Also, Is there a way to take the wires that go to the cd changer and adapt them for IPOD use? Meaning not use the CD changer but use your IPOD instead. I cant really explain it better but i hope you all know what im getting at here. Do they make a wire harness for this type of application?
Also that cassette adapter mentioned above is the easiest way but also the messiest you would just need to keep your Ipod charged or get a car charger for it. This gives you those messy looking cables on your dash but def managable and a great solution
A FM Mod is a wired adapter. It plugs directly into your stock stereos antenna spot and then your factory antenna cable plugs into it. So when the unit is ON, your radio sees it as the strongest (well one of them) stations. So you dont have to switch stations as much (if ever) when you drive through other cities.
This is just one I found quick but gets the idea across.
you can see that it has a port or female end for the factory antenna and a male end. The adapters I am recommending have a cable which charges your Ipod.
