    I think this looks like a fair price compared to what I have seen everywhere else. Installation looks easy and all the features are exactly what I'm looking for. I dont think there will be a problem running it with the JBL amp/sub system and 6 disc changer.

    Any input on whether i should go for it or not or if it would even work in my truck would be appreciated. :D

    Just a heads up for anyone with (or intending on getting) a late 2008 Ipod or new iphone. This adapter and/or almost all the existing docks, inputs and chargers won't charge the new ipods/iphones.

    With the newest Ipods/iphone Apple switched the pin configuration and the older docks etc will still play music from the newer units they will not charge the unit.

    I just went through this problem with my wife's new 4th gen Ipod nano. People on Apples forums are more than just a little ticked off.

    Pretty much only products released in the last few months are compatible with the new Apple standard.

    P.S. The older equipment will still play the music as long as your Ipods batteries last.

    Search around... That's the ipod2car and should be the PXDP unit.

    Search Ebay for "PXDP" and you'll find the same thing for $99. You'll have to compare shipping charges & all that garb.

    I have the PXDP and have a 2007 ipod Classic 80 gig and an older 4gig nano.

    Here's a write-up on how to install it:

    Note: If you flip dipstick #6 - the volume will be higher.
