Can't find your exact car?

Just because you've got a factory radio in your Hyundai, doesn't mean you have to leave your iPod at home, along with the hours and hours of music you've loaded onto it. Just install PAC's uPAC-HY2 iPod adapter — it not only allows you to listen to all your favorite tunes through your car's speakers, it even lets you control song and playlist selections right from your Hyundai radio.

Your Hyundai radio must have an "XM" button to work with this adapter. You'll keep the use of your satellite radio, plus get a handy auxiliary input for connecting an MP3 player, game, or other source.

Note: Hyundai navigation receivers and receivers with internal satellite radio tuners are not compatible.

Product Highlights:

  • control your iPod on select satellite-ready Hyundai factory radios
  • auxiliary input for adding additional sources
  • iPod can also be controlled directly, giving you access to all your playlists
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Why would I need an iPod® adapter?

An iPod adapter allows you to connect your iPod to your car stereo, then access your playlists with your stereo's controls - a great idea for several reasons. One, you can scroll through your song titles on your stereo's larger display, instead of squinting down at your iPod. Two, you can route the adapter cable to your glove compartment or center console, so your iPod stays safely out of sight. Three, the iPod adapter keeps your iPod fully charged, so it's ready to rock when you leave your car. And last of all, some adapters bypass your iPod's internal digital-to-analog converter, using your stereo's superior DAC to turn your files back into music.
