    Good radio for the price

    I bought this item as a package which included a new radio for my 2005 Silverado. It has the features I wanted like multiple inputs so I can listen to audio books on long trips and a way to charge my cell phone without a specific car charger. I also enjoy the hands free cell phone use I get now. What I don't like (but it is getting better now that I am able to get some practice with the radio) is how the buttons are so sensitive. I will retrieve my sunglasses from the slot underneath the radio face and accidentally hit a button changing the station or I will not hold the source button long enough and the radio will change source instead of turning off. Worse of all, if I touch the volume control wrong the radio will go into setup mode instead of adjusting the volume. All in all I am happy with the package, the radio and the installation.

    I got a radio for my boyfriend for christmas and was leaving for the Air Force 5 weeks after Christmas. When I got him the radio I didnt realize I needed to make an appointment for him, so when he called they were all booked up..but I told the guy my situation and he was more than happy to put it in for me! This guy did an amazing job installing it, very fast and very helpful! Thank you so much for your work and thank you for making time to install my boyfriends radio so he could enjoy it before he left for the military! I appreciate it!

    RETURNED FOR REFUND, BUT WORKS GREAT

    I returned this for a refund simply because I had purchased a radio that did NOT need the adapter. I do "most" of my own installs, and tend to buy items to make the install go smoothly and avoid stopping during the middle of working to drive to BB in order to purchase a necessary part. This was one of those purchases, I simply did not need the item. It does work just as advertised.

    When changing out an older unit (20 years old) for a 2017 radio, this will be an item you will need to get prior to installation. Older parts are just not compatible with the new stuff. It was a fair price and really part of the 1 stop shopping Best Buy offers to it customers, who will need installation of their product

    The 2001 Chevrolet Silverado was receiving a new upgraded radio unit and Best Buy had the adapter for sale to help make the installation complete. The Best Buy price match helped in the competitive pricing marketplace and was sold to me for the best legitimate price that I found and presented to Best Buy.

    An extension plug that didn't work

    Waited for a young man for quite a while to get a plug that was supposed to work for my needs. He was really polite, told us it might or might not work. So we kinda knew it might be a gamble. But considering i live 45 minutes away, was not trying to gamble. It didn't work, no hard feelings. Still love best buy and their products.

    I'm thinking it would have been cheaper to purchase a new car with an updated entertainment center than purchase a stereo and have to get nickel and dimed to death with all the various adapters and harness that I need to buy to put a 79 dollar stereo into a 13 year old pick up truck.

    Antenna Adapter

    The adapter works great for my 1997 Chevy Tahoe. I tried connecting the radio before without the antenna and the reception was bad and didn't realize it needed an adapter until I called the call center for help.

    The installation on this stereo was perfect. I would definitely use this best on Colonial again for a stereo install in my car. They are very nice are quick to install and keep you informed. The look is fabulous and you can't tell they installed anything in you car. Clean install no wires can be seen.

    While it's annoying to discover upon buying your stereo, this antennae is a requirement for installing an aftermarket stereo into your GM vehicle. The stereo itself will come with a regular antennae, but GM vehicles come with a mirco. This adapter allows you to connect your GM antennae to your new aftermarket radio.

    Not as good as factory

    Using this adaptor, my radio reception is much worse than when I had the factory system in the vehicle. In fairness, it could be a problem with the install, but with the new setup the AM is useless, and the FM is very weak. The only reason I'm recommending it is that you have no choice... you have to have an adapter

    not much to say...um...(impersonates Ben Stein) if you need to install an aftermarket radio and want to listen to a radio station, you will need this adapter. the gm antenna plugs are smaller than what is needed for an aftermarket radio. bueller...bueller...bueller...

    works with the whole radio products, I get good reception all the time so it must be a good product if i bought it. but of course it was recommended by the sales people that sold me my radio; so far they were right on with all the products that I bought from them. I'm very happy with it all.

    This came a while after ordering but didn't fit my car as promised. Tech simply gave up on install of CD/radio + wiring harness in my car. I had to go through return of all items for credit, waste of two weeks' time, still no solution to my car's broken CD/radio. Very unhappy.

    I bought this on the advice of the best buy employee, the entire system wouldn't hook up to car - nobody realized this until after trying to install. Ended up with a cheap Sirius radio, but paid the bill for the other install. The sirius goes on and off, probably hooked up wrong.

    When I purchased my stereo, back-up camera and all the other goodies needed to install a new stereo I was told I needed one of theese. I guess I did. It did what it was made to do and fit great with my vehicle and new stereo. I haven't had any problems with it.

    This part was crucial to the installation but I have a lot of static in my radio that was there before and thought this would solve the problem. I truly appreciated the work done by the installer and his recommendation to this Chevrolet genuine part but not to happy with the static.

    Leave it to GM to use an odd size antenna cord for their older stereo units. This makes the installation of a new unit much easier. It is strictly a size adapter from the factory cord to the socket in the new unit. So simple to use, even an old guy like me could do it.
