I nearly pulled the trigger on the super cheapo walmart unit, but shy'd away based on not being sure what steering wheel control interface I need. Anyone got an idea on what would work with that elcheapo HU?

I have an iSimple in my Enclave and love it, may go this route....http://www.pac-audio.com/productDeta...&CategoryID=36
even though it is an FM based module.

the sony was for my truck. but for my dd, ive always had clarions, i think the alpines are overpriced for what you get but 399 for the clarion pro 845mp i think that had the internal memory when that was first coming out, now i got a new one that has all kinds of better stuff, bluetooth, usb, aux inputs, etc for half the money. it sounds just as good too and has 4v outputs instead of 2v

Sorry about those links not working, I guess you have to have the vehicle chosen so it is in your browsers cache, I did not think about that.

The products I tried to link you to would work, but the price ranges from 50.00 to 130.00
If you go to that site, select your vehicle, and search for the following you should find the products.
I will say that the more expensive option would be one I'd only choose if I really wanted to keep the factory radio in there, as for a little more you could get a decent DD deck to out in there with the capabilities you need.
Of course you would need an in dash receiver harness, a wiring harness, an antenna adapter, and a steering wheel audio control adapter if you want to retain steering wheel audio controls, if you go with an aftermarket head unit.
All of those items come to around 110.00 depending on where you get them from, that figure is based on crutchfield.com prices.




Neo Auxin AUXISFM31V6 - 49.99

The Neo Auxin AUXISFM31V6 connects any iPod, Zune, Zen, Blackberry or portable media player to any car stereo quickly and easily. This high-quality adapter broadcasts your devices music directly to your factory radio through your FM frequency. iSimple Solutions are a known leader in high quality audio products, and guarantees the best quality FM Signal Possible.

This connection is wireless and does not require the user to connect their iPod/iPhone to the vehicle in any other way. In addition to working in vehicles this adapter can be used to send audio to any FM radio such as home, boat, RV, or even gym.

---------------------------------------



Neo FM Modulator PODFMPROV1 - 129.99

Hardwired FM modulator. Plugs into the antenna port on the factory radio. For some vehicles an antenna adapter is required. For radios with the RDS function, text will be displayed.

5v Charging


All new iPod/iPhones require 5v charging for power. Many accessories do not offer 5v charging and will only charge first generation iPhones and very old iPods. Our product allows you to jam out while driving and then arrive at your destination with a fully charged device.
Text Display(on supported radios)


This adapter will clearly display artist and song information on your factory radio'* digital display. Radio must be capable of displaying text information. This allows a safer driving experience as the radio display is designed to be safely viewed by the driver.

For $20 more you could get a decent Alpine radio with Aux input, USB, and your speakers are going to sound much better. The problem with "el cheapo" headunits is they way over estimate the wattage and can't drive your speakers properly.

installed this last night, very clear, little lazy with trebble, but all and all sounds great! Had to make a trip to walmart to get the correct ant adapters, but other than that was a quick easy install.

Will post up pics of finished product, didn't take any of the install it self.
