    Yes, I have one. Install is VERY simple and the sound is cd-quality. I don't use a car charger for my iPod (or whatever media player you would like to use) so there is not an issue with hissing. However, if you choose to charge the media player while you are listening to music through the auxmod, I would recommend buying a ground loop isolator. The hissing is caused by charging the player while it is playing.

    ^^^ What he said. I would point out that the sound quality is only as good as the media you're playing through it. If you have crappy quality Mp3's then the sound won't be great.

    Thank You. Do you know if this voids factory warranty for the Audio system?

    That depends. For the most part I doubt the dealer will ever see the AuxMod there. If you do have some weird electrical problem I would suggest removing the AuxMod to see if that makes a difference before going to the dealer.

    There was one guy on another forum that had a recurring problem with his stereos. He had the audiolink module connected. The dealer ordered and installed 4 different HU's for him and each time reconnected the audiolink. The SM finally realized this and sent the guy a bill for $1,600 and blamed the aftermarket parts for causing the problems.

    Phone -->> audio input

    Hi, my first post ..........

    Just picked up my Galaxy Grey, GT, 5 door, wondering:

    is there a way to connect the audio out of the 3.5 mm plug on my phone into the aux input to play thru the radio, and just use a wired mic for the input to the phone ? anybody make somethin like that, can't find anything like that on the web, seems obvious.

    I don't treally need bluetooth, but would like to play the sound thru the radio.

    thanks

    Hmmm, I'm not sure as I don't actually have any of the integration methods. I'd try e-mailing rpm about the audiolink and asking them.... they're pretty good at getting back with people quickly.

    Hi everyone, I'm new here. I have the same problem. I have Sirius installed and the AUX port doesn't work. I don't really care about the sat. radio, so would it be possible for me to just get to the HU, unplug sirius and plug in the AUX instead?

    has anyone ever heard of the AVT IPOD Adapter? It seems really cheap, but does everything that the Audiolink can do.

    Here is an ebay link.

    can anybody comment on this. seems like a good option for my 2004 mazda 3.
