the best thing to do is check with a dealer parts department or a specialty car audio store. They will be able to suggest some good looks that fit with the design. I would keep in mind the ambient lighting in the car is green so if your looking for a deck rtry and get one where the lighting matches up

What's the price tag on that unit including install? Does it integrate thoroughly with all the Malibu steering wheel controls?
I picked up the unit for $800. after the wiring harness, ipod controls, steering controls and installation it ran for about $1200. So it def was cheap but worth it because I really depend on that navi when I travel. The iPod controls rock, everything is integrated right on the system and yes the steering controls work great! The only thing it disables is the beeping sound from the seat belt indicater and the left/right turn signal sound. I would need the onstar adapter for that to work but I just don't see a need for it.

I bought the LTZ so it has the premium bose sound speakers
I could not find who made the premium sound system for the LTZ. My 08 Equinox has premium sound, and it has Pioneer badges on the door speakers. I could not find any markings on the LTZ speaker.
Did you find Bose markings when you tore into yours ?

I do not own a Ipod, but I would think the two stores you mentioned would have it. Wal-Mart carries a few Ipod items and if you can wait a couple days order online from Amazon.

Actually when I was researching what car to buy I read several articles that talked about the Bose speakers and my salesman mentioned it.

Lee is right about both having them. I wouldn't suggest purchasing it from Apple though only because they have a higher markup for such a small cable. i purchased mine from radioshack, just let them know your looking for a male to male audio jack.

As a follow up, has anyone thought of trying the GM PAL (personal audio link) with their iPod??? It allows you to control almost any function of the iPod from the factory radio, and the radio in most Malibus (US8,US9 radios) accepts the mod. Here's a link: http://www.gm.com/shop/parts/ipod/PAL+Quick+Ref+Guide+NOV07.pdf

Eventhough it only states certain vehicles, those vehicles' radio head units are pretty much standard throughout GM.

I'm going to pick up the cable tomorrow, thanks for the info - the GM PAL info is very interesting, worth a shot!
