Factory mp3?

are any of the head units offered in the G6 MP3 compatible? I have a 6 disc mp3 in my Sebring and I just love it. Having the AUX input is a nice bonus as well.
I've noticed in my online shopping that many other car companies are offering 6disc mp3 units. Am Imissing something or is GM that far behind the curve?

I know the new "black tie" head unit in the 09.5 has a USB port as well, but is it mp3 also?

So if I swap out my 07 factory unit with an 08 factory unit all will be ok and work with aux input and nothing will be lost? Any ideas about nav units to put in that will still control everything?

metra and scortch (SP? lol) both make an exterior DIC that can be mounted in your pass glovebox or center console should you wish to drop a nav unit in. But to date there is not a nav unit out there (or naything else) that will capture your DIC info.

Yes you can swap but the Pontiac radios are married to the cars. You need access to a dealership Tech2 to reporgram your upgrade to your car.

Dealerships can charge anywhere from free to $80 for that.

Most dont even know they can do it. lol

What I meant by MP3 compatible was will they play CDs burned in mp3 format?

The 6 disc Monsoon system in my 2007 plays MP3s that are burned to a CD..it sucks that I know that. I'd like to be playing the mp3s directly from my IPOD with an AUX input. Maybe someday, soon. . .
