Ipod for 2005 ccd

I would like to buy a cable that connects my iPod to the JVC unit that came with my trailer. Can anyone tell me what jacks are on the back? It's a CD-DVD player. There's also a cd changer unit that I am willing to sacrifice if I can use its jack for the iPod. All I know until I remove the components, is that the changer is plugged into a "cd - changer jack" (JVC support's words)! Thanks!

Our 2005 Classic came with a Sony radio/CD player. As far as I can see it has no aux input, certainly none on the front panel, and from what I see in the instruction book, I don't think there is one on the back either. Seems a bit odd in this day and age.

I have seen much cheaper automotive units that have both aux input and inputs for SD cards right on the front panel of the unit.

If the radio/cd player didn't work so well, I would swap it out for a unit with the necessary inputs on the front panel.

For now, I settle for using my ipod with one of those FM transmitters plugged into it. Works not too badly, although it has to transmit through the aluminum double skin to the radio antenna on the roof which isn't ideal.

Your best bet short of a visual inspection of the back is to search the internet for an installation manual for the unit using its model number. I suspect that the cd-changer jack may be proprietary, since it's control as well as audio.

There's all sorts of AV head units for 12v systems out these days, for those brilliant guys who drive around alone in their cars with the video screens on the backs of their headrests on, announcing to the world that they managed to buy that system before they maxed out their credit cards.

Lots of the new stuff has bluetooth, so if you have a newish iPod Touch you could make a tolerable wireless connection to them. Lots of stuff also has audio jacks and/or USB jacks on the front.

Should be a plug hole in the front for a cable to go to your iPod, at least there was on mine. Jim

I think you have the same unit we had. You can disconnect the CD player and use that input for the Ipod/Iphone, but other than that you are stuck. We chose to get rid of the whole setup and use a new JVC unit with bluetooth for connecting to our Iphone. It also has a USB front connection.

I am having difficulty connecting the TV. Still working on a solution. I will probably have to run new wires from the TV to the stereo, but will have to take down a section of the ceiling to do it.

Thanks for the input. I was hoping for a simple solution like I used in the house... A 30$ cable with RCA jacks on one end and iPod plug type connector on the other allowed me to play apple devices through 1980's Denon amp, Klipsch speakers with good results! Car stereo stuff is new territory... Guess I'll start taking apart...

If you want to use the CD player input on the JVC unit, you will have to purchase an adaptor that turns the special input plug into RCA connections. They can be had for a couple of bucks on ebay. My JVC owners manual told me the name of the adaptor. If you can't find it I could figure it out again.

Thanks for advice, all. I finally found the cable that connects the j- link port to the 30-pin on the iPod. I took out the cd changer, changed the aux input on the main unit to "line in", and plugged in! Works great through all speakers for about 40 bucks. Also, there are two wires on the cable u can install to charge the IPod while listening but I didn't feel like messing with all those harnesses just yet... Not electrically inclined!
