Title says it I need help i would like to hook up my ipod to the factory radio. Been searchin the forums and all i found was for the CD player. Has anyone done this if so please PLEASE post link ill still be searching Thank you in advance
The factory-style AUX adapter for plugin to the back of the radio would work just the same as CD-radio, but those are $40-100 plus install and the tape with a wire hanging out of your dash is under $5. #BeaterEconomics
I think the quality of those were great
This is an excellent point. We're not dealing with audiophile equipment here, it's an iPod/iPhone and a stock radio, and probably stock speakers. Lossy mp3s, crappy hardware in the car, who's going to notice any difference?
Aftermarket radio install is the cheapest real fix. Stock radios need activation ($100+) so it's bad beater economics to install a replacement stock radio. A house brand radio with USB can be as little as $25, plus a few bucks for a harness, antenna adapter and mounting kit. You'll be in it for under the price of your back of the radio adapter.
Any suggestions on a good quality headunit ( most bang for the buck) with an aux. under 300.00? i would like a headunit with a screen double din since I don't like the way a single din looks when the screen comes up. I would like BOSS or something like that but how good are they? ive always used JVC or Jenson . I do want to upgrade the door speakers to Pioneer, and the 6x 9s i have are Pioneer so those are good.
I recommended the 6in Pioneer AppRadio to another guy and I'll suggest it to you too. I see a lot of them in my business, users are always happy with them, and you can get the 6in screen model for $300.
You can go to like a electronics store and they sell these little radio transmitters basically you hook it up to your iPod/phone or anything with a headphone jack and you create a station with the little transmitter and it will play your songs like its own personal radio station. That's the cheapest way to go with no hassle. The prices vary from $20 up to $60 but a simple cheap one will do the job. No instillation required.
I have the cassette adapter works fine but when i first got it IIRC there was a setting in the radio that wont eject the adapter. Because the radio thinks the tape is wrapped to tight and with a setting change it wont eject i recommend checking the owners manual for radio settings.
