I totally agree with Moosehead, the key for a successful installation depends on the knowledge of the installer. Anybody can connect wires, however, today, in the mobile audio world integrating into these car system, the installer has to know more about the car. Since the GC uses the Hi-Speed CANBUS, we fall into this category only because the one wrong connection or something is out of sync will effect another non-audio system in the GC.
The one thing that IMO Best Buy Greek Squad warranty program give them an edge.
By the way, I am in the same boat as you. In my case, I have no nav and I also want to rehab the entire system. Right now for nav, I waiting for the new Kenwood headunits to come out with new interface from Idatalink. It is my understanding that sometime this summer or fall it should be out to tap into the UConnect system in the GC. This would make life much easier for me to rehab the audio into a better sounding premium system.
Best for now.
