    Looking to put an interface into the 08 so I can run both mp3 files as well as bluetooth from my iPhone 4.
    Naturally, aux inputs on stock head units didn't materialize until 09. I've read countless threads here, and Grom keeps coming up time and time again. I've been online, researched what I need, and even chatted with one of their online techs to make certain I had chosen correctly for everything I wanted. The install looks like I could do this in my sleep, so that's not an issue.
    HOWEVER,....the fact their webpage contains countless spelling errors, and a lot of what might best be described as "engrish", has me a little hesitant to slap down the credit card # for these guys. Perhaps this little red flag is not justified, but I want to get feedback from anyone who has dealt directly with them, be it positive or negative, as well as hear any other suggestions for similar products in lieu of Grom in case something superior has since come out that I've missed in the vast sea of info on this.

    Thanks guys for any intel.

    My experience with Grom was very positive. At one point I tried to make the device work in a 2011 model (which it was not certified to do) and they were helping me to see if it could be done. I consider that pretty good customer service (since I was trying to do something they didn't list as compatible). I ended up pulling the device, but not because of Grom support (they might have it working by now), I'm just really impatient and so I bought & DIY installed the OEM iPod box. The Grom unit worked really well and I would buy from them again if what they had met my needs.
