    Hi guys just wondering how many people with the standard Blaupunkt headunit have managed to get their ipods connected without using the front aux input.... I have tried that and found it sounds just like Crapola, Just wondering what other people have done. Thanks

    My ipod goes in the front of the head unit. No dramas for me.I do thread the cable under the plastic cover of the centre console on the driver's side and up into the storage bin from behind - but in a ute, there's no rear passengers to see how messy that is! lol There's a wiring kit you can get so it plugs into the rear aux - apparently you can charge it that way also - but that slots into the too hard/don't care enough basket for me.

    I connect my MP3 player directly into the Front Aux too, and have absolutely no issues. It's a Sony Walkman though, connected using a Belken 3.5 to 3.5mm cable which tucks up under the radio stack in that little space along with the player. The cord is retractable so it never gets tangled or messy. I used a Belken FM transimitter in my old car which did not have an MP3 connection, it was very average in my opinion.

    I hooked up an apple Iphone/Ipod cable directly to the rear AUX in. I also hard wired it to 12+ so that it charges aswell.

    No wires to be seen and you still have the front AUX in if needed.

    For the record the FM transmittors are total rubish. You get better sound quality listening to the music on your Iphone speaker. Dont waste your money.

    I use my UHF Scanner, Netbook, Ipod through the 3.5mm stereo Aux input. Works great, however if I have any of these devices charging through the cigarette lighter it causes a whine through the stereo.
    I have solved this by getting one of these from Pac-Audio SNI-1 3.5

    I currently use the front aux port for my Ipod with a very short 3.5 cable.
    I did find that to get any decent quality I needed to max the ipod volume and turn off the EQ in the Ipod (very important)
    As HoldenSupporter mentioned, if you also have the ipod charger connected you must use a ground loop isolator.

    I am waiting on an audio cable for the rear aux input from JHP so as soon at that arrives I will hook my Ipod to that and get rid of the the 3.5 cable.
    Will let you know how well that works when its done.

    I all have just purchased an iPhone holder with charger/Audio cable. But when I have my iPhone charging from the cigarette lighter I get a whining noise coming through the stereo, but when I disconnect it from the lighter the sound goes away. Is there some sort of earthing device or something to stop the whining noise coming through the stereo?

    I purchased a reverse camera kit from No Limit and it comes with a rear AUX in kit.

    I also purchased a proper Iphone/Ipod cable from apple. It has RCA outs and a cigarette lighter charger.
    I cut the end off the charger and hard wired it. There is no nosie at all when its charging and playing.

    I fitted it all up myself. Would take an hour or so to do.

    Call No Limit Electronics and tell them what you need.
