Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Works as it is supposed to. You will need to program over the internet for your particular application, but that is very easy. Wiring instructions are vague at best, but after having the same issue with other products on my order (back up camera reverse sensing), now I get that the reverse leads on this, the head unit, and any other device that needs reverse, parking brake, or speed sensor needs to have those hooked up to the vehicles harness somehow. I misunderstood and thought this device would pass that along to the head unit, it does not. It does, however, keep the accessories on until a vehicle door is opened to shut those things off like the factory. All dings, chimes, etc. are still heard. This makes for a nice seamless upgrade from factory stereos.

Pros: Works like it should, easy to wire and program

Cons: Vague wiring instructions

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The interface does its job. Chimes still chime and the aftermarket radio sounds great in my son's Equinox. I found the instructions adequate and had the thing wired up and ready to install in just minutes.

Pros: Easy to wire up and install. Keep factory chimes working with aftermarket radio.

Cons: Just a shame that Chevy requires use of this kind of product.

Great sales knowledge

Features

Vehicle Compatibility: The Axxess Integrate LC-GMRC-05 is designed for use in select Chevrolet & Pontiac vehicles with amplified or non-amplified factory audio systems.

Make Model Year
Chevrolet Equinox 2005-2006
Pontiac Torrent 2005-2006

Retained Features: The LC-GMRC-05 provides +12V/10A accessory output, retains warning chimes, and retains R.A.P. (retained accessory power).

  • +12V/10A Accessory Output: In many Chevrolet vehicles, there is no 12-volt accessory wire in the factory harness, which requires the installer to run an accessory wire to the fuse box or underneath the steering column when installing an aftermarket radio. The LC-GMRC-05 is designed to provide a 12V/10A switched accessory output (red wire).
  • Warning Chimes: The LC-GMRC-05 retains factory warning chimes through onboard speaker.
  • Retained Accessory Power (R.A.P.):  The ignition power source of most Chevrolet vehicles keeps the radio on until one of the doors is opened. This feature is called the R.A.P. (retained accessory power). The LC-GMRC-05 is designed to retain this feature.
Note: The LC-GMRC-05 does not retain OnStar.

Wiring Harness: The wiring harness has a black 12-pin connector on one end and a blue 24-pin molex connector on the other end. The 12-pin connector plugs into the LC-GMRC-05, while the 24-pin molex connector interfaces with the existing factory plug. The included wiring harness also includes 12 bare wires that will need to be hardwired to your new aftermarket radio's harness.
