Aftermarket cruise control

Can anyone suggest an installer for aftermarket cruise control on a 2009 Chevy Cobalt in the Tampa Bay, Fl. area?

Have you tried clicking on ‘Mechanics Files’ above and see what’s in your area? The number of folks that have aftermarket CCs installed is very small, do you have the unit in hand?

Here’s a list from one vendor:

Check with your dealer. Adding cruise control to a vehicle with electronic throttle control is usually easy, cruise control switch, sometimes a clockspring and turning on the feature in the ECU.

Whenever I hear “aftermarket” and the subject is not a radio or CD player then I shudder a little bit. There are very few, if any, reliable aftermarket cruise controls, security systems and remote starters on the market.

Thank you all for the tips.
