Zune Connection Options

I've spent the last hour or so looking through this forum trying to find a clear explanation of the "best" way to connect a Zune to the stock stereo...

I've kind of gathered that you have to pull the HU unit out, connect a wire to the aux import, then drill a whole out of the console somewhere, right? Is there a better way to do this?

I'd like for it to charge while playing, does this make it a lot more complicated???

Yeah, I am a noob, but I have recently come to the realization that I despise my FM transmitter which I currently have for my Zune. Any help would be greatly appreciated-even if you just point me to a good thread with this already answered. Thanks!

That's pretty much it.
I have the Soundgate adapter in my truck. Works great and it does charge it while you have it hooked up.
I just notched my center console by the little pocket up front (manual transmission), you can't even see it when it's all together.
I'll get you a pic here in a minute....

View from the drivers seat....



And if you get down and look you can see where I notched it for the cable...
(sorry the flash makes it a little hard to see)



hope this helps!

Would this allow you to use the controls on the stereo to control the songs like skip and fast forward? And what cable are you using?

I honestly can't remember, it's been a few years... I will look for the reciept later but if you search for Soundgate Toyota Adapter on the internet you should come up with something. Super easy install and I think there is another thread on here that shows a good wire to tap into to get power.
