Question about Car Audio Receivers
I have a Jenson Phase and it said it came with a Media adapter includes Hook up an external audio device like an iPod or a Zune with the included media cable. I've just resinitly got an I pod and dont know were or now to hook it up. Can you please tell me how. You can E-mail me Back @ BigV0431@aol.com Thank You, Viviane R. Tourigny
SOURCE: hooking up an ipod
Can you give the model number of the interface adapter you're trying to use with your iPod? Is it an iPod control adapter made by Alpine, or just an auxiliary input adapter from Alpine or some other manufacturer? If you're trying to use the iPod as an auxiliary input, you'll need to turn on the Aux function, as described on page 24 of this owner's manual: http://vault.alpine-usa.com/products/documents/OM%20CDA-9811.pdf

There won't be a direct plug that will work, but you do have 2 options.
1. An aftermarket iPod interface module. Try PAC, Peripheral, or USA Spec. They may have one for your vehicle that will give you a direct audio in, as well as charging and possibly iPod control from the head unit.
2. A hardwired FM modulator. This would plug in through the car's antenna at the back of the radio, and you will probably find that it gives much better sound quality than the wireless FM modulators you've been using.

Niether .... do you know what you have in hand? Both those extras costed someone some cash ... OK here it is: the CDA-9884 has a dedicated input for ipod (a KCE-422i cable is needed and comes with the new CDA-9884 in the box) ... The HD radio unit allows you to recieve new HD radio signals (digital radio, and stations that have it in your area may also have extra music streams like HD TV does). The bt-400 is a bluetooth adapter to use bluetooth enabled devices with such as a cell phone. If your ipod has bluetooth you could used the bt adapter but I suggest the KCE-422i cable instead, and check out the HD radio too, it's pretty cool.

If you happen to have the tool which allows you to remove your head unit from the dash use it. If not go to crutchfield.com and get one it's useful for any audio enthusiast. Once you have the tool pull the head unit out on the back of the unit there is a cable that is black with a blue connector tip. This is what you plug your cable that you got from your audio dealer into. As for making the cable accesible you may have to drill a hole in your dash or run the wire around and out the glovebox which is also common and suggested for your particular car.
