I have a 2011 Sierra crew. It has the cd/mp3 radio with usb port. I can use the ipod cable that comes with the ipod and control it through the radio. My question is, is there a way to splice into or "t" off the usb port from the back side of the dash so the ipod cable isn't out in the open?

Well, you could probably find an aftermarket module that would provide a USB port from the rear. However, you would lose the ability to control the ipod from the radio. The USB intergration is all internal to the radio itself. II'm not sure if the newer GMT900's include an auxiliary USB cable to the golve box but you can check, but I'm not sure, just giving you somewhere to check.

I have an aftermarket radio with front side USB. My solution was to buy a black IPOD usb cable, and run the cable on the edge of the dash and stuff my ipod in the glove box.

GM sells a cheap alternative that allows you to play and control your iPod through the head unit controls. Look on gmcaccessories it's called the PAL accessory and is about $59 if I remember correctly. I couldn't add it since I have the nav.

Thank you. I looked at the suggestions that were given. I am not familiar with the new stuff out, I have some more questions. I have bluetooth in the truck also will these kits still allow that feature to work. I do have and use the xm radio so I would like that to remain. I looked at the info on the pac audio site and am confused. Any more input would be greatly appreciated.
