We installed a Sony XAV-AX1000 Apple CarPlay head unit on this 2005 Pontiac Grand Prix. We like the simplicity of this head unit and the rotary volume knob, the matte plastic look blends in nicely on these older vehicles that typically had generous use of hard black plastics on their interiors. Not only does this head unit add Bluetooth, Aux, and USB connectivity, you also get Apple CarPlay. This means that iPhone users can plug in their phone for greater control of their messaging, music, and navigation apps!
In addition to the added connectivity, we installed a license plate frame mounted backup camera for this car. This is a large full-sized sedan, and a rear view camera is certainly worth the investment, especially for younger drivers. As with any 2000's GM vehicle, a chime retention module and data module is required for proper operation of the vehicle's factory electronics. An On-Star retention module is not necessary if you are like the majority of customers that do not actually use that system.
