install ipod via tape deck wiring

i have been looking around for a solution for connecting my io, and found this: http://www.bmwtips.com/tipsntricks/M...e%20inputs.htm

I just have the standard non-dsp with cassette deck and cd changer.. Would it be possible to do this on my stereo?



Regards,

Tom.

Since you don't have DSP, just use the blitzsafe adapter. I might even have one to sell that's just sitting around in my garage.

I may be interested in the blitzsafe you have. How much would it go for? Is it everything required to hardwire the ipod by using the CD player input?

Yes it is. I'll have to find it first though so let me get back to you maybe tomorrow. I'd say 50 bucks plus shipping would cover it.

Side note:

Many after-market stereo units are coming with aux-inputs, some with plugs in the back, many with aux jack in the front. Just put one (Pioneer) in my Toyota...love it !!!

My M3 I like my Phatbox linked to factory stereo.

In general I love the digital gadgetry of all sorts

Not the BMW one. You can add an Alpine CD Changer though.

When we did the tape deck input, its was a kludge since nothing else was out there about 3 yrs ago. I would sacrifice the CD changer and just stick with the blitzsafe. Its a much cleaner install and it sounds way better.
