    2007 Hyundai Sonata Aux Input (noob question)

    Hi everyone,

    I'm new here, and new to car audio in general, so I would appreciate any advice you all can offer.

    Just bought a new 2007 Hyundai Sonata. Love the car, but one problem:
    no auxiliary input to the stereo for an ipod.

    So I went to Circuit City and they have aux input adapters for many cars - but none for Hyundai.

    Is there any way to add a aux input to the stock radio on this car?

    If not, I know I could buy a new stereo, but the Hyundai has this huge dash area. You can see the dash in this thread:

    So what do I do, get a grey "faceplate" to take up that space?
    Can I trust people at BestBuy/Circuit City to do this right?

    Also, I know that there are audio-specific forums, but I came here because of the above post about the 07 Sonata, and these forums seem pretty active.
    Thanks in advance for any advice.

    circuit city and best buy have crappy selections for aux in pieces, check pac-audio, crutchfield and other online vendors. essentially you'll have to have a factory radio that can have a factory external cd changer hooked up to it or sat radio piece etc the aux in module just tricks the radio to thinking its playing a factory cd changer or whatever and allows the sound to play through. if your radio is not equipped like that you can't do much except replace it, unless you're factory amped, then there is another option, but regardless its called a dash kit, they're generally black and yes you'll need one, as well as a harness, to install an aftermarket headunit.

    Thanks Justin,

    Is it fairly easy to get the radio out to inspect it?

    I've never taken a radio out of a car before.
