Does the job!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The unit works as it is supposed to. I note no issues with the noise that the previous reviewer had. My Ipod sounds great in my Hummer. I only give the unit 4 stars as there was no discussion of the PIE AUX IN using up my XM preset #1, but it does. Also the interface through the radio is a little quirky but with a little user patience, it is fine.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

On my 2007 Buick Terraza it would not interface with the factory stero. Crutchfield was great about it and issued a return goods authorization right away. Crutchfiled was great P.I.E. not so much!



Great idea - failed execution

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Conceptually, this is a great idea. Unit plugs into the XM port or in my case in between Radio and XM unit. Two cable plugs and install is done. Setup, easy as pie.

Only problem is that the unit picks up some sort of interference. There's a cyclical buzz that exists whether the engine is running or not. When the engine is running, there's a tremendous amount of EMF noise that's introduced, and increases with the engine RPM.

I've talked to the PIE reps and their tech people were nice, but couldn't offer a solution.

Crutchfield is great and replaced the unit, with the same result. Not sure what I'll do now. I need my iPod in this truck! 2005 Tahoe LT, Nav, CD, DVD, XM
