    Just purchased a 2010 double cab and in using my I-POD thru the AUX input, the sound quality is terrible. I searched this forum and it seems a lot of folks have the same issue. Some fixes were playing with the settings on the IPOD. Some say that doesn't work.

    My question is, has anyone used an interface unit with success and what brand? I have the factory head unit and it is equipped with the Satellite Radio option. I assume as a result, I should have an input that an interface could hook up to.

    Just looking for recommnedations on an interface that will work, and allow use of the steering wheel audio controls.

    Any suggestions?

    I have used my Aux jack for some time with no issues. Making a blanket claim that "factory decks suck" is a flawed assumption. If you are unhappy, installing an after market head unit is an option but I would not make that kind of investment simply for a new iPod interface. You could try a few other things first, like Srf4life858 suggested using a different cable. Or, if anything you plug into your Aux jack sounds poor (try multiple devices) you could contact the dealer and maybe get a warranty repair or replacement.

    You should have gotten the JBL system. It cranks. I have the satellite radio also and am told that the Ipod interface cable won't work with the SAT active. Have to do some more checking.

    Easy to install, and it lets you use your steering wheel controls.

    If you have a nav system, uses its interface. Works fine even without.

    I got mine for $115 on eBay. I'm actually going to post an install write-up once I find the time.

    I play my iPhone through it, and it's great -- except I always get the message saying that iPhone is not compatible with it -- which is BS.
