switches to set.
I ran the ipod cable to the glove box as well as the USB cable it comes with so you can update it when the updates are available.
Turn everything on and you have a new button next to the Radio, SAT, AUX buttons known as TV.
Also a note to those who already have the TV button as part of a Sirrius package. From the instructions:
Now I have full control of the ipod (4th gen ipod touch) in the glove box from the steering wheel controls, unlocked video on demand, and I can change my navigation (or my passenger can) while on the move.
I also have control of the factory backup cam to view while I'm driving if I need. For the 2011, there is NO need to run a separate power wire for this to work. When you are done plugging it all in, it will work.
Total install time couldn't have been more than an hour. The dash really comes apart easy and the Lockpick is plug and play. There is a ton of room behind the dash to store the Lockpick and if you ever had to take it out if you wanted to, nothing is permanent.

Nav while driving
All in all, I'm happy with it. My biggest reason was for the camera inputs and the ability to use the nav while actually navigation. Mission accomplished.
