Precision Interface Electronics GM9-AUX
Connect a portable music player, satellite radio tuner, or DVD player to your factory GM receiver!
Our take on the Precision Interface Electronics GM9-AUX by Crutchfield's Tim Sprinkle
Got a portable music player? Then you probably know that a direct connection to your vehicle's radio will give you the best possible sound quality. The Precision Interface Electronics GM9-AUX adapter lets you convert the CD changer port on your General Motors factory stereo into an auxiliary input, suitable for connecting an add-on satellite radio tuner, portable music player, or other audio source.
Just plug the 9-pin data connector on the adapter cable into the factory radio's changer port, connect your portable player to the adapter's RCA inputs, press "CD" on the radio, and go! This adapter uses the CD changer port once connected, you can't use a changer with your factory radio. Warranty: 90 days.

I used this interface in my 2000 Camaro with Monsoon single cd stereo to plug in my IRiver H10 mp3 player. It was extremely easy to install and it works just as advertised. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 was how much it cost for how simple it is.

Precision Interface Electronics GM9-AUX Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Overview: DPXTM Auxiliary input converters by PIE (Precision Interface Electronics) are designed to convert the CD Changer port of the OEM radio (with CD Changer controls) into an auxiliary input. Devices such as Satellite Radios, DVD Players, VCRs, MP3 Players, and Game Systems can be added the the OEM radio without an FM Modulator. DPXTM Technology maintains full function of all factory steering wheel and rear seat controls.
Compatibility: The GM9-AUX allows you to add an auxiliary input to the factory radio in select General Motors vehicles. The adapter plugs into the factory system using the supplied cable, avoiding wire splicing and modifications.
Note: In most cases the adapter takes the place of the CD changer or in-dash slave unit, so you cannot have a CD changer and the aux input adapter connected to your factory radio at the same time.
Mounting: The adapter can be secured to any flat surface.
Connections: The adapter has two RCA (left and right audio) inputs on one side. On the other side of the adapter is a rectangular 10-pin jack that interfaces with the supplied cable. The adapter end of the cable has the 10-pin plug and the other end has a 9-pin plug which plugs into the factory radio. If there is already a harness plugged into this 9-pin jack on the OEM radio (CD Changer/Data connector), the cable included with the GM9-AUX has a plug to accept this harness (this pass through connection allows full On-Star function but in most cases does not allow for CD Changer function).
