    Hi all, have been away a while because a ladder I was working on fell out from under me and I shattered both legs. It has been a long haul, but I'm finally back to about 75% and got the word from the Doc today that I can start walking! Yahoo.

    I am getting an '09 Silverado, 2500HD LT/LT1 package. It has the normal stereo/cd player in it, and I am interested in replacing it with a double din unit with navigation. I see some stock GM units advertised on Ebay, but I also like the new Pioneers/Premiums that have just come out.

    The new truck has: XM, Bluetooth, Non-Bose, Onstar. How difficult would it be to:

    1. Put in the factory unit?
    2. Install the Pioneer AVIC1100-BT, can be found here

    It feels good to be back!! And thanks GMTRUCKCLUB for the birthday wishes.:party:

    I have a 08 2500 hd and i had an Eclipse nav unit installed with blue tooth and the wirining harness so that the onstar works through the head unit. The nav system is connected to 2 headrest for the kids in the rear. It looks great and got a great deal from crutchfield.

    Those are aftermarket headrest and there is one cable the runs down one of the posts in the headrest and then the cable run down the inside of the seats to a connector to the headunit. Everything was installed at a local car audio shop.
