    I see alot of folks adding NAV to their non NAV cars... GM should start considering selling NAV upgrade packages for you guys and make everyone's life alot easier. It's a win win situation for everyone. This seems long overdue.

    Rudeboi do you remember what wires you shielded to get those working?
    Ok for door chimes and signal sounds, you need to connect the front speakers to amp x2 connector and not x1. Please check earlier post regrading that.

    grsychckn, did you end up getting the HDD unit? Curious of the cost, I have only the AUX connection and no Bluetooth so I'm trying to upgrade the things that are the easiest.

    Thanks

    you will have to get the parts from ebay or a wreck yard. I recommend a wreck yard as you would need the wiring. Go through the entire thread and it should help you out. It is a very long, frustrating process but worth it at the end.

    This may have already been shown but its my first post and I just came across this product. It runs $1,000 less than the Prodigy and still retains all the factory features.

    Yes please, I need to know which wire colors are on the sub

    ----------

    Hey vert can also take a pick of the wires on the amp and post it. I also asked for that awhile now. I still don't get high mid's.

    The rear most wire is black/red and the one closest to the rear seats are black/green. Sorry bout the pics, I got caught up in other things. I'll take some pic's tomorrow since I have the trunk apart. I think I have the opposite prob as what you have. I get the mids but my highs suck. On our models, the front door and dash speakers are wired in parallel and share the same signal. My fronts are still wired to X1 at the amp. I take it that yours are wired to X2? I don't have door chimes, turn signals, or voice guidance. My plan was to run a pair of wires down each side of the car. I would cut and splice one of the tan and gray wires at X200 (left dash bolts access panel) and one of the L. green and d. green wires at X225 (right dash bolts access panel). These two connectors are where the front speakers connect to the main body harness. The other ends of my new wires will go to X2. My front dash speakers should get there own signals and hopefully solve my door chime and turn signal problem. hope this helps.

    That is correct. Mine is setup that way to x2. I will be doing the something and separate the front speak from door speakers. I changed my sub out because it couldn't handle the amp.

    Rudeboy,


    this is how they look as of today. Ill be adding four new circuits to x2 for the front dash speakers. Front door speakers will stay in x1. I'm also thinking of adding some 5.25" speakers in the rear shelf since mine didn't come with them. What kind of sub did you use?
