    I used mine tonight and it sounds great. I got the belkin cable and i was in my '07 Suburban with BOSE sound system. Pretty awesome. Ive also used my iPhone with a cassette adapter and sound is very good too. The poorest sound quality is with teh cigarette plug fm modualtor. i live in a large metropolitan area and its area to get a station with no interference, but it works ok much of the problem is because the plug keeps popping out.

    The sound should be as good as your speakers and head unit allow. i got a cheap adapter and it doesnt really effect the quality. The only thing that would make the biggest difference i think would be the speakers you are using. LOL dont waste your money on a expensive adapter, it reminds me of the test they showed on engadget with monster cables and coat hangers.

    Sound is excellent, for playing music, taking calls while plugged in hands free, playing a drum beat, guitar if jailbroken out your big speakers lol

    Makes it so much more worth it

    Yes I agree with everybody, I use it also that way no need for expensive adapter. I wasn't sure if the output of the headphone jack would be enough for the aux input, as normaly aux needs around 200 mV but no problem works great. Plus you can control the volume through the phone also.
    Don't be shy if I helped you use the Thanks button, I do it.

    I use my iPhone with the aux input in my Camry. No problem at all.

    I had problems with the power adapter introducing noise into my music from electrical interference, but today I got the Griffin PowerJolt power adapter and there is no interference at all.

    I have been using mine for about a year now with my ipod and now since december with my Iphone and I love it sounds great I use it when I'm on the phone in the car. Only downside is when taking a call the person on the other end can hear them selves sometimes but really I don't care if they can hear them selfs or not lol.

    Not to hijack the thread, but how does one keep coverflow on when plugged into an acc jack? When I plug into the dice jack on my bmw it goes to ipod mod and the coverflow goes away. Sometime the coverflow stays on and I lose steering wheel control of the iphone, but that ok if I can gett it to stay on!

    There is no need for an adapter, just sand off the plastic around the mini-jack to a cone off any $1 cable and it will fit fine. Sound quality is excellent, even using this cheap cable, but then again my car stereo is pretty good.

    @jglover i have the same problem and stopped using the dice in my x5, and switched to straight aux, iŽd rather have coverflow.

    I hooked mine up using the headphone jack-AUX input cable. I just shaved the plug down with a razor blade till it fit. But I just ordered THIS to tidy things up a bit .

    I got my iPhone connected to my aux connector in my car stereo and the sound was awesome, also i got to answer a couple of calls while I was driving and the sound was flawless, the only problem was that I got to put the phone near by to speak.

    If I use a dock connector plug to the aux in on my stereo will the ringer/speaker phone still play through my car speakers like it does thru the headphone line out?

    NM guess it doesnt matter since the SendStation pocketdock line out that I ordered wont fit with my Switcheasy capsule case , so I'm sending the pocketdock back.
