Works with the Maestro module

The package includes connectors that plug in between the Maestro module, your factory radio's wiring plugs, and the serial port on your new car stereo (if present). You'll have to solder or splice together this harness's power/ground, illumination, and speaker wires to the corresponding wires on your aftermarket receiver's wiring harness.

Installation note: The HRN-RR-GM2 adapter must be used with the iDatalink Maestro ADS-MRR module to connect a new car stereo to your General Motors vehicle.

Works in 2011 Cruze

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I purchased this for my 2011 Chevy Cruze. It connects the Maestro RR into my car and exposes many car features to my radio including parking assist.

Pros: * Works in 2011 Chevy Cruze

Cons: * You'll notice that the green, purple, gray, and white speaker pairs have some sort of capacitors attached inline. I had to bypass them because they were stealing signal from the head unit...

Does not work for my vehicle. The first rep I spoke with got it WRONG! After speaking with another rep, he suggested different modules and they were compatible and worked beautifully.

For the most part this was a great kit. I love the plug n play adapters that make stereo installation a snap these days. Using this with the maestro rr made it a snap!!! The reason I had to give it four stars is it is not complete for these model GM's. It is missing the USB port adapter and it should mention you will need a gps antenna adapter depending on your model stereo.

Great product

Pros: Plug and play install after programming which was very easy

Cons: Highly suggest letting Crutchfield build the harness, it is slightly overwhelming with the amount of harnesses for a newer GM vehicle.

Very easy installation!

Joe from Chicago, IL on 7/24/2017

2014 Chevrolet Malibu

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

Pretty much plug and play for installing an Idatalink Maestro RR for a Pioneer 4200NEX in a 2014 Chevy Malibu eco. It was simple to install, the Maestro kept ALL of the factory functions plus added gauges. My old harness wouldn't keep the factory steering wheel controls, Bluetooth, or Onstar. This was a very easy install. I'm happy Idatalink finally came out with firmware for more GM cars instead of just vans and trucks.

Pros: Mostly plug and play for the Idatalink Maestro

Cons: Not one!

Does the factory warning chime work after applying this product?
[ Ali  Jul 15, 2017 ]
2 answers
A
This interface harness provides an external speaker that chimes sound through. My specific radio allows adjustments via the Maestro RR to increase/decrease the volume of the chimes. The chimes that I hear out of the speaker include the normal door chimes, park assist, and turn signaling.

You will want to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your factory system. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and see if this will integrate. If it does not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you.
