OK, I've had this thing a week or so. Bought it for my wife to use in her Yukon Denali. Issue is with the iPhone. The iPhone is querky with this unit and my wife has 0 patience for stuff like this. The first time it doesn't pair, she's calling me to come fix it.
So, I pulled it out of her car and put it in mine...ISSUE. I'm running an aftermarket deck and because of this, it doesn't function correctly. Onstar used to work flawlessly, but this doesn't.

When it was installed in my wife's car and paired to my BB Curve, it worked perfectly, but I'm not driving her car everyday.:bawl:

Install is fairly easy, simply disconnect 2 connectors from the back of the Onstar unit and plug them into this unit. This unit uses the stock Onstar mic and the speakers in your radio, so there's no other wires to run.

So, it's up for sale. I paid $280 plus shipping. How about $150 shipped to the lower 48 (everybody else, please contact me and I'm sure we can work something out).

This unit is compatible with:
Cadillac
o Escalade/ESV/EXT 2007-2008
o SRX 2007-2008
• Chevrolet
o Avalanche 2007-2008
o Impala 2006-2007
o Monte Carlo 2006-2008
o Silverado (new body) 2007-2008
o Suburban 2007-2008
o Tahoe 2007-2008
• GMC
o Acadia 2007-2008
o Sierra (new Body) 2007-2008
o Yukon 2007-2008
o Yukon Denali 2007-2008
• Hummer
o H2 2008
• Saturn
o Outlook 2007-2008

Thanks Matt. I was fore warned with the iPhone deal, but I still thought I would be able to run it in my truck...no luck for me.

So did Jerry over on DT ever get it to work with his iphone in his YDXL? And what did you find that suits your needs better?

He says he's gotten it to work "for the most part." That, unfortunately, doesn't cut it with my wife.

For Me:
Alpine now has a BT add on (400BT) that they built in conjunction with Parrot that's supposedly leaps and bounds better than their previous models. Since I have the Alpine W505, this fits my needs better.

For my wife: Not sure yet. Thinking a Jawbone now...
