long story short, I can't put an aux input in my 06 G6 stereo, no band or p-type button, and I don't want to use an FM modulator...can I buy a factory stereo off like ebay from an 08 or 07 G6 and use it in my car? And even if the plug fits, is the software used on the newer models possibly different? the dealership was clueless. any help would be great!

They go here on the Tech2.
I am not a Tech so I cant give you the play by play but its:
Radio Setup
To setup a new radio for the vehicle, complete the Module Replacement/Setup procedure under the Radio menu of the scan tool.
Cycle ignition when complete.
Aux Port?

This sounds promising, but if you install an 08 Monsoon stereo in an 06, what about the Aux port that is typically inside the center console unit? :confused: That would be my whole reason for installing one.
That is why you do it....to get the aux!!! That and most peoples cd changers crap out in less than 3 years. Just get the 08 single CD so u dont have to worry about that anymore.
