G5 Stereo Unit - Mp3 Player option in G6 Stereo Unit

Hey guys (and possibly girls ),

I was wondering, as you all know, the G5 Stereo comes with a headphone Jack on the right side of the unit so you can plug any MP3 player into the stereo and get nice, crisp playback. I hate FM Transmitters so I want to know if anyone knows a way to get the same option on the G6? Thanks in advance.

There's no option to swap out the radios from a G5/Cobalt to a G6. The problem lies in the driver information center. The G6's is in the radio and the other cars have them in the gauge cluster.

Oh ok. So would there be a way to maybe splice in an aux connection to the factory unit?

Check out http://peripheralelectronics.com/home.asp for an aftermarket solution. I have one of their AUX2CAR units in my '06 Vibe, and I love it!

After looking at their compatibility list, it says the G6 in 2005 isn't compatible. I guess they have to update their list or I will have to give them a call.
