2011 Dash Removal + Lockpick + camera

I installed the lockpick in my 2011 and as stated in another thread it is not compatible for the 2011 yet. They are working on an update that should be out in 2 weeks.

Anyway, I thought I'd share the steps to remove the dash as I had to do it through trial and error.

First you have to remove a total of 4 screws. The panel under the steering wheel just pulls off to expose 2 of these screws. The third screw is behind the power window panel in the center of the dash. (If you dont have power windows I think its just a cubby) Remove this panel by pulling out to expose the third screw. The 4th screw is under the plastic mat in the console on top of the dash.

Once you remove these 4 screws the dash just pulls off. You have to unclip the power supply to the power window panel in order to remove the dash.
The screws have the hex head so a socket set is necessary.

Had the lockpick installed in about 15 minutes even with finding the screws the hard way.

I just ran the camera wire under the console to the drivers seat then across and under the trim to the rear. Haven't mounted the camera yet still trying to decide the best place.

It is a plug and play deivce that enables many functions that are not available with the factory settings. Such video showing on the front screen while in motion, input of addressess to the nav while in motion, adds audio video in/out for entertainment mods, provides powers sources for different things, easy bluetooth setup etc look it up online

Just looked it up, Pretty cool stuff.

Only other question I have is does it throw a code or is there any way a dealer would know you put one on if you took it off for service?

I'm not 100 percent sure on this but I dont think so. I had one in my 2008 tahoe and had it in for service for an electrical probelm with the rear seat and they never said anything. I even cut a couple wire for that one. This unite is strictly plug and play.

How did you pull off the power window switch panel. It's in there really tight, and I don't want to break anything trying to pull it out. How did you do it?

rxjoe, i just installed the lockpick onto an 2011 RHB into a 2008 jeep JK. Everthing is unlocked and working except for the nav on motion. What functionality didn't you have?
