Hi,

In a new Colorado owner just go a used 2005 two days ago.

On the factory MP3 unit on the CD button it also states "AUX"

Does this unit have an AUX input on it?

Thank You for your replies. :D

Hey I was wondering the same thing I have the regular cd player with an AUX, didn't see any ports and I'm reluctant to take off the back to see until I get my new Headunit.

Does anyone know if there is some sort of input in the back of the stock head unit?

Thank You for your replies.

There isn't any AUX input on the rear of the HU.

You will have to buy a P.I.E. GM12 or a US-Spec PA11GM AUX input adapter to integrate an external source like an ipod or other MP3 player to the stock HU

ok, i get that but also, the head unit has a DVD logo on the screen, if you check one of the corners of the screen you will see it... is that meaning that you added a DVD player to the hu or the input on the aux channel is labeled as DVD,

:clueless I hope your just kidding lmao.

About the DVD, that is on all of these HU, some of them have dvd built in like maybe a older model tahoe, but the colorado does not come with that feature to play dvds.

I've had my head unit in and out 50 times over the past couple of months trying to get my sirius/xm player to work with the PIE converter. Mostly due to not understanding the instructions, which were written by a dyslexic yak :clueless . The center console pops on and off very easily, start at the bottom and just pull it, then two side pop and lastly a top pop, just take it slow and work it out. Same in reverse although the bottom pop is easy to bend if you lose patience.

The head unit has a 24 pin connector for all the power / speakers, and a non-standard antenna co-ax so you can't just hook in with the provided FM antenna splice (of course, thanks GM). There is an unused 12 pin right next to the 24 pin on the head unit, which the stock xm or CD changer allegedly uses. You can't buy the tail from GM because it's Decepticon technology and must be kept under top secret guard behind Hoover Dam...

The PIE claims to convert stereo RCA to something the 12-pin aux can use in the head unit. You also need constant 12v for the PIE, which I have in place due to previously putting an inverter down under there.

Right now, my PIE is not working for direct wired audio although it will work using the built in FM transmitter option... which defeats the object and reduces sound quality. I need to check the constant 12V connection and the PIE unit itself looks like it was fashioned out of spit and dreams in a North Korean work camp.

I'll talk to PIE tomorrow, see what's up with the box and post back here.
