So I have the 2006 base GP which of corse doesn't have the compass or outdoor temp. Thinking about installing a factory GM type like this one. Think it'll work?? How would go about getting power to it?? I just want the outdoor temp really but with a factory look. Thanks.

ive swapped in a 5 button dic into an 04 gt base model. worked fine,

it is a stand alone module that reads its data off the CANbus.

only thing youd have to know is the mileage of the dic as thats the only place the vehicles mileage is stored
So all the sensors are already on the car?? E.g. trans temp, compass, outdoor temp, oil life %, etc??

outside temp sensor is required for the heating/ac system, compass is integral to the 5 button dic, oil life is a sythetic PID generated by the PCM based on engine runtime/conditions, trans temp is integral to the trans/pcm, all this data is requested and transmitted between computers via the databus which on an 06 is a CANbus where an 04/05 is serial and canbuss (transition years)

just get a bigger dic, it'll solve all yer problems
Sweet. I'm gonna try that route. Thanks.
