Lightbulb Brandmotion

I tried in the past this barndmotion ipod adapter. The sound is excellent. The problem is that some 2007 cars are not fully compatible with this product, and I could not change between artist or album, or any other play list, so I return it.

The installation is not as easy as they describe, but can certainly be done by yourself. I have the shaker 1000 with satellite radio. For my setup I have to run the harness from the glove compartment to the trunk, temporarily remove the shaker and the amplifiers from the trunk in order to plug directly to the satellite receiver that is the last unit before your fender. You do not touch the center console at all. If it can work properly with your unit this is the best system because it fully integrates with the factory unit. Make sure you do the compatibility test on their website particularly for 2007 models (actually mine was supposed to be compatible but it did not work. They said it is a freak case... too bad it is a good product).

here is their website:

Maybe he's a man of few words?? LOL

I run my iPod through my aftermarket stereo thru the AUX output and its AWESOME!! A simple $5 plug from RadioShack and I was good to go! Still gotta do scrolling but, thats why I make playlists in advance before headings out

Cheapest route for ipod compatibility is to upgrade your head unit (if you were going to anyways) and get a deck that will allow direct connection thru an ipod cable. These cables usually run like 25 bucks.

I have the AUX port, but this Brandmotion thing is not the same. It fully integrates the ipod to your radio. You put your ipod in the glove compartment and you do not touch it again. (it even charges it). Price If I remember correctly is abt 200. See their website.
