Im thinking about getting the PAL with a 5th gen 30gb iPod. I have a 2009 Malibu 2LT with the standard radio. It doesn't have the dual climate control, or any of that. Just the 1 CD, XM radio, etc. It does do the turn by turn navigation via OnStar with directional arrows. I have no idea which radio this is (US8/US9 - Anyone know?) so I'm not sure if the PAL will be compatible or if the PAL will work with that iPod. Does anyone know? If it will work, does anyone know how well it works? Do you tune to a specific XM channel or what? Does it produce audio quality equal to or better than using the aux in jack? Does it display the artist/album/etc. for the tracks playing? Can I search the mp3s via the radio controls or just play them all back at random?
