my '08 SS Sportswagon plays MP3s no problems. I thought the SV6 was the same headunit?
Yeah, it's apparently the same unit - to the naked eye, and physically & electrically speaking...

I've read elsewhere on the net that other people think it's a firmware issue, I think it's probably Holden finding out the MP3 playing function has issues, and rather than sort it out like sensible engineers would, they have decided to "de-feature" the stereo unit. Has many people ar$ed at Holden currently...

I can't believe anyone else doesn't have similar problems with this stereo. My wife's 5 year old Subaru has a 2DIN unit, which actually plays MP3 files, so it doesn't need replacing... ironically.

Hi blasto,

You must have a single cd player in your car.

The six stacker units play MP3 cds. All you have to do is order a head unit and a fascia from Holden or Blaupunkt.

I hope that helps.

i know with the series 2 commodore there all the same unit its just a programme then run through the head deck that gives you the sat nav, mp3, and ipod integration depending on what model you get will depend on what the unit is able to do. Not sure if thats the case with series 1 tho but could be worth looking into?
