I'm just hearing about these aux adapter that adapt to oem car stereo to be able to plug to mp3 player to listen to music instead of getting a fm transmitter. Was wondering if anyone has use anything like this. I'm tired of the crappy fm transmitters and don't want a aftermarket stereo for theives to steal.
I have an older truck with just a factory cd/cassette deck and no aux(mp3) jack. So I recently bought a Monster tape deck adapter. It was cheaper than the FM transmitter. I wanted a way to listen to Pandora (on my phone) while I was in the truck. It took a little getting used to and it's not the best audio quality, but I haven't listened to the radio once since I put this thing in a month ago.
Now are you referring to something other than the FM transmitter and the tape adapter? I.E. something you hardwire? Subscribing....
The harness plugs into the back of the factory stereo, where the harness from the Ford satellite radio thing would normally go. Then I attached a cable with a 3.5mm stereo headphone jack on one end and a pair of RCA jacks on the other end. Everything is tucked behind the dash except for the cord with the headphone jack. I plug the headphone jack into my MP3 player, hit play, and hit SAT on the factory radio, set the volume and I'm good to go. Later, I added a female stereo headphone jack to the dash trim to make it look more professional.
Search their online store. It's a different box for different Fords.
