I have also been told of a better way to do this is by using the bottom port on the ipod (the big port on the bottom of the ipod for docking and what not) using a cable that connects to this port on one end and plugs into the aux. port on the other. However, then it is not possible to charge the ipod when using it.
We are not interested in doing a full integration of the ipod to the stereo (to use the stereo to control the ipod). We just want to keep it simple, with quality.
I wish they made cable that connected through the dociking port to the camry aux port, and still could charge the ipod (is there a product?)
Does anyone have any suggestions of the best cable to buy, the headphone port to aux, or the docking port to aux. port?
Thanks in advance for the tips!
they have a product called the SoundLinQ SLI .... which allows you to add an AUX input to the factory radio or NAV system, which is specifically for the iPod. This gives the clearest soudn possible as an input from the iPod, and allows the ipod to charge as well.
In addition to what I mentioned above, you can control the iPod with the factory raio/NAV screen, and even with the steering wheel controls!
They are still in development of another product, which I'm waiting for ... it will add 2 inputs. One is dedicated to the iPod, the other is an audio/video input, which will allow me to add DVD to my NAV screen, so I can wathc movies on the screen without cutting wires, etc. to allow DVD while vehicle is in motion!
I believe the cost is $199 or something around that.
Forget using the factory input, as all input through that port is shitty, and evan a ground loop isolator doesn't solve the buzzing issue!
