New AUX-POD auto integration kit released

Pacific Accessory Corporation has released the AUX-POD auto integration kit for iPod 3G and iPod mini. The AUX-POD allows you to “change tracks on your iPod from the factory radio or steering wheel (vehicles with audio controls on steering wheel). The AUX-POD automatically turns off the iPod when the radio is out of AUX-mode or when vehicle/radio is turned off. The iPod also charges the iPod when connected to the AUX-POD. The AUX-POD consists of an AUX-BOX Universal Auxiliary Audio Input interface and an Apple iPod interface connector. To use the AUX-BOX with your vehicle, you will need to order a specific vehicle harness also. Use the application guide to see if there is a harness available for your vehicle.” Retail price for the AUX-BOX is $200. Check the website for a dealer near you.

That Sucks!  No support for Hyundai, Saturn or about half the cars on the road!  I’ll just keep waiting for Alpine, thank you.

This is not as good as the Dension iceLink solution. First, it only supports factory stereos. Second, it only supports certain brands and models. Check out [url=http://www.densionusa.com]http://www.densionusa.com[/url] to see a better solution, especially considering it includes a cradle.

I had one installed in my Escalade. It skips every 20 minutes, regularly. The garage where I had it installed can’t seem to fix the problem. The ipod works fine on my home stereo, so I’m stumped.

Anyone has install a “PAC Aux-Pod iPod Interface/Controller” on a Jeep 2004, It should work with the steering wheel controls, right?, the “PAC AB-CHR10 Auxiliary Input Adapter” is the right cable to connect the Aux-Pod to the radio.
Mine has the”“disc” button, but no cd-changer installed.

I recently had this unit installed in my 2003 Chevy Impala. Long story short; if you drive a Chevy DO NOT purchase this unit. (Note: this unit is now called IPOD2CAR.) The unit drained my battery dead twice. PAC was nice enough to send me a newer replacement unit, but, it drained by battery even faster. It’s all been removed, and I’m out all the installation fees. Perhaps it works better in other manufacturers’ cars, but stay away if you drive a Chevy!
