Sweet. Looks good!
So I just installed my auxmod basic tonight and figured I would do a quick write up (mostly just a story board of the install). For those who dont know, auxmod basic uses your tape/md selector to play external sources (i.e. iPod) through the stock HU.
stock HU out
just shows where to slide the auxmod in
auxmod installed in the HU
**EDIT** Important thing to note here is that you will NOT hear a snapping/locking sound. I was expecting it to lock in place and it doesnt, but the two sided tape will hold it. So dont try to FORCE the auxmod until you hear it lock, because it WONT
bought this cable at Radio Shack for $5, one end plugs into auxmod, and other end into the headphone jack on my iPod
cable plugged into auxmod and ziptied to radio to keep it in place
to route the cable cleanly, I cut a whole in the back of where the ashtray goes
I then dremeled a groove into the ashtray to route the cable again
I also dremeled a groove into the front of the ashtray so I can tuck the cable into the ashtray and close it.
this is what the finished product looks like. It sounds amazing too. All you have to do is push the "tape/md" button and you are good to go!
Any questions, just ask! it was very easy and I HIGHLY recommend it

haha, the install was actually SO easy. The thing that took a minute was routing the cable and making holes where I wanted.Originally Posted by ZoomVT

i was thinking about doing this ipod mod, but i wanted to run the cable through to the little spot next to the shifter (sort of like a pen or change holder, WTF is is for anyways) like bikerbadger did.
The only thing that is holding me back is that iwould liek to be able to just pass the ipod around to my friends to choose the music they want without disconnecting it from the HU.
my cable is six feet long. I am able to pull it back to between the front two seats while leaving it plugged inOriginally Posted by ZoomVT
The only problem with having a long cord like that is what to do with it when you aren't having to move it. Mine just gets in the way.
mine just tucks back into the dashOriginally Posted by Jeph
I want mine to be retractable... I mean mine folds nicely behind my cupholders, but its always in the way it feels like.
oh dude thats a great idea!Originally Posted by Jeph
i had a retractable cord for my phone in my previous job.
i am sure there is one for headphones, which would work in this instance.
*firing up google*
i'll be back
