Title: Replacing Stock Radio
Post by: Streetshark23 on July 30, 2018, 09:49:26 AM
Hello everyone!

Just bought my '01 Aztek GT about 2 weeks ago. it has about 111,000 km (69,000 miles), not AWD. I've been reading up on many things here and definitely learning more on the vehicle. I have noticed a lot of links are broken though, as a lot of threads are multi-years old.

Anyways, I want to swap out the factory radio for an Atoto radio and add a reverse camera. I don't have Onstar. I do have the rear speakers with the radio controls in the trunk, also have the steering wheel radio controls. I am hoping to have the camera come on when the vehicle is in reverse, not sure if there will be any additional wiring for that. I just want to be 100% sure that what I'm planning on purchasing is going to be compatible with my vehicle so any input is welcome! Links are below, I'm canadian, so links are to amazon canada.

Atoto Radio, has a lot of neat features and can connect to my phone via bluetooth. Basically a tablet in the dash. I read somewhere that a bracket will need to be removed to have the double din size radio fit in the dash. (

PAC RP5-GM11 Radio wire harness. Says it will retain OnStar, but I don't have it. I'm assuming this is a non-issue. (

Double Din Dash Kit. Hopefully this will make it look planned and purposeful. (

Rear-view camera. I'm less worried about this, since it's the same brand as the radio. I'm planning on hardwiring it (not wireless). Small discount as well on amazon when purchased with the radio. (

I'm also new to vehicle modding, so any tips and tricks are welcome too. Thanks everyone!

I am not the one to ask on these, as I have never modified a stereo in a GM vehicle other than to add bluetooth. I do know there is another module you have to get. Something that deals with the retaining of chimes. Door chimes, turn signal chime, warning chimes. But I am not sure if that was included in the on-star module or not.
