Check out the costartech forum. I made a thread there about all those interested in getting a small group buy together.

There is also a thread here about it. I currently have a working unit in my RL. I sent the wiring diagrams for 2002-04 RL and 2003 TL/CL to costartech so hopefully Chris over there will be able to make it an instock product.

I would love to get that done and then i can save that cost on a after market stereo system. My 03' TL w/ navi feels under used.

OLD_Hatch How is the unit in your RL working out. I have a 02 RL and would be interested in seeing how this works out. Please post or PM me the specs and costs of the conversion.

Well.... I havent used it in over a month!

No fault due to the unit though. My car is in for paint n some custom stuff and should get it back soon.


Before it went in was still working like it should just like in the video. I miss having a bluetooth handsfree.


After a couple of months (4-6) it was working perfectly fine auto pairing when the vehicle started and of course blocking sound when call was ringing etc.

Cant wait to use it again.


If you have a phone that does voice dial over bluetooth that would make it even better. Unfortunately mine does not.

Sounds good. I have BB Pearl, about which I am not sure if it does voice dialing over BT, anyway I will be upgrading to a BB Tour which I think does have voice dialing over BT. Currently I use a Jabra BT530 which I like a lot, but it would be nice to reuse the Onstar mic/speaker to enable BT in the car.

I bought it, it didn't work for me very well. People could hear me but I couldnt hear them. Instead I bought a Kenwood X994 which has integrated parrot bluetooth.

I'll sell the unit (basically a circuit board with a wire harness) if anyone is interested.
