What I've noticed is the port itself (at least in my truck) is the source of most of my noise. I bought a ground loop cord from Radio Shack and while it does get rid or a bit it is not all. My wifes minivan is even worse using the aux port for my sirius anyway. She at the very least has Bluetooth so I can do my iPhone that way. I have a couple noise filters like the ones that come on computer monitors but have not put them on yet to see if there is a difference. I am toying around with putting a seperate ground on it to see if that makes a diff.Do any of you know if getting a better quality cord would increase the quality of music coming from my iPhone when plugging it in thru the aux jack? I love using my iPod on my stock deck, but hate the degraded sound quality.
I don't have the SAT feature either and I plug my external Sirius radio into the AUX port. Works fine. The only issue I had was the first patch cord had a "fat" plug and the dimple around the AUX port prevented it from fully inserting. I got a cord with a skinnier plug and it seats properly in the jack.Well, that pretty much confirms what I originally thought. I don't have the sat feature on my radio so I am not sure if the ipod interface will work for me either.
I don't get much background noise/feedback as much as the quaility and sound volume is so poor.
I listen to Pandora using my droid and a cheap a$$ cable. It sounds pretty good.the best way to increase the quality of sound coming from an ipod/iphone is to use less compression. Unless you have a $.99 flea bay special cord that is picking up lots of EMI/RF from your truck, a new cord will probably not make a noticeable difference.
this sounds like something i might be getting. first i need to get my aux jack fixed. the signal drops in/out like there is a connector malfunction on the back of the faceplate. thanks for the product link.Amazon.com: SendStation PDLO-MiU5 PocketDock Line Out Mini USB Adapter for iPhone, iPod, and iPad - Black: Electronics
The quality is night and day different.
