Sirius + iPod + Becker CDR 220

Sirius + iPod + Becker CDR 220


DIY – Sirius Starmate 3 and iPod Nano Installation Sorry for the poor image quality. My camcorder decided to drink some mouthwash on my last trip rendering it inop. I had to use my cell phone to take the pictures. Knowing that, I wanted to pass along a DIY job to show how I integrated my iPod and Sirius radio together with my Becker CDR-220. I do not have a factory CD changer with my Porsche, so I was able to use the “Aux-in” on the back of the radio. I purchased a PIE BLAU/8-3NPUT multi-au

Did you use the the brown wire from the phone cable for the ground? or attach the cround from the a PIE BLAU/8-3NPUT adapter to something else?

Thanks

Mike,

I did not use/splice the ground from the phone connector. I connected the grounds directly to the grounding bolt seen in the picture. I included a couple of pictures to show which ground option I used.

Sorry for the late response, but yes, this does work with the Becker 220.

So the PIE Blau connector fits the Becker 220? That would be GREAT!!

Just an update to this configuration...

I know this isn't a secret or new, but I wanted to share my recent findings.

The Sirius / Becker radio combo has been working great. I wanted to mention a recent test modification I did with the Becker / Aux cables. I recently purchased the Droid from Verizon. I use the Pandora App for the Droid at work with my 3.5mm headphones. I recalled that one of the inputs from the Aux cable mentioned in the how-to is also a 3.5mm jack.

I removed my Sirius and plugged the 3.5 mm into the headphone jack on the Droid and started Pandora..it was music to my ears, literally. I am running Pandora App through my car stereo. Additional bonuses I found. When I make or receive a phone call, Pandora stops...phone rings...I answer the call. The phone conversation comes over my car stereo. Since, the microphone on the Droid works pretty well, I can talk normally without any problems and the other end hears me just fine. End call and Pandora turns back on.
