Yes, but it's not easy.

I am working on adding review mirror cameras to my truck. There are many options for rear view micro cameras currently that are pretty straightforward to add to a car. The challenge is how you want to display the camera output. My lovely wife of 49 years cant see the image in the rear view so needs a much larger display. I am going to go with a larger touch screen stereo and feed the cameras to it.

I should add that if you get the correct GM mirror, it should be plug and play for the OnStar electrics.

The bits that are "not easy" are:
- wiring in a power supply for the camera screen and auto-dimming.
- wiring the camera video feed.
- replacing the (now missing) cabin lights.
