1995 SL2
2005 VUE 2.2L
Default 2005 Vue with CD/MP3/XM Radio - Looking for iPod Solution

Greetings all,

I am going to be upgrading my single DIN radio to the Dual DIN CD/MP3/XM Radio (Model #22734832). I have been using an FM transmitter from our old 96 SW2, but I would REALLY like to use the Direct input / XM input method for our iPod. Does anybody have any good suggestions as to what product to use for the iPod / XM input?

ANY suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Thanks

Scott

BTW..does the BCM have to be reprogrammed to support this new dual DIN radio?

I didn't know Dual made a radio with sat radio. I know they have an "aux" port for a plug-n-play unit. But check www.crutchfield.com They have everything you will need.You can even get the installation kit and wiring harness adaptor for free. Been using them for years and never had a problem. Just input your cars info and they will tell you what fits and even give you a discount with the more you buy.

Here is a pic of the unit that I bought...

It supports AM/FM/CD/MP3 and XM (the Aux and CAT button support the XM radio)

Oh, so you have the factory Saturn radio. I think that you may need to find the factory XM tuner and wiring harness. But, I could be wrong.

OK..I think I have found 2 solutions available. This will work in any 2005-2008 Vue with XM capable radio

Soundgate GMPD4
Precision Interface Electronics - GM2LPOD/S

Both of these products look identical and the instructions procedures are almost the same, but it looks like the Soundgate product is about $20 cheaper
