Want to play all those sweet tunes in your car? Do you hate the sound quality of the FM transmitters? Perform the following steps! (Note that this was done in a 1986 Toyota MR2. Simply customizing the steps to meet your own car will make this perform in your car as well!)
- 1Buy a deck/stereo head unit with an audio in plug on the face (such as a JVC Arsenal head unit). You can also buy a cigarette lighter jack splitter to power your iPod on the go.
- 2Relocate the stock car jack/cigarette lighter to the glove box. Plug in the splitter. Your iPod charger plugs into one of the splits and the other split goes back to where your stock location was.
- 3Install the head unit and plug in a 6mm male to male audio wire into the front of the deck and run this wire, along with the car jack/cigarette lighter iPod charger, to the same spot on your car. This is the spot where you want your iPod.
- 4Plug in the charger and the audio cable to an iPod mini dock and secure the dock. Now when your iPod is on it is powered by the relocated power jack and the sound comes in through the deck. The iPod still controls the music.
