I'm no car audio expert so keep that in mind lol but I did however install this mod on my Yukon. As far as bleed over I know what you mean. When I switch over to XM preview you can still here XM audio until you plug in your ipod/phone/mp3 and then it takes over. Not sure how it works but it does lol . I've never had any issues with background noise while using my phone for music either. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the great tip. Now I have the music I want instead of whatever's on the FM!

Yes,

I don't have the navi but I have the 6 disk and works great for me. You can have the xm on any channel and it cuts the audio for whatever you are playing

aux only works with DVD on

So, I did this mod the other day. I cut the wires to the xm cause i'll never use it. I couldn't get the aux to work even though I kept checking the wires and they seemed correct. So, I was about to give up and wanted to make sure my dvd sound still worked. With the DVD player on the aux works. I also hear phone not available when ever I get in the car. So, it isn't too big of deal to just turn on the DVD. Does anyone know what I did wrong, how to fix it or just live with it. Haven't read of this issue on any threads.

Does this eliminate XM?

Mine only worked when it was plugged into the XM box and spliced into the 3 wires.

And as far as the bleed over problem for the ones who mentioned it. If you turn your XM to channel 0 which is your radio ID number there is no sound coming from that channel which will allow now bleed over
