    I don't think a gmlan module would work for me because I don't currently have steering wheel controls. My model vette didn't come with them, so there is no wiring, interface, etc. Even if I could get the module to work, I'd still have to interface it with the tablet somehow, which would probably still lead me down the sixaxis hack route, so the only thing the gmlan module would save me is the gm steering wheel button hack, so it's not worth the money. If you know more about these modules than I do, please enlighten me. If there's an easier way to do this, I'm all for it.

    I'm running a complete 4-way active network in my car, powered by JL XD series amps. Check THIS out to see my build thread.

    Ah I missed that you didn't already have steering wheel buttons, you would have to purchase a whole new steering wheel clock spring. IMO not worth going that route. I assume you're planning on dropping the sixaxis bluetooth inside of the wheel?

    I haven't figured that out yet but I doubt it. I'll have to wire the controls through the steering wheel somehow because the sixaxis module will never fit inside the wheel.

    Running extra wires through the steering column is going to require a new clock spring, likely the one that supports wheel buttons. I looked up one for an Aveo a while back and it was $100-140.

    Congrats on getting off the mod list.

    ugh, I forgot all about the dang clock spring, good lookin out. I don't think that'll be worth it. I think I'll just wire up the HUD buttons, and call it a day. That'll be enough to have volumeup/volumedn, next/prev, and play/pause. That's all I really need, the rest can be done from the tablet.

    Have you opened up your steering wheel yet? Might be able to fit that board in on the opposing side from the buttons. Alternatively you could ditch the airbag, not recommended of course.

    I saw that open space on some pictures, but I still have to be able to provide power to the board somehow, and trying to splice them off of the airbag connections seems like a really bad idea.

    Agreed there, battery pack maybe. Gotten should be a negative switch so that won't work. Your clock spring might be the same across all trims though, worth taking a look.
