The Metra Dash Kit (99-3010s for the 10-11 Camaro) cleans up the ugly radio and A/C controls. It also allows the car owner to customize the color of the LCD display and select the trucker lady if desired. The Kenwood radio selected (DNX6980) offers AM/FM Radio, Satellite Radio, Backup Camera, Nav System, CD/DVD Player and Bluetooth. The Kenwood allows customization of the colors as well. I configured the dash kit LCD colors and the radio button colors to match the Camaro’s light blue interior lighting.
The Metra kit seemed easy enough to install. However, the radio, backup camera, antenna, etc. was a little too much for me to feel comfortable installing myself. I ordered all of the parts below through a local car audio company. I could have gotten a few of the items a little cheaper, but I wanted the installer to be responsible for everything. This provides a faster resolution in the event an item arrives defective.
