For Ipod owners who use the AUX jack

When I first got my Ipod and a Belkin jack to connect it to the car, I was like...."..this is great!" After a while I started noticing that the sound wasn't so great even though I had awesome CD quality music on my Ipod. Then the jack started to screw loose....and the sound went to hell. On one minute, off one speaker the next.....etc

The solution:

- Order the adapter from www.sendstation.com (w/ audio out and either usb or firewire) - approx. $37 (shipping included)
- Buy a gold plated Jack from Radio Shack - approx. $11.95

TOTAL = less than $50

This is the best solution next to hardwiring an Ipod MOST system from BMW (which is upwards of $650), installing a new radio, etc....THE SOUND IS AWESOME.

Hope this helps! :rocks:

p.s. There have been posts on this before....this stands as another testimonial that it works great!!!!

Belkin vs Monster?

Which is better, the Belkin or Monster? I had the belkin car charger with the line out, but the pre-amp thing that's built in made noise on the line out that I could hear. Does the Monster have that preamp too?

read the sticky right at the top of this forum. You will find tons of info. Most people, prefer the Monster. Many complaints with belkin stuff
