There is a auxiliary button on the sony cdx-m8800. Is there a way to hook up an IPOD? The stereo also has MP3 written on the inside face. Thanks

Contrary to the below Expert's testimony, the UK CDX-M880 has a REAR AUX connector that will enable you to play your iPod through your car's stereo.

You will not be able to control the ipod's interface through the radio. You will have to use the control on the iPod .

You require a Male 3.5mm extension cable like the following...

I have a male ipod connector in my car to attach an ipod to. I do not have an ipod but would like to be able to connect a standard mp3 player to this connect point via a jack plug. Please can you advise if...

If your Sony has female RCA Aux inputs, then you can use that going headphone out of MP3 player to the RCA inputs. You won't be able to view or controll any other player from the head unit except an iPod.

Want to use ipod on cdx-f5710, how to fix it

use the aux lite input on the rear of the reciever. If it is a 3.5mm plug, you will need an extension with both ends male. One end in the aux port, on your head unit, the other end in the headphone jack of the ipod.
If it is RCA Aux lite, you need an rca-to-3.5mm adapter. Either item should be relatively cheap. $4-$5 USD

Sony cdx mp40 bus audio in

ok dont know if you will check up on this but fm transmitters are all garbage. for true undistorted sound go to an electronics store and ask for a rca to headphone cable. then just hook it up to the rca input and run the cable out of either the unit or somewhere on the dash. this will alow for a true connection and if you buy a brand name cable i.e. monster, radioshack, sony etc. should sound amazing. always happy to help.

Having problems hooking up an ipod.

The "bus audio input" works as an auxiliary input on some Sony decks, but not all. For the others, you need an auxiliary input adapter like this one: You can also use a Sony iPod adapter that will charge the iPod and let you control it through the head unit controls:

Linking an i pod to a Sony CDX-MP40 using the bus input terminal

Some Sony head units let you use the Bus audio inputs as an auxiliary source input, but yours is not among them. To play your iPod through the head unit, you'll either need an iPod interface module: or an auxiliary input module: The iPod interface will allow you to control and display the iPod directly through the head unit, while an auxiliary input adapter will allow the iPod to play through the head unit using the iPod's controls and display.

press source button repeatedly to select "CD" or "MD" be aware that in order to connecting Ipod to a car stereo you will need to use an extension cable with 3.5 mm stereo connectors on each end to connect iPod to your car stereo system's aux input, or use a cassette adapter if your car stereo doesn't have a sound input jack. Either of these items can be purchased at stores that sell car stereo accessories. good luck!
