Hi there,
I'm new here so please be gentle! ha ha

I just acquired a one-owner 2009 VUE XE 2.4 and would like to upgrade its sound system. As I recall reading, the sounds and OnStar go through the factory radio. As such, I'd like to add the factory navigation unit. I've seen them advertised but would like to know what all I'd need to make that happen. I would obviously need the factory nav unit itself, and I presume also the GPS unit, but is there anything else? Are there any other wires or antenna that I'd need?

Thanks for your time and help.

GM tends to vin lock radios, so thereís a good chance you would have to also have a dealer reprogram the vin. Honestly, Iíd go aftermarket- plenty of companies make integration units to permit installation of any aftermarket unit. Thereís no telling how much longer GM will support a unit thatís 10 years old (map updates), imho go with a CarPlay/android auto capable unit and use your phone for navigation. Youíll have the most up to date maps that way. Not to mention a lot better sound quality.
