Perfect F.I.T. Installation Packages: The Alpine in-dash
navigation receivers with an 8" LCD touchscreen will not fit a standard
Single-DIN or Double-DIN dash opening. To accommodate this large screen in your
vehicle's dash, Alpine offers a line of Perfect Factory Integration Technology (F.I.T.)
packages specifically for these receivers. Alpine's Perfect F.I.T. installation
packages allow the Alpine navigation receiver with 8" LCD touchscreen to fit
seamlessly into select vehicle dashes. Perfect F.I.T. is designed to
cosmetically match the shape, color and texture of the vehicle's interior.
Compatibility: The Alpine KTX-GM8-O Perfect F.I.T.
Installation Package allows seamless integration of the Alpine 8" LCD touchscreen
navigation head unit in select 2007-up GMC Trucks/SUVs with OnStar
(with or without Bose). Not compatible with Premium Bose systems (Y91/Y92/Z75),
Fleet trucks, or upper-dash OEM stereo locations. This Perfect F.I.T.
Installation Package will not retain factory Bluetooth functionality or factory
SiriusXM satellite radio tuners.

Note: As always, please consult Crutchfield's
Outfit My Car to verify fit with your vehicle.
OEM-Like Appearance: The KTX-GM8-O Perfect F.I.T.
Installation Package has been specifically fitted and engineered to fit select
2007-up GMC Trucks/SUVs perfectly. It comes with a specially formed OEM-grade, high
quality/high strength ABS plastic radio housing that is color matched to the
dash. This allows the unit to precisely fit not only the vehicle, but also the
Alpine 8" LCD touchscreen navigation receiver. In addition, extra care is taken to match
the factory dash's shape, texture, and color ensuring a more OEM-like
appearance. Unlike traditional universal dash kits, the Alpine Perfect F.I.T.
packages include direct fit OEM-like brackets to ensure sturdy support and
accurate positioning of the radio in your vehicle's dash.
Vehicle+Radio Harness: This Perfect F.I.T. Installation
Package comes with a vehicle+radio harness for
simple installation between the Alpine 8" LCD touchscreen receiver and your 2007-up GMC Truck/SUV. You get all the
necessary harnesses and adapters in the box to install the Alpine 8" LCD touchscreen
navigation receiver in your 2007-up GMC Truck/SUV.
Note: The vehicle+radio harness contains two Molex connectors
which plug into your GMC Truck/SUV's factory radio harness. There is also an
8-pin connector which needs to plugged into either the vehicle+radio
harness' Bose or Non-Bose port (based on your vehicle). On the other end of
the harness is a 20-pin connector, 5-pin connector, and 3-pin connector
which plug into the included OnStar/Steering wheel remote interface module. On that
same end of
the harness is a 16-pin Alpine radio connector which plugs into the radio
connector port on the back of the Alpine 8" LCD touchscreen navigation receiver. In addition,
you will need to make two hardwired connections between the supplied
vehicle+radio harness and your vehicle's Parking brake (Yellow/blue) and
Foot brake (Yellow/black). There is a remote turn-on lead (Blue/white) to
connect an aftermarket amplifier.
OnStar Compatible: The included GM LAN Stereo Replacement
Interface Module (KCX-SRMGMO) allows you to keep total functionality of your GM
vehicle's OnStar system.
Steering Wheel Controls: The included GM LAN Stereo
Replacement Interface Module also lets you keep your vehicle's steering wheel
remote controls. For 2007-up GMC Trucks/SUVs with factory steering wheel audio controls, the KTX-GM8-O retains
the capability to control the Alpine 8" LCD touchscreen navigation receiver's volume,
source, and playback controls. There is no additional programming required,
simply plug & play.
Note: The 3.5mm connector of the steering wheel remote interface
cable plugs into the 3.5mm remote input of the Alpine 8" LCD touchscreen
