    Since it's only the beeping or light one, any aftermarket solution would be identical in function. I don't know if there's a green-yellow-red light but if not you can go off the tone, both work the same. For $450+install I'd go aftermarket.

    No, if you want the OEM functionality you have to get the OEM part. It'll just be a display on the RNS. The backup camera is a whole 'nother deal.

    Dealer says will integrate nicely, so there's one on order to be installed when the car ever gets here...along with the block heater that the dealer's not too happy about...
