I have a 2007 Escape with a cd changer.
Is there a way I could just splice into the audio in lines from the cd changer and put a simple multi wire switch in from radio shack to switch from cd changer to ipod.
I dont mind having to control my ipod from the actual ipod.
Is this system realy that complicated that I must use a $120 interface?
Sorry if I missed something in all pages on this thread.
Well, not sure if its worth the trouble of trying to kludge into the harness.
For $150 from LogJam I was able to do a nice clean install with the harnesses they supply. Mine had the 16pin connector. Use the SAT button and the radio thinks your ipod is a satellite receiver. Displays text, scans, search, etc. Sounds is excellent too, true line-level sound, sooo much better than an FM modulator.
I think it was well worth it.
