Per one of the folks at Bowling Green, GM is coming out with an iPod-type adapter that will work in the XLR; it will probably debut sometime in the spring of 2008. I also ahve seen the "AUX" input button and have wondered where, but not wondered enough to actually look for anything.

If you do a search on ipod you can find what you are looking for. However, I've done it for you.

The ones from GMGEEK don't work well.
I have two different ones from him and they don't work that well.
He will not answer any email any more.
If you want one of these to try let me know and we can make a deal. They cost over two hundred dollars so make your best offer....

I don't have any experience with the ones from GMGEEK, but the one from
http://www.coastaletech.com works great for me in a 2006 XLR. (Picture attached of my iPhone playing nice with the XLR)

Just like most of the ones you find, it plugs in to the XM harness right before the XM receiver.

The box that you buy has 2 inputs. One is an iPod dock connector and one set of left/right RCAs. If you look at the picture at http://www.coastaletech.com/iPHONE%20INTERFACE.htm you can see the RCA connectors.

XM1 = iPod
XM2 = RCA Inputs

Now, if you really just want audio forced thru the XM with no iPod control, you can splice in to the XM harness http://forums.corvetteforum.com/show....php?t=1748480

Liked what I saw from yor post, so Iordered one yesterday. It wasn't real clear--do you get all the cable for complete hookup?

Please drop them an email and tell them that you are installing it to an XLR. They sent out a class 3 cable with mine and the XLR is a class 2 system. Depending on where you clicked on their website it sends you a different harness.

You get the little black box, XM wire harness and the iPod Dock Connector.

You DO NOT get a way to hook up the AUX RCA inputs. You need to supply your own cable to get from the RCAs on the box to your MP3/Audio device. Shouldn't be more than $10 from Radio Shack.

Let me know if you have any questions !

I was wondering how they showed that on a new GM LAN radio and were also using it on the XLR. The XLR has a quite confusing data bus setup with both Class 2 and GM LAN systems.

Yup, the same box works on both buses. There is a dip switch that you set to indicate which bus you are on.

PIE makes a very good IPOD Integration setup which mounts and connect in the opening behind your console. We have installed several of these units in customer cars and had no complaints. Hope this helps

Got the unit yesterday afternoon and installed it in a matter of minutes (checked everything out before getting it so I was familiar with where it was at.) Unit works great!!

Thanks for all your info,

I'm not sure if you're referring to the unit from coastalelectronics or the PIE unit. My XML subscription runs out soon, and since I'm not impressed by the reception, I'd rather have my iPod. thanks
