SO has anyone used the KP Technologies bypass on their G?
I read the KP Tech forums and it looks like a few 07 + G's used it but I didn't see any pics of what is involved.
Guess I should just contact KP right?
Basically, you remove the shift knob and the panel surrounding it. You remove the center dash piece the the radio buttons are on. You remove the screen. You remove the control unit behind everything.
Once the control unit is out you find the plug that has the main control wires in it. In this harness you can tap the switched 12vdc, the ground, and the reverse signal IF you have an OEM reverse camera. If you don't have the camera you don't need to hook that wire up.
Then, you take apart the navigation controller (a few screws, pretty easy) to expose the contacts on the connector. There will be two wires you need to soder to two of the contacts. You find the correct two contacts (I have pictures of this) and solder them.
If you want to connect the VSS bypass (allows programming while moving) you must find and cut the VSS wire (it is in the same harness). Wire the VSS signal through a relay (one side to pin 30, the other to pin 87A).
Put everything back together and test the system. You enable the VSS bypass by pressing and holding the OK for about 2 seconds.
Here is a shot of the board:
Here is one side of the connector, showing 1 connection:
Here is the other side of the connector, showing the other connection:
