Gday guys,

I'am looking to buy an auxiliary input cable for my BA and i am aware of the ford offerings that use the headphone jack and have either the amplifier module or not, but has anyone used or had experience with this setup....

I have fitted the Ford ipod player,and while you are at it get and install their bluetooth phone rig at the same time.In fact they integrate with each other.

my misses has the ford $30 one (not amplified) and it does what it should...
the only problem is it doesnt charge the ipod (same with the one in your link) so im thinking of getting one of these (below) which would physically look the same as the above one (wouldnt need two cables plugged into the ipod and i would remove the cigarette lighter plug and connect it to a Acc wire in the dash)

(would also require the ford loom)

Cheers Cam

I was thinking of buying the amplified ford one but i wanted one that would charge at the same time. The one i have linked uses the dock/charger connecter so i am not entirely sure whether its the real deal or just a scam...

i have asked the seller so will know soon lol

trust me... fork out the extra for the ford amplified version.
i first got a cheap one and it did the job, but you have to turn the car volume up to at least 20+ with the ipod up full volume and even then its not all that loud

now ive got the amplified one and its much much better

The plug for the cigarette lighter is not expensive, and you already have the lead to transfer the music from your computer to ipod,so use that to charge on the run.
