    We did accomplish this mod in an 03 Chevy Avalanche. This truck had the same system as in my 02. I think GM just throws in what they have on the shelf at the time.
    Actually, I didn't buy the other Onstar receiver off Ebay it was Wayne Dohal. I didn't do a very good job of quoting him. I just ended up using an Earthmate with a serial cable. If I ever tear into the dash again I'll take a look at the Onstar unit to see if it is the newer design.

    GM is changing the onstar units to a digital ready unit instead of analog only as the older ones where.

    Thought I'd drag this to the top.
    First: props to openminds for coming up with this. This is an awesome idea.
    Second: props to all the folks helping with my particluar challange over at Saabcentral.com.
    Together, we're going to get this working in a 2003 Saab 9-3.

    Anyway, what we've determined so far is that there is a Sony chip in there. Specifically a GXB3000 using a CXD2932 chip.
    The pinouts are way different than what you have, but that is to be expected. My biggest hurdle is that I cannot find ANY info on the GXB3000 ANYWHERE. There is loads on the GXB2000 ( http://products.sel.sony.com/semi/PDF/GXB2000.pdf ), and they are similar. I can only hope the pinouts are the same.

    Does anyone know where to find a spec sheet for the GXB3000?

    Anyway, I have a 10 pin connector (all in 1 row), and have to determine which is pin 1. After that, and I scrape some dough for the RS232-to-TTL Serial Level Converter, I'll be in business.
    You know you want to...Worklog
    Enjoying v1.0 since it's operational. Aaaawww yeah.
