Our take on the USA SPEC Auxiliary Interface
Enjoy maximum possible sound quality when you play your portable music through your Volkswagen's factory radio. USA SPEC's innovative DF-VW adapter lets you connect your portable music player directly to your compatible 1998-up Volkswagen factory radio. Just plug the adapter cable into your radio's CD changer input, mount the interface box, and you're ready to listen to your tunes.
And the news gets better if you also have another sound source you want to hook up to your Volkswagen's sound system, the DF-VW provides a second set of connections for an iPod, satellite radio tuner, or DVD player. You can switch between sources with your factory radio controls. Warranty: 1 year.

DF-VW allows you to add two auxiliary inputs to the factory radio in select
Volkswagen vehicles. The adapter plugs into the factory system using the
supplied cable, avoiding wire
splicing and modifications. Since the adapter is controlled by the factory
radio, the available controls should be described in the factory manual.
Note: The adapter is
not compatible with vehicles that have factory navigation and DVD
systems. The adapter takes the place of the CD changer, so you cannot
have a CD changer and the adapter connected to your vehicle at the same
Mounting: The adapter can be
secured to any flat surface using the supplied mounting screws.
Connections: The adapter has
two auxiliary inputs (Audio Input 1 and 2) on the left side panel. Each input
consists of left and right RCA audio jacks. On the right side panel, the adapter
has a round 8-pin jack that interfaces with the supplied CAS-VW cable. The
cable's round 8-pin connector plugs into the adapter, while the rectangular
9-pin connector plugs into the factory changer cable. The rectangular connector
also has a grounding wire that must be secured.
