I just decided to treat myself to a 2003 Yukon XL SLT, very rare here in the UK
I am prepared to order from the US for my install, but obviously I want to get it right 1st time

Mine is a 2003 SLT, I am told it has a BOSE system, the speakers say BOSE on them but the headunit doesn't. The headunit has Delco part No. 15184935 on the side, is that BOSE?

OK, here is my plan, the way I see it I have 2 options.
Preferred Option 1:
Below the regular headunit in the centre console there is a space which has a single DIN opening which tapers off towards the back. I thought I could add a DVD 7 inch flip up screen here and feed the audio to the aux of the headunit.
Upon looking at the rear of the headunit today I see I will need an adapter like this maybe http://www.logjamelectronics.com/pacaaigm24.html

Option 2:
I replace the headunit for a double DIN in dash screen.
This brings up a whole load of issues with the BOSE amp and speakers already installed and also the onboard bongs etc.
Also the wife doesnt like the way the headunit points towards the driver and she cant see the screen properly, to I guess if I did it this way it might need a 2nd screen anyway

Soooo, can anyone advise the best route here, am I missing something which make this job easier or harder?
Thanks in advance

Hi,

I can't say for certain that your stereo is a Bose unit, but it was on the option list.

As a fellow US car owner (Camaro SS) I would suggest you go to the "Crutchfield.com" website and then select the outfit my car I htink it is called, where you can enter the make, model and year of your car / truck, plust what type of stereo you have - then simply search for what you want / need.

Crutchfiled do not ship to the UK (or atleast they didn't), so once you find what you wnat, either try and find it from the UK (screens etc) or search ebay for the wire harness adapters (trust me, you'll want them - I sut mine off - what a nightmare), vehicle specific mounting adapters, antenna adapters etc.

FYI, I removed my Bose / monsoon system and replaced with my own amp and pioneer Avic X1 single din, retractable screen dvd naviagtion unit.

Hope this helps,

that site has helped me a little, thanks

seems I need a gm12 adaptor which intercepts the cd changer in and creates an aux in

just unsure which brand to get, 1 of them says the cd changer has to be connected, but my car doesn't have one

think i'll start a new specific thread for the adaptors

No worries - Just be sure to ground the GM12 adapter very well. Apparently, the adapters need a very good ground to work - don't use the metal brace behind the stock stereo, as it is aparently not good enough.

You could try asking over at mp3car.com about which adapter is best.
