Aftermarket radio install

3 posts in this topic

Hey guys I have a 2015 Chevy Spark LS (it currently has the basic radio and no backup camera) and I want to put in a Pioneer AVH-2330NEX Android auto head unit and I wanted to know if you are able to maintain use of the microphone that's in the headliner for the OnStar with that head unit for Bluetooth hands-free calling because I don't like using those stupid ones that they include that you have to clip to your headliner if there's already one in the car. For any of you that have installed an aftermarket head unit were you able to use that microphone? Did the aftermarket wire harness come with the ability to tap into that microphone? I plan on buying all the stuff from Crutchfield.

 

Parts I have chosen based on my research:

 

Radio: https://www.crutchfield.com/p_1302330NEX/Pioneer-AVH-2330NEX.html

 

Dash kit & Harness: https://www.crutchfield.com/p_120993309B/Metra-99-3309B-Dash-and-Wiring-Kit-Flat-Black.html

 

^^^this harness seems like it taps into the factory microphone but I'm sceptical since mines an LS I absolutely will not have that ugly Bluetooth mic Pioneer includes lol

 

Antenna adapter: https://www.crutchfield.com/p_12040EU55/Antenna-Adapter.html

 

I was thinking about doing XM satellite radio but I'm not sure how the A- pillars come off to put the wire up and stick the antenna to the windshield.

I would contact Crutchfield and ask them. They are very knowledgeable and should be able to answer all your questions.
