2011 Yukon XL Non NAV w/Bose

Post by bmeth11 » Tue Aug 29, 2017 10:47 pm

Have a couple of questions... First is about the factory backup camera and the ability to retain it. I have a Maestro RR, GM5+ Harness and Pioneer AVIC 8200 NEX. Reading conflicting things about the factory backup camera. Flashing my RR told me that camera features weren't compatible with the Pioneer AVIC 8200 NEX. However instructs say use the brown harness and plug yellow rca into backup camera in on radio and then another says that brown plug is only available with NAV versions but you instructions say otherwise???

Next, with factory Bose do I use high or low level for speakers? Is the Chime speaker needed? And where do I plug the rca for subwoofer and rca for center ( my radio has swl and swr out plugs but no center).

I will hang up and listen...

Thanks!

Ben

Does your camera show on the radio, or on the rear-view mirror? If it's on the mirror, that continues to work after the radio has been changed. The feature that we mention that's only for Kenwood/JVC are more advanced camera features. The basic camera image can be retained on any radio with a screen.

IF it shows on the mirror right now, but you want it to display on the new radio, you must take an RCA cable, splice into the video signal at the mirror, and run it down to the camera input of the Pioneer.

You can use either wiring type. With a Pioneer, I'd recommend using the speaker level connections. They have padding circuits built on to interface with the Bose, so it will work for you. Plug the Sub RCA into Sub. Center is only relevant when you have premium bose (with a center channel).

Thanks Dara. Can someone tell me what two wires I need at the mirror on the Yukon XL or if those wires can also be found under the dash somewhere?

I think they run up through the headliner, so I don't think you can get them in the underdash.

Excellent! Thanks so much. I will give that a go. On the Subwoofer, I have Bose factory. However I don't have the NAV factory so I don't have a plug to get the factory subwoofer. I assume I need to change out the speakers from with filter do the low pass rca to the front and rear rca out pouts on my Pioneer??

No- just leave them as-is. The bose amp does the crossover for the sub on its own.

Thanks! Will give it a go this evening after the day job.

**UPDATE**

Install went great. Took a little longer due to how tight the Pioneer AVIC-8200 NEX fit in the space. Had to trim a little plastic behind the unit. EVERYTHING Works as it said it would. Need to still adjust chime volume as the speaker is extremely LOUD. Also, I havent' wired up the backup camera yet. I have run the RCA from the back of the unit up the Drivers Side A Pillar to the headliner. Have to get a couple T Taps to finish the job behind the mirror and then the job will be complete.

Next us is to add Audiovox Active Headrest 10" Monitors to each rear headrest and then wire the video/audio out from the Pioneer into them for full car video and audio.

Thanks so much for the help DARA!

**UPDATE**

Dara, all is working except Turn signals have No sound from chime speaker or door speakers when using the Car Sources, XM Radio. It seems to work on all other sources.

That is normal operation. We generate all three of those things, and it's not possible for us to simultaneously generate and mix those sounds.
