    In my 08 DC I have the stock JBL head unit with a Ipod interface. My Interface I have will not work with my Iphone to get Pandora :/ So here is my Question: Is there a Ipod interface that has both AUX and 32pin Apple cable? I would like to keep my steering wheel controls when the Ipod is connected.

    Note: My interface is from 2008. no brand name on the wires or box. :confused:

    You can have it all and make it look sweet - there are a ton of good install threads on here. I learned a lot on here, then tore into my dash.

    I have the PA15-TOY and an iSimple is335 mounted on my dash in the blank opposite my 4wd switch. I ran the iPod cabe to the slot next to my AT shifter in the console. It works perfect with my '08 JBL stock system. Pandora displays titles and artist, and I have an AUX input for anything that can plug in via the 3.5mm jack on its separate channel. :woot:

    just ordered PA15-TOY off Amazon and paid for over night. I hope the Iphone will still work with the new IOS when that drops soon, or the new Iphone. There is a lot of chatter that the new Iphones will have new style plug.

    It is just as loud and clear as the factory stereo. Most folks were having issues with the stock AUX input not being very loud.

    Anyone use the Bluetooth BT35-TOY adapter from USA SPEC? I was looking at their site the other day and saw it. I have the PA15 now and it's great for my ipod but now that I have an HTC phone I'm looking for alternatives that might control that.

    Up date. USA 15 is in my 08 it is working with ios5.1.1 and the aux is working grate for the misss androd. We are both happy for now.

    I did look at the wireless bluetooth set up. The abillity to have a aux was more Inportent to me. bluetooth will suck your battery dead faster then an aux port. I did think about it for a long time. I use my smart phone all day so battery is always low by the time I'm in my truck to go home.

    Both have there ups and downs.

    Thanks to all the ppl that helped me out with my truck.

    So after all this the news is showing the new Iphone with a new style plug, good thing the AUX line works like a champ. All rumors until apple shows us the real one.


    Side note VZW keeps slowing my streaming speeds on my phone. Pandora trips out after about 30mins or so. I'm in the top 5% of 3G users at only 3giges a month.

    I'm sure USA Spec will offer a cable to work with the new iPhone that plugs into the PA-15 just like the current one does..

    I have had my usa-spec about a month now and started to have some problems with with it. My iphone4 and Ipod are both in good working order so here is the problem.

    1# After about a week of use work and back the usa-spec will not pick my iphone4 and Ipod. I have to reset them and then it will work, or use the AUX line if im in a rush.

    2# After doing several resets and usa-spec will not pick my iphone4 and Ipod I have to unplug the usa-spec box for about 10min and plug it back in and then it works.

    I have called usa-spec about this and there ppl seam to be aware of the problem but have no real fix.
    Is any one having this problem..

    Mine seemed a little spotty at first. The connection had rattled loose where it plugs into my stock head unit. I pressed everything tight and it has been perfect ever since.

    :notsure:
