Durable, Versatile, Audio Quality, Easy To Install, Easy To Use
This was installed in a 2006 GMC Yukon Denali w/ Sat Nav, 6-Disc Changed, XM, and Rear-DVD. With this setup, there really was no other adapter that would work in my vehicle. Installation was rather basic. Just hardwire to battery for power, ground to kick panel (fuse box), and plug in the pig-tail adapter to your XM/Changer port. You wont' loose XM or CD-Changer functionality. I mention this because the "old" instructions included with the unit were wrong. [...]. Since I already have all the factory options, the way you access this device is "unique." Select XM, press Seek Up 3 times, then down once. This will enable the Aux input device. To leave this mode, simply press Seek Up once, then down once. Since these controls are on the steering wheel, it's easy enough to do. I have noticed that sometimes you have to press the Seek up/down sequence 1 or 2 times before it will engage. Also, when turning the vehicle on/off, it does normally stay in the same mode you left it in. But sometimes, it does go back to the XM mode. Very minor issues though. I have this connected to my Creative Vision M, Mp3 Player, and the audio quality is great. No static or noise - sounds just as good as if I connected it to the A/V input for my rear-dvd player. Also note that if you don't have all the aux devices, you can still use this device. You just won't likely need to use the "Seek" method to access your device. Overall, while the device isn't quite "perfect," (few things are), I consider this unit highly recommended.
