Well, right now Sync is just a Ford thing. Just like On-Star is a GM thing. I'm not sure what kind of contract MS and Ford have, but I really can't see myself using voice controls for my stereo...

All I need is an MP3 jack on the front, or a Disc Changer input on the back (can be made to support MP3 player as well). I rarely listen to the radio unless I want a traffic report, and I doubt too many satellite stations will be giving local traffic every 10 minutes like my AM news station does.

Other than that, as long as the sound quality is decent, I won't need to replace the stereo. At least not anytime soon.

More than likely the new Camaro will use the same thing most other cars are doing now. You won't even use that FM Transmitter for the MP3 Player, it will plug into a jack directly into the radio.

I certainly am hoping for that.

My '07 Aveo LS (the most basic model) has no CD player, but it has an MP3 Jack. This should give you a little glimpse into Chevy's priorities regarding media playback.

I can almost guarantee you 100% that the Camaro will have some kind of MP3 input.

Yeah, many moons ago in a place far away, a poll was taken with those present about a sound system and our choices. One was mentioned and it is not monsoon or any of the other past or present ones featured. All I can say is, "it will be sweet". If it is chosen. There will be no disappointments! Sorry, that is all I can say, I cannot betray a confidence. Hope you guys understand.

If you're talking about what Mbai thinks you're talking about, you already said which was mentioned in the poll...

Boston Acoustics would be awesome as long as I can replace the headunit without messing with the factory amp and speakers.

Thank you! I am glad someone is on the ball! Now I know why I can't remember what I had for lunch today. I can't believe I said it. Yeah, Boston Accoustics.... That is it. Guess it is no longer to be kept under wraps. I for one, hope that is what is chosen.

I'm going to have to agree, that would be pretty sweet. I've never had a car with anything close to a decent sound system, but this is going to be my car. None of my other cars have been nice enough to be worth upgrading, but the Camaro will be worth every dime that I can put into it to make it better. If it comes with an audio system that is good enough that I don't have to upgrade, that's all the better.

I agree ! When this new beast becomes mine I'll probably be happy with anything other than the JVC I have now in my truck, which isn't bad mind you but Im sure whatever they put into the new Camaro it will be stellar enough for me..LOL

Oh, pleeeeeez let it be Boston Acoustics. I'd be so happy to know we would be getting a quality sound system. Of course, the JL subs and amp would still be installed....but the sound clarity would be rediculous!!!

It's not exclusive to the Camaro Concept.
Actually, JL audio has an option for any radio shape. It wires into the existing system, but improves the quality like an aftermarket system. This way, you can keep the integrated look but have JL audio quality, which many would argue is the best in the affordable market.

I would love it if GM got off their arses and put in a real stereo system too many other cars have great system even the Pontiac's Monsoon was a tons better than Chevy's Bose options

GM should dump the CD and put in a MP3/WMA DVD drive in it this way we can still play CD's but we could rip DVD's with Mp3/WMA's and get alot more time out of disc

definately needs a media player slot or plug in

hopefully they tweak their current Navigation system to allow like an iPod to connect to it or a cell phone with a Bluetooth adapter

GM has always been behind with the audio dept. it seems

Yup...but I do believe that is going to be for the concept only...not for production. You can't hold me to it, but I'm pretty sure I remember hearing from a reputable source (bout a year ago) that the digital dash in that top center portion wasn't going to be like that. It would be nice if they could integrate something in there....as long as it looked nice.

Do GM even have a version like the Chrysler MyGIG and Fords Sync, if not they need to step up

If the maro comes with Boston acoustics would it be the first the first, last I checked Chrysler is contracted with Boston acoustics and GM is with Bose and what the type speakers does ford have, the other day I saw an top dog Focus and that bitch was thumping, and it was to new to be aftermarket cause it did not have any tags yet

I agree. They need a sweeping interior somewhat like the new buick concepts, Cadillac CTS and Malibu. They could still incorporate most of the Camaro concept in this it would just have a more funtional and asthetically pleasing center section. The center section on the prepos is definantley not working.
