I have a standard radio and since I will need to upgrade hardware for ON-STAR in Canada does anyone know if a my link radio system can be put in to take advantage of an on screen map as opposed to just voice navigation. Would it be plug and play or would the wiring harness not work

It's definitely not plug-n-play, the BCM needs to be reprogrammed as well. If you want maps, use Google maps on your smart phone, works a charm and WAY more cost effective than changing the head unit.

I would like to know as well. Doesn't have to be the mylink. Just want the touchscreen. I have the pioneer system with the standard dot matrix screen. Could I just get the screen and housing for it and connect it to the radio that's already in there?
