Poor integration and lack of clarity

Kawa from Kansas City, MO on 8/8/2017

2010 Chevrolet Equinox

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

After being assured that I will not lose any functionality in my car with the kits they recommended, The Crutchfield "technical" support person I spoke to said that they are just a retailer and not technical engineers and can only offer a product return after I spent many hours on the install.

Pros: Mostly works. The cable colors match.

Cons: Cables are bundled and labeled incorrectly. It integrates poorly with my chevy equinox. Crutchfield was not helpful and did not follow up as promised and PAC said that I should have been told that my climate control screen will no longer work.

Features

Radio Replacement Interface: The PAC RP5-GM41 interface allows an aftermarket head unit replacement of the factory navigation or non-navigation radio in select General Motors vehicles with 29-bit v2 GM-LAN databus system. Using this interface will retain factory features such as OnStar, steering wheel controls (SWC), Aux input & backup camera, Warning Chimes, as well as the factory amplifier when the original radio is removed. The RP5-GM41 also provides data bus driven outputs such as retained accessory power (RAP), vehicle speed sensor (VSS), illumination, reverse trigger, and parking brake.

Retained Features: The PAC RP5-GM41 will retain the following factory equipped features of your vehicle.

  • OnStar: This radio replacement interface is designed to retain the factory OnStar emergency services system and turn-by-turn voice prompts that would normally be lost when your factory radio is replaced by an aftermarket head unit.
  • Factory Amplifier: In vehicles with a factory amplified system, the factory amplifiers are retained. It can be used in vehicles with or without a factory amplified system.
  • Factory Aux & Camera: The PAC RP5-GM41 will retain your vehicle's factory Aux input & backup camera through your aftermarket receiver's rear Aux input and composite video camera input.
  • Retained Accessory Power (R.A.P.): The ignition power source of many GM vehicles keeps the radio on until one of the doors is opened. This feature is called the R.A.P. (retained accessory power). The RP5-GM41 will retain this feature.
  • Warning Chimes: The PAC RP5-GM41 will retain your vehicle's factory warning chimes through the included external chime module.
  • Steering Wheel Control (SWC): The PAC radio replacement interface also lets you keep your GM vehicle's factory steering wheel controls (no additional adapter required, but some hardwiring in the vehicle's dash is required). You even get to program two radio functions to each SWC button by using short press long press dual command functionality.

Navigation Outputs: The PAC radio replacement interface provides a VSS (vehicle speed sense), Parking Brake, and a Reverse Gear output to make installing an aftermarket Navigation radio simpler and less time consuming.

Vehicle Compatibility: The RadioPro4 (RP5-GM41) is compatible with select 2010-up GM vehicles fitted with a factory navigation or non-navigation radio, OnStar, and featuring the GM-LAN 29-bit v2 databus system with 44-pin connector harness.

Notes:
  • In the Cruze, Equinox, and Terrain the separate LCD screen above the factory radio will not be retained.
  • In 2010-2015 Chevy Equinox and GMC Terrain vehicles, you must use firmware version 1.2.3a.4 or higher. These same model vehicles equipped with factory navigation are not compatible.
  • In a 2015-up Chevy Trax, you must use firmware vision 1.2.3a.4 or higher.
  • In the Chevy Malibu, models with factory navigation are not compatible.

Radio Select Switch & Programmable SWC: The radio select rotary switch on the side of the interface must be adjusted to the proper radio setting before plugging the interface into the vehicle. The interface comes pre-programmed for all of the vehicle's factory SWC functions and does not require programming, unless you wish to re-assign the SWC functions to different buttons (up to two commands per button). The SWC functions can be easily programmed; see control settings and functions below. The interface retains programming even if your vehicle's battery is disconnected.

Note: The SWC harness contains a Blue/Yellow wire and a 3.5mm connector. You will only use one of the connectors, based on your type of aftermarket radio. The Blue/Yellow wire supports Kenwood, Newer JVC, OEM and Blaupunkt radios. The 3.5mm jack supports Alpine, Jensen, Older JVC, Clarion, Pioneer, Sony, Valor, and Dual radios. Not compatible with Soundstream head units.

Q
This says it doesn't support AUX, Bluetooth, or USB but the radio I want to install does support those options. However it states that it requires this harness to install so I'm confused. Will they work or not?

Hi Jimmy, thank you for your question! The PAC Harness doesn't support the retention of your factory AUX, Bluetooth, or USB connections in your car. So once your factory stereo is removed, those factory features will no longer work. Your new stereo will still now supply you with those features. Chat with an Advisor online or by phone at 1-800-324-9695 if you have any other questions!
