Not another Aux Input question.. POWER?
Okay, I just installed a Ice-Link in my '01 325Cic and a mini ipod for my fiance. I have an X5 with the Aux input and a Belkin charger (the one with the audio output by the plugin) in the footwell.
The end result was in my X5 I can control the Ipod from the mount right next to the radio. From the 325Cic, the Ice-Link disables the control of the Ipod and I have to use the radio to use it.
Both work fine, but I like the X5 setup better. When you're used to using the Ipod, I don't think it's any more distracting than the radio or NAV (IMO)
So --- Can I do the same thing in the '01 325Cic? Here's the problem. I know Blitzsafe sells an aux input for the '01 325 that plugs into the changer just like the Ice-Link, BUT that will not provide the Ipod with power...
Is there a device that will give me aux input AND power from the CD Changer wires? I have not been able to find this anywhere. This way, I could have run a Belkin charger to the power and use the port on that to plug into the RCA's...
The other alternative would be for Ice-Link to give a hack or option to "re-enable" ipod based control. That would be nice too. I may have to go to an '02 or later deck though to just have the AUX appear on the deck..
