Put basically, you have two options:

Option 1:
Find a used >NON-Monsoon< original head unit (the Monsoon radio needs an external amplifier, so if you bought one you'd have a lot more work to do). You can find them all over eBay, and there are a few auto dismantlers online that sell them as well. It will cost you about $100. You can also buy a new one, and it is also possible to find some reconditioned units.

Next, install the radio in your car and take it to a GM dealership who can program your car to recognize the replacement. Cost will be between $0 and $100.

Buy the aftermarket Aux/iPod/whatever adapter that you want and install it, cost $95 - 150 plus accessories (HD or satellite tuner, etc.).

Option 2:
Buy an aftermarket head unit, cost $50 - 1000.

Buy a Metra or Scosche mounting kit. They have them available with replacements for the Driver Information Center so you can keep those readouts. Cost about $125.

Buy the chime/warning replacement adapter if you want to retain those functions. Cost about $100.

Buy new speakers since your head unit will probably blow the stock ones pretty quickly.
