Thumbs up Ipod installation - '03 V6

If anyone is interested, I installed my ipod mini in my mustang last night. It works great, and now I have almost 1000 songs in my car.

I bought a USA Spec DF-Ford1 adapter for the back of the radio. The included cable plugs into your aux input and gives you 2 sets of RCA inputs. I then ran an RCA to 1/8" under my center console to the center console glove box. In the glove box I use a Belkin charger plugged into the aux power that is in the glove box. The Belkin charger uses the iPod 30 pin connector to plug into the iPod and not only charges you iPod but provides an 1/8" input that outputs the sound. This charger also has a preamp boost to raise the volumn too. This is where the 1/8" end of the RCA cable plugs into. Now everything is neatly hidden within the center console glove box. I may buy the cup holder for the times I don't want it to be hidden.

USA Spec DF-Ford1 adapter ($60)

Belkin Charger ($40 but you can buy on eBay for around $10 like I did)

$2 RCA to 1/8" cable available almost anywhere.

Total price to install was $72 and took about 1 hour.
