Hi,

I'm trying to figure out the best way to attach my iPod to my BMW. Currently, I'm using a cassette adapter, which is a bit clunky. I'd like to simply plug my iPod into a dock or similar connector and have it play through the stereo.

I have found a variety of auxiliary input connectors that run through the factory CD changer interface. My car has a CD changer in the trunk and I'd like to keep it. I was thinking of possibly installing a switch which would allow me to pick either the CD changer or the AUX input. Imagine a switch taking as input two CD-changer cables, one coming from the factory CD changer and the other from the AUX input converter. The switch output connects to the stereo head unit.

Does this seem like a reasonable thing to do?

Any other ideas, besides a cassette adapter or fm modulator?

Thanks,
Jason

Hey Jason, you might look online for Blitzsafe adaptors. They will most likely have what your lookin for. I think I recall someone around here having a spliter/aux-in adaptor from them.
