I am waiting to see if the 2014 Chevy SS one is compatible with our cars. It is touch screen and the car is supposed to be a new "G8" so hopefully they will use the same wiring and such.

Not even remotely compatible. The entire dash is redesigned. None of the parts are the same anymore. And the whole car network (GM LAN) is switched over from Australian Holden one to the standard GM one. So, even if you source entire interior from a crashed SS car down the road, it still won't be electronically compatible with G8.

If you search for the 1st introduction thread made you'll see a few people with it installed. I think the price scares off most people (unfortunately myself including).

I also think more people would be inclined to buy it if it had Navigation, but JHP said that due to the map issues it really wasnt possible. I was looking at possible doing a touch screen overlay, but the composite-only input for our screen is a pretty big limiting factor for video quality.

Only one person in there has it, was hoping to find another review before spending that kind of money.

[email protected] has the iQ touch screen set up in his G8.
There are 10+ G8s with this radio upgrade, another was shipped this week.

Also JHP are testing an interface GPS to suit iQ touch screen radio upgrade for North America... This will be an upgrade option for all the iQ radio upgrades already sold for G8s.

Oh, I've watched several times since he first posted it. Researched the GPS a bit too. It was very tough coming to a definitive answer on if the system could be applied to a US market...at least without the financing and resources to get it done. I hope that JHP (or anyone else) can do it. It'd be great news.
