BrandMotions iPod Adapter

Just got off the phone with BrandMotion and I ordered thier new iPod adapter. Not the Railport one. It is shipping today and I will still be able to use the DVD player and changer...... I cannot wait!!! I will let everyone know how it goes with istallation etc.

PS It was very reasonable priced compared to the other aftermarket items out there that I researched.

It is not on thier website yet. It should be tonight or later this week, but BrandMotion is a sponsor of this forum so it should be on this site.

I looked it up and the website is already updated
http://www.brandmotion.com/products/...port-ipod.html

I specifically asked if I will lose my in-dash 6 disc system, or DVD controls. and the answer was no plus I can still add satellite (sp) radio if I want.

Why only 2005 and up?

Does anyone know why they start with 2005 up to 2008 models. Will this system work with 2004?

Does this work with any MP3 player or only the iPod.

I would guess just the iPod as it has a proprietary connector that allows it to be controlled by an external device like a car stereo or home dock. Other MP3 players have different connectors, mostly USB based, as interfaces for uploading. Some aftermarket car audio can work with these, but the iPod interface is the one mfg's like to integrate because it has over 70% market share. Everyone else uses different protocols, none the same, so there are dozens, if not hundreds, of standards for connecting out there.

I know that the 04 radio was from one supplier (Visteon) and then mid cycle, Ford moved to another ( Delphi). that may be why.
but..... I have an 04 and they said it will work. So i will let everyone know if it is compatible with 04's

I didn't know you could control the iPod with the stereo controls. That's pretty cool.

I was thinking more of a 1/8 jack to connect any device to that would play using the 'AUX' button on my stereo. Anything like that?
