Ever since the first 5th generation Camaro rolled off the dealership lot, car audio enthusiasts have been searching for the perfect solution to upgrade the factory head unit to something with more functionality. For years there have only been two real solutions; one from Scosche (GM5201AB) and the other from Metra (99-3010S). Either kit will allow the owner to retain climate control, door lock/unlock, heated seat, & hazard light functionality, but some would argue that both kits lack the “retro” / “factory” look that many of us fell in love with.
It appears that a company called HiCES Technology Ltd. has thrown its hat into the ring with the ANCH809/8300AG. As of today, we have no information regarding pricing or where to purchase the head unit. However, the product rendering and feature list that they have listed on the website (plus the video we’ve found) has many of us drooling in anticipation. We’ll keep you updated as we do some more research. Updates are listed below.
