Is there a way to attach an Iphone to the standard Radio?

Recommended Posts

I know Porsche came out with an Ipod adapter ($1,100) but I am looking more to something simple like an Aux. port. I do not need an interface controlling the phone.

Outside of the Porsche iPod option (which i didn't know about until now) it seems like your options are:

FM Modulator


Dension icelink

I don' tknow if you can use the iPhone as a PHONE when connected to the dension/navtv, but I do know that the dension has a bluetooth module that you can connect a bluetooth phone to (seems rather redundant if you're directly connected to the iPhone but what do you expect..)

i think this might do the trick...buy a Garmin NUVI 660 (higher model)!

i got one because i don't have PCM but it turns out the NUVI is so good that it answers every technology need today.

1. its got a built in MP3 player (use WMP11 to sync songs or drag-n-drop)

1A. built-in mem is a joke, you'll need a SDHC card 4GB or better

2. its got an FM transmitter built in

3. its got bluetooth handsfree mobile phone interface that also controls the phone

4. it mutes songs and nav when a call comes in

5. it has live traffic warnings (subscription)

6. it still has a bunch of other features i never use, like translation dictionary, calculator,...

7. it has customizable start up splash screen, so everytime i start it up, i see a porsche logo (neat)

8. i stand corrected, it doesn't have a back-up camera =(

9. it does all this with only one cable for charger/traffic receiver- no cables if use it running on the battery

the bluetooth phone interface should work with your iphone's phone fuctions, but i'm sure it won't pass-through the ipod part. if you're in SF bay area 90.9 is the best frequency for the transmitter. auto on/off feature makes using it painless.

good luck & pass this along to anyone you think might benefit from this. i just can't say enough about the NUVI. i even use it in my suv eventhough it already has navigation because i want to avoid different databases of saved destinations
