Question for those with aftermarket headunits...

904 Views 5 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  MP81
I'm going to be installing an aftermarket headunit in my Cruze. I don't use most of my factory features. I do use Siriusxm but I know I'll need a reciever for that.

1. Onstar is ending at the end of the year.
2. I don't use my steering wheel audio controls.
3. I don't really care about warning chimes.
4. I never use retained accessory power.

Do I need a wiring kit given these facts?

You should be able to get significantly cheaper ones if you don't want to retain On-Star - Crutchfield lists a number of them.

But I mean, IMO $200 is worthwhile to lose zero functionality - it's why we still have the stock 7" MyLink unit, because I want Android Auto but have zero appetite to remove the CD player functionality.
CD Player!? I haven't used one of those since 2008. I don't want to loose Onstar but the 2G sunset happens the end of the year so, according to Onstar it will become a phone app.
