D.I.C Under spedometer and after market head unit.

Hello Guys,

I recently purchased a 2009.5 Pontiac G6 GT and I'm really liking it, I've owned many Pontiacs over the years including 2 Grand Am's and a Grand Prix. As my Grand Prix was going on 10 years old I decided now was the time to purchase one last Pontiac with a warranty, sad their gone isn't it?

Anyways I've tried my best to answer my question without having to ask in case it's been answered many times but couldn't find a lot of information. On the 09.5's the DIC is built in right under the speedometer and fortunately not in the radio. I'm looking at possibly adding a aftermarket head unit ( I have the monsoon system, hopefully this functions as normal with a new HU ) because I'd kinda like to get at least a few 10's set up nicely in the trunk to give it a little thump.

Now with the DIC being under the speedometer is any functionality going to be lost by removing the stock player? I really would like to retain all of the DIC's functionality as most of it is quite slick and occasionally useful.

Thanks guys I appreciate the help!

The buttons for the DIC are on the steering wheel.. I'm in the same boat.. I have 2 10's and a HU ready to go in.. just don't know what harness to get..

Yeah they are on the steering wheel, I feel like no functionality would be lost but I just wanted to make sure. It's interesting having a 2009.5 because there is not much information about the orphaned half year step.

I love the G8 inspired appearance, more then one person thought I was driving a G8 when they first saw the car.. heh nice G6 Jon, mine looks just like that

Hopefully someone has done this and can fill us in as to how the DIC and Monsoon reacts to removing the stock player.
