    Suggestions for iPod in 97 CR-V

    Hello All

    Here is my setup:

    - 1997 Honda CR-V
    - 4th gen 20gb iPod
    - Pioneer KEH-P5800 head unit in dash

    Being a newbie, I've done some research about how I can connect my iPod to my Honda CR-V. Here are some of my thoughts:

    *I'm on a budget (as cheap as possible w/ decent sound)
    *I don't want to use an FM transmitter
    *I don't want to use a tape deck system

    From what I've heard/read, I can connect my iPod using the following:

    - mini stereo headphone jack-to-stereo RCA cable or mini stereo-to-mini stereo cable
    - line-level audio output adapter (eg. Sik Imp)
    - interface adapter
    (Source: CNET Weekend Project )

    How would I got about doing this and what components should I use?

    Thanks
    DP

    Cool! Thanks for the suggestion. What are my options if I want to be able to charge my iPod while it's in my car? I don't mind having to control the whole system from my iPod.

    Ahhh the power of mega buck advertising on a mindless american public.

    The IPOD the $200 answer to the 15 cent CD R/RW disk.

    Sell the Pod on the bay, save $100 bucks on Adaptors Burn some MP3 disks and then take the $300 or more bucks you saved and buy something useful, like new tires or somthing.

    IPODS are money traps, just like cell phones they were designed with one purpose and one only (Well the cell phone actually provides a valuable service) So I'll rephrase IPODS like Cellular telephone service plans were designed with only one purpose and one only. That is to seperate you from your money.

    And talk about sucking up money. Last week we had a PC come in for repair. This machine had 4,600 Itunes downloads on it. Now do the math if each Itunes song download costs 99 cents...........

    In summary...

    So this is what it looks like I need to get:

    -1/8" to RCA adapter (~$10)
    -Pioneer CDRB10 (~$40)
    (-Perhaps a charger (~$20))

    So when I do get my parts, how do I connect them to my head unit? Do I just unscrew the head unit and look for the appropriate jacks/ports in the back?

    Any other suggestions or more competitive products/better prices?

    When you take out your headunit there will be a square connector on the back of the pioneer headunit, just plug the CDRB10 into that.

    Pioneeer Headunit > CDRB10> 1/8" to RCA> iPod

    BTW you can find a CDRB10 alternative on eBay for half the price http://cgi.ebay.com/Auxiliary-Input-...QQcmdZViewItem.
