Is there a way to add an AUX input to the stock head unit?  I have the 6 disk with 10-speaker and no on star.

If at all possible, would something like one of these work?

I really want to do this to get rid of the little bit of static noise I get while using my drive+play iPod system.  Also, since the system plays over direct FM connection, it's not as loud as a CD or AUX connection would be.

Thanks guys!

Hey there,

So I looked into this a long time ago (pre Drive+Play) and I was informed I would need a special GM aux cable that was $100 I think on ebay.. So perhaps the ones you posted will work..

I totally hear you on the Drive+PLay being too staticy and WAY TOO QUIET. I have found I just use my CDs unless I am going on a long vacation and need my iPod to listen to..

Sorry not sure if my answer is helpful. Keep us posted, if your $50 solution works I may buy it too! Although I have to renew my tabs which is $$ (after my repairs too.. more $$.. aww the life of a 'poor starving college kid')

I don't really get any static.  The only time I get any is when the music is paused and I have the volume hella loud.  It just bothers me that the music can't get super loud like it can with CDs.

I think I'm going to try to call the company who makes those adapter things and see if they can tell me if they'll work.

They said this should work:
http://www.amazon.com/Peripheral-PXHGM3-Audio-3-5mm-Adapter/dp/B001ZR4FPI

I'm glad I called back because the original guy told me the wrong product and I almost bought it on eBay.  He was definitely lacking in his customer service skills.  The second guy I got on the phone from pac was very helpful and fully explained how it would work.

So, considering it's only $75 for awesome audio, I guess I'm going to try it out.  I'll let you all know how it goes Smiley

Bomb diggidy!!! Yea CDs just give so much better of a range (lows and highs). Basically any FM transmitter (including mine which is wired directly. I split the fm antenna) is just  too much of a work around for it to be loud enough for a young renegade college boy like myself..

I am stoked to hear how it works.

Dude.  Grin

That was the easiest thing to install, possibly ever.  And it sounds absolutely friggin phenomenal!  I can't even believe it's the same radio!

You need to get those two things and hook them up, you will not regret it for a second!

The iSimple PXDX and the PXHGM3 wire harness.

It's seriously like magic.  Before I press the "Band" button on my radio and it goes "FM1" "FM2" "AM" then repeats.  Now it goes "FM1" "FM2" "AM" "XM 1" "XM2".  I did nothing but plug the little box that I bought in.  It's just crazy to me how that works Smiley
