Ok - this might be a mini mod..
I purchased the cable and connected my Iphone 4 to the Jensen. This DID allow me to play my Ipod Tunes thru the deck and see what the artist / song was on the Jensen unit. I was also able to skip songs etc.
UNFORTUNATELY - this cable does NOT seem to charge the Iphone 4 due to some incompatibility. If it were not for this - I would rate this mod a complete success.
As it is - it was a $20 cable and plugged right in. I was able to route it out thru the black plug above the coin tray. I haven't been able to see if it would be more compatible with an older Iphone or Ipod.
Anyone else know anything about this?
Now the other downside is this just continued to expose how crappy the stock speakers are. I think new speakers in the ceiling are going to be mod 4.. They seem to be a bit of a challenge - since they are so small (only about 3" diameter) and so many (9 speakers). I'm going to look for something that keeps the stock look and perhaps grills - but sounds significantly better. Perhaps adding a subwoofer under that sofa.
Bottom line - you can't go wrong for $20..
