everything you need to know about these HU's: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2660662. I had one in my '05. Just use Key 1, if memory serves. I switched to a Pioneer AVIC in the '07 to keep the Sirius/XM, though I do miss many of the Android HU's features. It may have been quirky, but there are ton's of mods and hacks you can perform on them, and there's constantly improved software being developed. I hope this helps...

So if your radio has a Key1 and Key2 wire you should be able to program it without an additional controller. Now as for which wire to which? I guess Ill figure that out when I hook my stereo up next weekend!

Did you ever figure out how to wire it up?

Yeah mine works but honestly 2.5 years later I can't remember how I wired it. I can tell you it works without a controller for my Pumpkin Android head unit.

Do you remember if you took the wires from the sync harness or the main stereo harness?

This is the 04-08 section of the forum. We're not fancy enough to have sync. You'll probably have better luck if you look under the correct generation for your needs. What year are you working with?
