I have a 2011 Buick Lacrosse CX and would like to replace

This answer was rated:

I have a 2011 Buick Lacrosse CX and would like to replace the factory interior mirror with one that has a backup camera monitor incorporated. Looks like several other GM models used such a mirror and the mirror has a similar (same?) connector as mine. Is this possible and if so, what pin(s) do I use for connecting the camera?

It is not as easy as adding or swapping Pins, as you will have to run seperate wires anyhow.
Then trying to locate Factory Pins to fit the GM Plug.
Since you will be replacing the Factory Inside Mirror, it would be less expensive & likely better to go Aftermarket
Factory look can be retained by certain manufacturers, like:
(click link): https://www.amazon.com/Master-Tailgaters-Adjusting-Brightness-Temperature/dp/B01KDT4WHY/ref=sr_1_cc_1?s=aps&ie=UTF8&qid=1506000279&vehicle=2***-**-****------------1-0&sr=1-1-catcorr&ymm=2011%3Abuick%3Alacrosse&keywords=rear+view+mirror+with+compass+and+temperature

.

I have used this Manufacturer & the product is as good, if not better than Factory
You will need a Rear Camera, as there are many types.
A License Frame Camera would be easiest to install
You also would need to install the Temperature Probe up front
.
There are many Manufacturers & some supply everything, like:
https://www.amazon.com/Rear-View-Safety-RVS-776718-DCT-Temperature/dp/B00V7670DG/ref=sr_1_12?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1506000849&sr=1-12&keywords=rear+view+mirror+with+compass+and+temperature+with+camera

.

Installing a GM Mirror & adding Pins & using the correct slots will depend on what the Mirror came from or Year, Make & Model it is for, as many GM vehicle wiring diagrams are different

Your advice looks really good. That Master-Tailgaters mirror looks great. Do you know if this mirror will work with a wireless remote such as the AUTO-VOX TR1

assuming that I can find a place to mount it. I am also looking at the AUTO-VOX Cam1 HD. Will I be satisfied with both of these tied in with the Master-Tailgaters mirror?

Wireless or hard wired, as long as the Camera has the Video Output Plug (typically yellow), yes, it will work

AUTO-VOX Cam1 HD will also work

As far a satisfaction, that would be "personal" & I could not comment on that
