Default Lockpick install on a 2011 Shelby GT500

I ordered the following from Coastal ETech:
http://www.coastaletech.com/synclockpick.htm

Sync LP1-LockPick
SYNCCAM12 plug and play harness
MINICAM221 front camera
BARCAM221 night vision rear camera

Overall I would say I am satisfied. The kit is pricey but excellent quality and a true plug and play. However, the kit I received did not work right out of the box, (Ford changed something on the later build date 2011s with Sync). I had to deal with Coastal Etech's terrible customer service for 3 months before they finally sent 2 technicians to my place to work on updating the Lockpick for all 2011s.
As you can see in the video below everything is finally working.

Here are some install pictures:

1) First mounting the front camera:
I removed the front clip and drilled into then lower grille. I originally mounted the camera on the lower grille without removing the front clip with just zip-ties and double sided tape.

Front camera mounted with zip-ties and double sided tape:

2) Mounting the rear camera above the license plate.

3) Run the wires from the camera to the head unit.

4) Remove the screen and hard drive. By far the most difficult task. First problem is the shift ball on the 2010+ gt500s are held on with locktite, so you cannot remove the center console by hand. The second problem is there are 9 different connections on the back of the hard drive. Finally there is no slack in any of the wires!!

5) Lastly connect the lockpick wiring harness to the hard drive. Mount the lockpick, I mounted it behind the glove box using double sided tape. Connect the cameras using the supplied harnesses, I choose to solder the camera power connections rather then use the supplied crimp tubes.

6) Put the head unit and interior back together. Enjoy!

Ok...thanks. I was thinking it was something like the Mercedes S class front view night vision.

Nice! Wow! that is awesome.

This kit is very tempting to buy,
but the customer service issue would probably be a no-go for me pulling the trigger.

Seeing stuff like this REALLY makes me want to trade in my base GT and get a premium with sync and navigation.

I too bought the base 300a GT. And I do want the stuff like built-in nav and rear view assist, but I planned on buying aftermarket gear for that anyway.

If you don't mind me asking, what exactly would you use a front camera for?

Easy enough, so you don't pull too far forward and smash your bumper into one of the parking curbs.

Default Lockpick install on a 2011 Shelby GT500

Great post, I just picked up a 2012 Shelby GT500 and was emailing Coastaletech and they said no problem as I have the same system as yours. Have you had any problems with it and do you know anything about it voiding any warranty with Ford?

Thanks

i am in Australia, and i have a 2011 GT500 Super Snake and just finishing up on the conversion to RHD and the last thing i need to do is install and camera and get Australian maps to work on this baby.

your post helped a lot as the 24hr chat support at Coastal sucks!

i was wondering if you could give me more specific details of what they had to do to get the lockpick to work and even better a phone contact at Coastal.

Cheers

George

Default Sync Lock pick

I received my lock pick and cameras last week and installed them over the weekend. They work great and with the help from this post and another I found here http://www.corral.net/index.php/tech...s/181-lockpick
the installation went very smoothly. Just like they say, it really is plug and play. The hardest part was taking the DVD player out, but just be paitent and you can work your hands to the back of the player to get everything unplugged.

Nice. I thought the electronics package had all this included other than the front camera. I can't really ever see me switching to the front camera enough to make it worth while but nice install regardless.

Isn't that what depth perception is for?
