I have a 2007 Mazdaspeed6 with the Bose system. I'm trying to connect an auxiliary input so I can run my Harmon Kardon Drive+Play iPod controller directly through the head unit rather than using the FM modulator. I've been told I can't do this and keep my Sirius. Has anyone had any success doing this? If so, how? I find it hard to believe that the "Media" button on the head unit doesn't serve a purpose.

Got new wheels for Speedy when my tires wore out. What do you think?
needs to be lowered now. not a lot, just enough to get rid of some of that wheel gap.
you should definitely come out to one of our thurs night meets. www.dfwmazdas.com

As I noted here before, I use a Mac Mini and a Mac front end called Neon BoomBox for my audio/video and I run Garmin Mobile PC under Windows XP in the VMWare Fusion virtual machine. I use a Griffin PowerMate knob to switch between the front end and the nav software running in two different virtual desktops. Previously I had the PowerMate just velcro'd to my console, but over the Thanksgiving holiday I got ambitious and made a permanent installation. After checking fit in several places, I settled on the lid of the ash tray. I cut the structure from the back of the console with a Dremel wheel and then used my handy hole saw to cut a hole for the PowerMate. Using epoxy I glued the PowerMate to the ash tray lid and reassembled the console piece. Although this method hides the cool pulsing blue light from the PowerMate when the computer is asleep I still think this looks a lot better than the previous approach. Let me know what you think.
the only thing I see that could use some polishing up is your glove box door. Are you going to leave it like that? Your craftsmanship on the rest of the project is pretty stellar!
Thanks for sharing
I didn't post any pictures, but I covered the inside of the glove box with a pocket of felt cloth. My Apple Bluetooth keyboard fits very nicely inside there when I'm not using it. I'll try to add some pictures of it sometime.
I extended the video ribbons and all wires. Only ribbon i could not find a longer version of is the button ribbon. So I decided to remove the buttons, i really didnt need them. The screens will get a very thin case and hinges to blend it into the dash.
