    Re: Aux Jack input

    I briefly read over this thread as I just began doing research to install an aux jack. I have a completely stock 2000 Eldorado ETC with the Bose system. No changer, but a single cd player (and cassette) in the dash. Only 18,000 miles too.....so I'm wanting to be very clean in any changes I make to the vehicle.

    My question is....is all the information I need for a Bose system displayed above as well? I skimmed over it and saw non-bose, and did not see the exact control panel as I have installed. So basic question without reading over all the details, sorry.

    Also, I see a lot of different/similar models together. Which model is most like a 2000 Eldorado ETC for reference purposes?

    Thanks for any help!!

    Read the part where it says: "IF you have BOSE non NAV then here:"

    I have a $15 Phillips cassette adapter that makes the $25 Monster sound like mud.

    The gold plating does essentially nothing for sound quality, and don't get me started on Beats.

    I actually paid 5$ for a brand new monster in my opinion sounds a little cleaner than the philips one atleast on bass that is since i hear a lot of hip-hop :\

    Hmm, odd. I actually returned, and got a second monster, thinking I got a bad one. Same thing. What are you using as a player?

    I think I've already done what you're looking to do, modded the ash tray so my iPod fits perfect Soon to be replaced with the circuit N* has designed though, get just a tiny tiny amount of interference with this method.

    O.K., I mentioned that I did this in post #15:

    You still need to do the N*Caddy mod to your headunit to get the wires for my system. I am no N*Caddy, so I don't have diagrams. But, here are the details. For my system to work you need a 4PDT relay (to replace the two micro relays) and a DavidNavone.com Speaker Sensing Auto Switching Circuit part#N-902. I use the N-902 to sense an input from my CarPC (in your case the iPod), i.e., whenever its on and playing it sends a signal to the relay which switches the input from the OEM source to my Aux source.










    N-902 Description: "This new device was designed to supply +12 volts to activate aftermarket
    components with OEM decks that do not have electric antenna control leads. The N-902
    works by sensing speaker voltage from terminals of a readily available speaker. When the
    speaker voltage is present, the circuitry activates and +12 volts DC IS produced on the
    green wire."
    Attach the wires from the head unit and iPod to the relay. Use the green wire from the N-902 to trigger the relay to activate the switch to the Aux-In.


    I was initially concerned if this would work with the weak headphone signal of the CarPC, but it works like a charm. Activation is almost instantaneous and deactivation is on a 10-15 second timer. So my system has the added benefit of allowing the CarPC to "say" turn by turn directions over the OEM source and then go away till the next directions are spoken. I also wanted to maintain as much of my stereo separation as possible so the N-902 is only connected to one channel and all channels have separate signal and common. (N*Caddy ties his commons together, I don't)


    The downside is I have to have 12V to the relay and the N-902, but in your case you need power so you can add a powered USB Hub and also power your iPod. (Be careful which iPod adapter you choose - some don't charge while in use.)


    Hope that makes sense.

    Yup, iPhone 4 fits perfectly in the ashtray once the metal cigarette holder thing is removed.
    Only with my plan there won't even be a cord sticking out at all that you have to plug in anywhere.

    I think I understand most of the above, but I don't think that will work for my situation. I still need an actual switch to flip to activate the input signal. I want to mount the connector for the bottom of the phone at the rear of the ashtray so I can slide the phone in and it connects and charges. And if I want to, I can flip the switch and listen to it too.

    But I want to be able to plug it in and listen to the radio or cd or changer still also, and still have the phone charging. I hope that makes sense.

    I'm not sure if a manual switch replaces the relays, or if it replaces the additional pins on the 3.5mm jack, or something else...

    Re: Aux Jack input

    My plan makes it kinda a pain to skip tracks and such...
    With iPhone plugged into the bottom of the ashtray like that

    The more I think about it, the idea of controlling it with the steering wheel sounds better and better
    I don't really want to sacrifice the cd changer, but I just might have to

    Man, I'm really unsure about all of it now
