Do you need to lower the screen or power on the DVD? I have been thinking that would be the easy way of connecting any MP3 player.

Thanks!

I'm pretty sure that someone makes an adapter for the WJ radios. Check out Crutchfield and search your vehicle/radio.

Re: AUX Cable added (iPac-CHY) - WK

Good call not going the route that keeps you Ipod constantly charging. I made that mistake with my old 5th gen 30gb classic Ipod. Now its good for nothing but just leaving in the Jeep, which is fine with me ever since I bought a new nano for the gym and stuff.

I wont make that mistake again though. You would think with today's technology they would have some sort of way to cut power to prevent overcharging your electronics.

The nano is so much nicer for working out lol, whether I clipped it to my shorts or just put it in my pocket my 30gb would always fall out and rip the headphones out of my ears lol. It drove me nuts.

Yeah I hate using the video for working out or running. I think I'm finally motivated to get a nano/shuffle now, lol.

No prob Omar!

There are two ways I would have done this differently;

1. Do what another member here did (albeit my idea ) and fabricate a headphone jack into the console.

2. Use a retractable mechanism (similar to the retractable portable headphones) so a cord could be retracted into a space.

But this was a quick fix for a temporary aux solution.

Re: AUX Cable added (iPac-CHY) - WK

Hey Matt, will this stup work for the 6 disc cd changer? I think the Ipac i had was different and maybe i will give this route a try once i get some cash. The one that i had was a different model then yours so i dont know if your setup will work on my head unit.
