Have you looked at wired FM modulators. This device inserts the aux. signal into the antenna coax. It's not a wireless modulator that's subject to interference of strong FM radio signals. I'm using one in my 03 Envoy and while not ideal, the sound quality is acceptable. Do a web search using "wired fm modulator" . You'll get more info.
Does your radio have the XM module? I've read of a means to "tap" into some of it's features and install an aux. input.

Thank you n7don_srx, I have checked on web, FM modulator may work.
coz I'm currently live abroad, I have to buy the 100% right stuff for my SRX on internet and ship it internationally to here
Do you have any recommendation?

I'm using this one shown on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Audiovox-FM100A-Modulator-Isolation-Transformer/dp/B0001KO7UI
but can't say it's better than others. I found on ebay for about $30 and rating was good.
BUT several things you need to know....
1. These adapters need a switched 12v source if you want to listen to regular FM radio. In other words they are powered. Apply power and the radio signal is supplied thru the aux. jack. No power and the signal is supplied thru the car's antenna.
2. GM uses a non-standard coax connector. You will need something like these shown on ebay to interface between the device and your radio

3. Thirdly many of the adapters output is via a left and right coax with RCA jacks. You want a 3.5 mm aux jack so you may need an adapter for that. I did on my Envoy setup. This is what I'm talking about: http://www.ebay.com/itm/2-x-3-5mm-Female-Audio-Stereo-Jack-To-2-RCA-Male-Cable-Adapter-/330854893042?pt=US_Audio_Cables_Adapters&hash=item4d087d05f2

Crutchfield is a mail order company that sells car audio componets. Here's a link to one of their products that may be helpful

If you were to contact them with your needs they could recommend the components needed. They may ship internationally.

I should say the links I provided are to give illustrations of the components I needed. I have no knowledge of the reputability of the vendors selling the products.

I understand living outside the US you wouldn't have XM radio but does your vehicle have the XM module? If so this artice may be of interest: http://gmtnation.com/f93/$3-00-aux-input-via-xm-interface-1722/

My car doesnt have XM equipped...sigh
I have called the auto shop, and the staff said the sound quality of wired FM modulator is a bit lack...but it seems the only option for my car now....
I guess there is another option that getting my SRX radio with XM ready first and then buy USA-SPEC PA11, but Im not sure if it works and it's gonna cost me too much money and not worth

BB,

Have you looked into GROM audio, Google, they have many listed on ebay? This was the system I was going to install before I installed the USA spec unit. They don't have an 06 srx listed however 07 is listed not sure if there are much difference's. It has usb, Bluetooth add on etc. I think this is your best option and you can simply use a USB stick.

Good luck
