Do you mean iPhone/ipod?

If so there are plenty of kits going for around $80US-$199US that you replace your 6 Stacker CD changer with an Aus out cable, or Iphone cable. this however, makes the stacker useless but lets be honest, not many people are still burning CD's...

I use a Grom to replace the CD changer in the rear and copy MP3 files onto a 16G jumpdrive.

The Auxiliary input is a very simple and straight forward install. The hardest part in my situations was installing the individual tangs in the connector, which was still pretty easy.

This is only possible with a 6 CD changer correct? Do you still have steering wheel controls?

The CD Changer is unplugged and the grom is installed in its place. The steering wheel still control the volume and allows you to skip or go back on the tracks.

You will need to get an App if you want to stream audio from your Android Phone to the Grom and your Android phone has to be running a later version of Android, early phones may not work.
