How come you ordered an SLT1 and put some many options on it. Is there a particular reason you didn't order the SLT2 with the same extra options?

I will try to get some pics of the VR3 cam here soon...it was a lil nerve wrenching because I drilled a hole in the liftgate for the wires to reach the reverse light that I spliced into.

On the why SLT-1:

We couldn't find what we wanted when looking; we either found low-end units with nothing...or high-end units with items we wouldn't use and didn't want to pay for such as the nav/dvd player/awd/hitch. We already have a duramax we use to travel that covers all that. So the dealer offered to order us one and we haggled on that.

I determined the only thing I was missing out on by ordering SLT-1 and not SLT-2 is not being able to power fold my mirrors like I do in my old Avalanche. Also I could not upgrade to HID on SLT-1. The additional pwr seating and window options wasn't enought to add 2K to the bottom line (2k because I would have added HID also if getting SLT2). Additionally I would have wanted the reverse cam nav radio...now its $5K higher!

Anyways, I worked it to $34,784.24 + ttl. minus carcraft mabobber discount and some gm card dollars.

Thats a great price, no wonder you grab it.... :thumb:

and you can just add options/upgrade later that you see fit especially when aftermarket dealers start making cool stuff for the Acadia... ;D

Here's those VR3 pics. this is a newer model than the one I have for my truck; and wireless transmitter too. My wife keeps the monitor hidden in the cubby and pulls it out only when she needs it. It will actually just stay above the gear; not hanging down like in the picture. Also she has it plugged into the acc plug in that is under the storage tray.

Thanks JOENICKERS!!! ;D is this a dealer installed option? and is it absolutely wireless? can you post pics of the monitor when engage in reverse. I would have opted to have a rearview cam as an option for the Acadia for my wife but did not love the Nav system. This would be a quick solution. :thumb:

bought the vR3 at PEP BOYS $79 - a $20 mail in rebate. I tried to find that 1 inch bigger costco camera but they don't carry it here in ALBuquerque; anyways glad I didn't get that one since its not too adjustable and would not have fit in the cubby.

-late!
