ok, i just wanted to post what i did... to help those that want to install their ipod to their OEM bose system and keep their satellite radio.....
here's my setup
bose system, non-nav
sirius satellite, OEM
....so i read all the posts and i wanted to install my ipod but still keep my sirius satellite, so i could listen to HOWARD STERN!
this is what i bought.
1. PAC AAI-NIS2 (MP3car.com)
2. Belkin Auto Kit for iPod w/ Dock Connector F8V7058-APL (Fry's)
3. Y Audio cable (radioshack)
4. Car Power Adapter with Battery Clips (radioshack)
i basically followed the steps to remove the headunit from one of the threads here, plugged in the pac aai-nis2 to the radio (following the steps on the installation manual it came with), connected the rca part of the y audio cable to the rca (aux 1) on the pac aai-nis2, connected the other end of the y cable to to the belkin charger, plugged in the belkin charger to the CAR power adapter (i removed the battery clips so i could hardwire it), hardwired the power adapter to the cigarette lighter, then stuffed it all back in and ran the belkin dock connector/ipod connector out to the driver's side and plugged the ipod!!!! (phew!!!)....
to listen to the ipod, you basically hit the radio button on the head unit till SR2 comes up and then keep it on preset number 1. you cant control the ipod though through the steering wheel controls though but thats ok cuz its easier to scroll through the songs anyways on the ipod itself(faster??) and i keep the satellite!!!.....yipee
do u guys want pics of the install???? let me know cuz i can easily redo it and make a DIY!
here's the final product....just need the proclip!
problems......you have to compromise really to keep satellite radio
1. cant control ipod through steering wheel
2. the belkin charger....will constantly charge the ipod...which isnt gud on its battery
3. the sound from the ipod will only come out once a satellite signal is picked up...so you cant play the ipod at first if you have no clear satellite signal (like in the garage)....but once the signal is picked up, the ipod will still play even after you're parked in the garage (kinda weird)
1. ipod plus one more aux for whatever other mp3 player you want to hear through your car speakers
2. keep OEM satellite radio
3. ipod stays charged when engine is on and stops charging when engine off
oh well whatever you decide, there are always compromises...i guess....enjoy!
