: Bluetooth and Aux in

I'm curious if anyone has hooked up Bluetooth integration and aux in on one setup. Can someone post what two systems they have used that work together? I have a 2005 CTS-V.

The Aux in that I'm looking at is, Amazon.com: PAC AAIGM12 Auxiliary Audio Input Interface, For Select GM Trucks: Automotive (http://www.amazon.com/PAC-AAIGM12-Auxiliary-Interface-Select/dp/B0002J21X8) Can someone confirm this is the right product for my vehicle? I believe this is the right one but I'm not 100% sure.

Thanks in advance!

I'm looking at this right now. Of all the options, the bluetooth through onstar aren't perfect, and I've about given up on trying it after reading hundreds of pages.

I would be fine just to stream tunes from my blackberry to the head unit. To do this I ordered an Alpine EX-10 for 35 bucks. However, I definitely do not want to use FM modulation, so I'll utilize the line out on the Alpine.

--------------
As for aux in, I haven't done anything yet.

I found an auto switching aux input adapter: SpeakerCraft LL-One. Really slick for auto switching from xm to the Alpine when the Alpine starts sending a signal. I'm sure it would work, but I really want 2 aux adapters, so it is either 2 of these, or something else.

I looked at the PAC you mentioned and the VFAQ, the 12. Seems like it would work, but I haven't taken anything apart to see if the connectors are the same at the head unit is in the back. Seems like the signals would be making all kinds of laps around the car by putting it in the rear deck.

I'm up for ideas, keep me posted as to which way you go. I'd PM you, but I guess I can't, yet.

Here are some methods for aux in:

Here is my writeup on installing a parrot music kit:

http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/cadillac-cts-first-generation-forum-2003/148992-parrot-mk6100-install-bluetooth-handsfree-music.html

The mk6100 does not have an aux in per se, but it does have bluetooth handsfree, and bluetooth streaming audio. The new mk9100 kit should install the same, and DOES have an aux input, as well as ipod connectivity.

Jimmy,

Silly follow up question on the stock bose wiring. Is the ISO connector tapped for the parrot the radio's line level output signal? So, does the built in amp have the front/rear fader built in, then, because I only see a front left and front right listed?

This would make things much simpler for my install. I would install the line switcher in the main radio outs instead of into the XM input. That way I could utilize the alpine's call interrupt. I'll need to read up on the manuals more.

Are all the wiring schemes posted somewhere for each year V or do I need to buy the service manuals?

Thanks,

PJ Gross

sorry, I was out of town.

I am not entirely sure of the line level of the parrot's output. I had the CK1000 in my V going into the onstar inputs on the amp for a while, and the volume was just fine. Then I switched things around, and spliced them into the front left and front center speaker leads after the amp. That was quite loud indeed. Just the opposite of what I would have expected. Which I cannot explain.

On my CTS, I had the MK6100 spliced in between the radio and amp, which according to the manuals, is low-level audio. The MK6100 has two ouputs: speaker level and line level. I was definitely using the speaker level outputs, and the volume was just fine. With the parrots volume set at approx 3/4, it matched up with radio and CD volume levels. I never tried the line level outputs on the MK.

As for the wiring schemes, Reed has a pretty thorough (though likely not complete) collection of schematics at the faq:

The Galaxy 1000 should work fine with the aux in being used, in fact we are developing our own input for use with the Galaxy. It will be seperate as the Galaxy's input thru Onstar is mono.

Interesting. How are you going to get music quality output to the amp? Or is that proprietary info ;)
