    I love how they sell these cables in 3' and 6' segments. Like I need a cable that reaches all the way to the bed of the truck thru the sliding window. I've been looking for a 12" cable, my 3' is just too long.

    Yeah, a male-male aux. cable is all you need. However, be warned that it pretty much sucks. The input level is so low that you have to crank the volume on your iPod AND truck radio WIDE OPEN to be able to hear it above the road noise at highway speeds - and even then it may not be loud enough. I've downloaded a few podcasts that were recorded a little lower than normal and I just had to turn them off because I couldn't hear them above the road noise. It's pretty annoying. Yet another reason to ditch the POS factory radio for a decent one... but I haven't done it yet.

    The sound with my Zune HD isn't bad. Could be better, but it's tolerable, even with the pod casts.

    Got one for my wife's Zune and max sound no matter what the volume is on the device. I assume the I-pod version will do the same.

    YES!!! This drives me INSANE for the exact same reasons you stated. did you figure out how to work around it yet? i really don't want to get a new head unit (or the JBL factory), but if i can't access my ipod then what's the point of the auxilary jack.

    as a mater of fact, in my old vehicle i used to use the aux jack to make phone calls with my blackberry and it was amazing (no bluetooth nonesense, just line out/line in), but because of the low aux jack i don't even bother to use it.

    any advice would help, and i am glad i am not the only one annoyed by this.

    I saw someone had found an app for the blackberry that cured the low audio, or at least improved it. I like pandora in my truck, but I need to have the volume at max and it is barely loud enough to be heard over the road noise

    Do you know if either of these will work for any MP3 Player? Say, a Sony?

    Where did you see that App? Have you used it?

    Just FYI.. Dusty (my 09 taco) has had nothing but radio problems. My radio kept shutting off for no reason after a month of buying him. So I went and had a new one ordered. Well after waiting almost 9 months to have the radio finally come in, the dealership put the new one in. Well my radio that had kept turning off problem went away and now there is a problem with my auxillary port. For a few weeks now when I am playing my iPod, the radio will switch from aux to the radio automatically. Then the trouble shooting started. I started to experiment with the cord itself and see if the cord was the problem by using another one....it wasnt. So then I started to move the male end component around the port some, I would then push the aux button and it would start playing my ipod again. Then the next day the same crap would happen. So I decided to get to the auxillary port (which was insane trying to get to, be prepared to remove your ENTIRE center upper and lower console, and radio assembly just to get to this little bastard). When I finally made it there I found a little metal tab appeared to be cracked at the base and bent so it was resoldered. Now take note, all the little metal tabs appeared to be bent. So being bent MIGHT be normal. This girl is not an electrician so I am just guessing. lol. I am about to go test it and see if that fixed the problem. I will let you know.

    -----Yep....it worked. So if your aux port starts shutting off for no reason, get it out and solder it.
