Guys, should I be pursuing this or am I wasting my time/money?

I've already got a Belkin tunebase for my ipod, but I notice an improvement in sound quality when I go back to the RADIO! I need a direct input, and I don't want to have to buy a new head unit to get it(or modify my own as previously mentioned)!

If you have questions about my method, feel free to ask.

It looks hard from the amount of stuff you have to rip apart, but it'* not really that technical.

You sort of put together a "how-to manual" too right?

Welcome back aCid,, just a question for ya, what are the chances that a few of us could gather up the material needed to do this mod, and have a sort of mini meet this summer, and you could supervise this retro fit, so to speak?

Is that possible? A few people have showed interest, but it'* not something I feel comfortable doing on my own, even though you have very good detailed write up.

Can you give it some thought?

Thanks.

Talk to me in at least a month from now and we'll see how things are then.

But probably no problem.

It'* better than an FM Transmitter, but modulators still succumb to the problems with FM, and FM signals.

I had one for a few months in my car until I got the Alpine. NEVER going back to a modulator. I only used the headphone output on my 5g Videopod, but it would've been better through the line level output through the dock connector.
