"Good interface, but a noisy FM..."3.0 starson by schmeric
Pros: Heads-up ability to view limited iPod information
Cons: Noisy wired FM connection
Summary: Great little device for connecting your iPod to the car head unit. My 2000 Lexus does not have audio inputs nor could I find an aftermarket AUD-IN converter for this model year car (they run $150 - $350 anyway), so I had to go with the wired FM. I have a Sirius radio conneced to the AUX in on the D&P and there is negligible interference when connecting to an empty FM station, but the iPod has some distortion at the higher audible frequencies. Particularly on lyrics that have a strong "S" or "F" or alot of cymbals. I'm able to work around it by using a cassette adapter and connecting it to the iPod headphone jack while it is plugged in to the D&P. Much clearer sound, you can adjust the input volume, and you can still use the D&P joystick/display. Bottom line: good interface, audiophiles will cringe (unless you can connect directly to an audio input), and the AUX in can be used for a satellite radio(it's nice to be able to electronically toggle between the two). Have a pro install it - it's worth the extra $100.
