Overview: DPX Auxiliary input converters by PIE (Precision
Interface Electronics) are designed to convert the CD Changer port of the OEM
radio (with CD Changer controls) into an auxiliary input. Devices such as Satellite
Radios, DVD Players, VCRs, MP3 Players, and Game Systems can be added to the OEM
radio without an FM Modulator. DPX Technology maintains full function of all factory
steering wheel and rear seat controls.
Compatibility: The BMW-AUX allows you to add an auxiliary
input to the factory radio in select 1995-up BMW vehicles. The adapter connects
to the 3-pin and 6-pin CD changer cables found in the OEM CD changer location
(even if there was no OEM CD changer), avoiding wire splicing and modifications.
