It should be the same # for all of them. They only make 1 unit for all GM products.

if you add GMXMD100 (I assume this is the XM tuner and antenna package) - how does it interface with the stock 6-disc, how do you select XM, and what is displayed on screen? Anybody have photos?

Well I have seen that one, but don't want a separate XM unit (I have a SkyFi already but controlling a fully separate radio for Sat is just not practical for me, especially as there is only ONE station I ever listen to on regular radio)

I'm either going with the GMXM thing or a full-on touchscreen system.

I don't have any pictures of the install in my SSR mainly because there is nothing to take a picture of. The Unit plugs into the back of the standard radio in the truck. It then operates as another "band" when you push the band button. XM1 and XM2 come up as other bands by just pushing the button. It displays the XM channel you have selected and it even stores your favorite channels just as you would store your favorite FM or AM channels. The only other issue is where to mount the ant. Mine is mounted just above the windshield on the outside, others have put it on the rearview mirror inside the truck, on the dash or I've even heard of installing it under the dash. I guess it's what you feel is the most effective without effecting it's operation. Good Luck!! JimO :cool

Followup questions -

1. if I get the GM XM and plug it in, and later change out the head unit, I should be able to use an adapter to keep that same XM receiver trucking with the new HU, no? I know there is an adapter to connect an XM100 to Kenwood products, f'rinstance.

2. When XM is being used as a band in the factory stereo, does it display channel name, artist and title in the same fashion as the RDS info goes across?

It's some permutation of those letters, XMDGM100 I think, for the Terk "XM Direct" Tuner for GM cars (not a separate headunit, but the receiver itself that is ostensibly "factory") - but as it's not a string of 10 numbers or so, I think that's the part "name" rather than the part #.

jammadave everything works just like it does now. The only differance is when you press the band button it will bring up x1 and x2 in addition to fm am and cd. The x1 will be for driver 1 and x2 for driver 2 settings.

No it does not. It only has 1 line of information, you have to keep pushing the recall button to get the rest of information up 1 line at a time.

That's all I needed to hear - won't be going this route then, I listen to such off the wall stuff that I really need to look at the info most of the time to note who and what.
