Thinking about pulling the stock Bose unit from my 2008 Trailblazer and putting in a deck that would let me USB power an iPhone4.
The biggest problems as I see them:
-Stock unit is 2 levels, over and under, most aftermarkets are 1 level
-Stock unit is tied to the Bluetooth, Onstar and Steering column controls
I don't care about losing the Onstar, and could use the bluetooth in the new unit easy enough, but I'd like to keep the controls active for at least the radio, would be great if they could control at least pausing and skipping back and forth songs in a playlist on the iPhone too.
And i guess they make faceplates that center the single levels in between what were the two existing ones, right?
I'd actually prefer to have this done at a specialty audio shop but would want to know my options for those two problems before going in. I'm handy enough to be able to pull PCs apart and swap components around but I've never pulled a dash apart and put it back together so it might be beyond my skills to do this myself.
Any thoughts? Thanks for any advice!
