I want to install my avic z110bt that was originally in my Tundra. I sold the Tundra without the avic and installed it in my new HHR after getting the Lan 3 and metra kit from Crutchfield. I could not get the xm or for that matter am or fm to work. Called Metra and got 4 different versions on which wires to use, all incorrect info. Removed the avic and reinstalled the factory radio.
I want to install this avic into my Solstice Coupe. Do I need a Lan 4 or will the Lan 3 work. The coupe is a gxp with onstar. I truely believe that Metra's techs dont know their asses from their elbows and are total smucks!!
The question is, can I use the original xm antenna on the coupe? Can I use the GM xm receiver or do I need the pioneer xm receiver? i have the chrysler antenna adaptor already for the gm antenna lead. I guess what I am trying to say here is.....can I use the avic z110bt in the coupe, without loosing my marbles trying to install it.
GMOS-LAN-03 or GMOS-LAN-04 depends on on Monsoon (4) or no monsoon (3). Does your coupe have the monsoon upgrade? Do you plan to keep it? Are you going to install an aftermarket amplifer? Both the 3 and 4 will keep the onstar working.
You need to use the pioneer xm receiver. You may still be able to use the GM antennae, but the connector will most likely need to be altered. As an alternative you can hide the pioneer xm antennae in the waterfall like I did to keep it hidden and just leave the rear antennae where it is without problems. FYI the XM interface is much better than the sirius interface, if you have the option go with XM.

I have to check to see if the radio does have the upgrade, not sure at the moment. I assume that would be on the window sticker label. I am using xm and do have the pioneer xm receiver. For some reason, this radio would not work in the HHR which didnt have a Pioneer from the factory, though it is an option for the HHR. As far as wiring goes, I have installed quite a few of these nav units in my cars in past years and all worked correctly. If I do have a Monsoon radio, then I will have to exchange the 3 for a 4 which Crutchfield said would be no problem doing. Reading previous posts on this thread, I do know I wired up the illumination wire wrong. But I was following instructions from one of Metro's techs, which is just one more thing they were wrong about.
Whether the vehicle is amplified or non-amplified, equipped with satellite radio, Onstar, Bluetooth, or steering wheel controls, the GMOS-100 can retain it. All the warning chimes and convenience features are retained that are normally lost when the OEM radio is removed.
So regardless of the extra features, the configuration you have, or what you want to install, this all in one unit can serve all your needs. Plus this unit cost only $150-175.. So you will save money compared to purchasing the 3 separate units which cost around $50-100 each! Plus since it's a single control box, it is much easier and less confusing to install since you don't have to find a place to hide and wire 2 or 3 separate control boxes in our limited space.
Also for those who use Nav/VSS systems and find it a nightmare/inconvenient to install...
The GMOS-100 also provides a 12 volt 10 amp accessory output and outputs to help install a navigation radio which include VSS, Parking Brake, and Reverse.
P.S. From the wording in the Manual, it may seem like you still need to purchase a wiring harness specific to your vehicle, however, they are all included in the set.
Thanks Sly Bob,
Nice images that your son did. My issue is that I cannot access teh OEM Image directory. It shows me an OEM Setup tab, but it's greyed out (not active). I did post on Kenwood forum, so am hoping for an answer there.
Thought I'd share some pics of an audio install I'm in the middle of. So far, I've spent well over a week on it, several hours a day, and still not done. But I'm slow, so there's that.
headunit- Kenwood DDX9906XR
amps: Kenwood Excelon 5 channel, 4 channel, and a cheap Soundstream...
I found the listing on eBay it says for a 2.4 Solstice or Sky, I wrote them and it will work on any Kappa or Pontiac G6, direct bolt on. It puts out 173 amps at 800 rpm, our stock alternator on the 2.0 only puts out 140 at max (around 4000 rpms) I think you could run a small city off this thing...
Is there anyway of checking out the ONStar mic other than subbing from OnStar or removing the A Pillar to inspect .I have an 07 Sol with priemium radio ONstar in mirror.If I press the button on the steering wheel ,the radio muts but can not give any voice commands.I have not turned on OnStar...
So I installed LED's everywhere in the car; the headlights, fog lights, tail lights, license plate lights, back up lights, trunk light, and the 2 rearview mirror lights. After having the lights all converted for about a month and a half I happened to be walking through my garage over the weekend...
I got my low mileage 2006 Solstice about a month ago. I cannot reset the clock or program (set) stations on the pushbuttons.
Is there a connector between the radio and the display that would cause this if it had one or more bad contacts in it?
