  1. Radio Downgrade from Navigation to Standard Unit

    9-5 Workshop
    I am attempting to do the opposite of what most threads here discuss: My goal is to remove the navigation unit from my 2005 Aero and put in a nice clean standard head unit that I pulled from a 2004 Arc (single CD and tape deck, no screen). I like the all analog look :D and hope to put bluetooth...
  2. 2006 - Need advice on adding Hand's Free Phone / Bluetooth

    9-5 Workshop
    My daughter's 2006 SC needs a hands-free phone setup. If I can install something that lets her play her music too, that's more than okay! Our state is about to pass a hands-free-only cell phone law, and thought my daughter is pretty good about only calling or answering when pulled off of the...

    So, I love my 2003 Saab Arc 9-5 3.0t, but I'm sick of playing music through the cassette aux player, I've looked online and there's many options, installing an Android or touch screen Double DIN, or installing the Saab Nav thing, or doing some gypsy magic behind the dash and hooking up an Aux...

  11. Bluetooth Installation

    9-5 Workshop
    Just wanted to document the Bluetooth interface that I installed on my 2004 9-5. The radio doesn't have an aux-in and I wanted to minimize wiring to connect up my phone. I have a Samsung Galaxy. I did this a bit different than the other write-ups that I saw on here. I went with the Tranzit Blu...

    Ok, so since I bought my 9-7x, I had been wanting either an AUX port or Bluetooth. So after some investigating I found that I could spend lots of $ on adapters or try to wire something together myself. For this project I took know-how from other forum posts and websites. In total the project...
