    I have a 2008 tacoma sport and i just bought a ipod adapter from best buy not realizing that having a radio that had an AM/SAT button was a requirement for it to work. is there any way i can get it to work without?
    i dont want to have to take it back.
    thanks
    matt.

    with my ipod adapter you just push the disc button to go to the aux input. then push it again for the regular cd player

    I just picked up a bluetooth streamer to plug into my aux jack. Works like a charm.

    Did the pa15-toy on the wife's car. Controls for the ipod are lacking enough where the aux is passable.
    THe bluetooth seems louder than the aux jack did, but that might be my phone, vs the bluetooth amplifying it.

    Which bluetooth did you go with?

    I have the USA SPEC PA15-Toy in my truck and my wife has SYNC in her Fusion. The SYNC/Fusion is louder, but it's louder in general. I will probably stick with the PA15 for the charging capability, but it would be nice to have a bluetooth to put in rentals and work vehicles.

    After a bunch of searching I could only find one dongle that wouldn't need to be re-paired each time (at least with my phone). The blackberry one. Drawback is, it needs to be powered. No battery. No big deal. But works like a charm. Turn on pandora, turn on the key, about 3-10 seconds later its out the speakers.
    And it is definitely louder than using my phone's aux jack.
