About the DICE iPod® Interface
A dilemma: you have all your music on your iPod, but your factory radio isn't designed for iPod use. Just install DICE Electronics' iPod interface — you'll be able to listen to all your favorite tunes through your car's speakers, plus control song and playlist selections right from your radio. And as a bonus, you'll add a handy 1/8" auxiliary input for hooking up additional sources like a Dock & Play satellite radio.
Just mount the compact hideaway box in a hidden location in your vehicle, and connect the included 40" harness to your factory radio's CD changer or XM satellite radio connection. Plug your iPod into the interface, and you can browse your music library by album, artist, or playlist right from the radio or with your steering wheel audio controls. The direct connection to your stereo gives you superior sound, and your iPod will stay charged while you drive.
Please enter your vehicle information or call an Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 to find out if this adapter is compatible with your vehicle. This adapter won't work with 2004 Toyota/Lexus factory radios with navigation, or with the Toyota/Lexus 2009 portable navigation option. You'll lose your factory CD changer or XM satellite radio once you've connected this interface.
