Our take on the P.I.E Aux Input Adapter For GM 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 GM12-AUXv2 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 connect the power and ground leads, plug the 12-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.
