So I'm looking to upgrade the HU in my truck (02 GMC Envoy) and I want to hook up XM direct and also have a direct "AUX" input for my iPod Nano that can charge the iPod while I listen to it. My budget for the HU itself is $250 or less, and I'll pay whatever to get the adapters I'll need. Now, I do have a couple of notes: 1) I don't need the iPod to be controlled by the HU itself, since it will be mounted to a bracket on my dash in place of the SkyFi2 already mounted there. 2) I'd like to go with an Alpine or Pioneer HU, though I'd prefer Alpine between the two. I would consider others, though, if something even better is available. 3) I need to be able to remove the faceplate (nothing that can't be detached -- I know for a fact that it would be a huge security hazard.) 4) I have been using the FM Modulator on my SkyFi2 into a stock HU for a year now; I HATE IT. I'd like to avoid FM Modulators at all costs, if possible. Any help anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated. I was looking at the Alpine CDA-9847 earlier today, but I was getting mixed reviews on whether I could hook both XM Direct AND the iPod directly into the unit or not. So now, instead, I'm even more confused than I was to start with as far as what I'll need to make all of this work. Thanks, folks!
