Hi from the UK.
I'm an installation engineer in the UK and I have a customer with a 2006 CTS who wants to replace the stock system with a double din kenwood unit that has built in NAVI, BLUETOOTH, DAB+ etc.
I've managed to get hold of the facia kit and the steering control adapter but am
Struggling to find an adapter lead for radio power etc so am looking for a bit of help on this please?

Paul

I believe this is what you are missing:

PAC OS-2C-CTS
http://www.pac-audio.com/productDetails.aspx?ProductId=1013

Just keep in mind that the customer will lose being able to change certain settings for the car after you do this because the original radio unit also manages settings for the driver and vehicle information such as MPG, oil life trans fluid life trip computers ...etc

Thanks, I think I read in a post that you could keep this if function if you splice into the original harness and alter the ACC feed to ignition?

The radio itself is what controls those presets and displays those information about the vehicle. The only way to install and aftermarket receiver and maintain that screen and it's buttons is to hack the head unit.

Like here:

That's what I would do, that's actually the only option I would consider, because I don't think loosing the DIC preset functions is worth it.

I'll be doing this within a year or so once I decide on some Android based navigation unit then I will buy a junkyard radio to experiment on with cutting and what not.
