Selling this adapter for the Ipod. It plugs into the back of most stock radios. Also has a 3.5mm plug in to plug in your phone, other MP3 player or whatever else you want to use it as. 35 dollars shipped. Here is a quick pic.

I'm interested, but I have a couple of questions. My experience with the aux input that I have is that the volume on it is very, very low due to the low voltage coming out of my MP3 player's headphone jack. Does this suffer from the same problem, or does it perform a bit of internal amplification before the signal is fed to the head unit? Also, what's the make and model of this unit?

I have one of these, which I used with the OEM head unit from a '08 Matrix and the Scion T1806. It plugs into the external CD changer plug on the back of the OEM Toyota head unit and is activated by pressing the CD button twice to switch from the in-unit CD player to the external CD changer.

It works pretty well as an AUX input for iPod (via proprietary Apple plug) and MP3 players/mobile phones (via generic 1/8" headphone plug). I use the 1/8" jack for my Droid to stream Pandora/iHeartRadio; navigate via Google Maps; and even use the speakers as a speakerphone. This device doesn't provide the OEM head unit (at least the ones I had) with any functionality to control the functions on the iPod/MP3/mobile phone.

That doesn't really tell me anything about the brand/model, but thanks for the testimony. I'll pass on this because I made some phone calls and was able to track down a cheaper replacement for the part of my Peripheral Aux2car adapter that had broken. GLWS!
