Q: How do I get my iPod to play in my Jeep? A:That depends on a few things, namely what features you are looking for and what stereo you have. Read the following questions to get a better idea of what option is right for you. Q: I want all the bells and whistles! But I don't want to change my factory deck... A: You need what is known as an iPod Controller. It's a device which plugs into your factory deck as if it were a CD changer and allows the CD changer controls to operate the iPod. Depending on which model of stereo you have, you will be able to control the volume, track changing, playlist selection, and other functions. If you have the steering wheel controls, they will also work. You will be able to charge the iPod from this connection. Mopar makes one, as do several other companies. Q: I want to be able to control the iPod, but I want an aftermarket deck A: Plenty of aftermarket stereo makers offer iPod connectivity. Alpine for example includes iPod support on almost all of their decks in 2006, all you need to add is a cable to connect the iPod and you have full control and charging from the deck. Older alpine models required an external controller box, but got the same functionality. Other manufacturers have similar interfaces to the iPod. Q: I don't want to spend that much money, I just want to be able to play the iPod. A: If you are willing to sacrifice the controls of the iPod, you can get an auxiliary input adapter for either a factory or aftermarket deck. That adapter will allow you to plug your device in via a pair of RCA cables or a 1/8" stereo headphone-style jack. All control will need to be done via the portable device. Q: Why don't I just get one of those FM transmitter thingies? A: Because they sound terrible. Q: I don't have an iPod, I have [insert competing mp3 player brand here]. Can I still use it? A: If you go with the auxilliary input adapter you will. Any of the other choices that involve controlling the portable device will not work, however. Some adapters for the iPod also include an aux input jack for use with other devices (but why pay extra for the iPod interface if you aren't going to use the controls?) Q: What are some specific products I might look into? A:Here are a few: iPod Control Products for Factory Stereos(Charging, playlist control, etc): Mopar iPod Integration Kit (discussion here). This is an iPod control interface for factory chrysler stereos.
