Can't find your exact car?

Just because you've got a factory radio in your Hyundai Sante Fe, 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 this iSimple 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 (if connected), 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. Be sure to check the "Details" tab to make sure this interface will work with your iPod.

Product Highlights:

  • control your iPod with the factory radio in select satellite-ready Hyundai models
  • 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

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This Isimple gives me access to all the music and podcasts on my iPhone while charging the phone. It works as described.

Pros: Go to YouTube and you can see the Isimple in use. Works as described. CD sound quality. Charges phone while using.

Cons: I was not comfortable doing the install after. Looked at the process, so I paid a local shop to do that.
