Add Apple Lightning device playback and charging to any FM stereo
The iSimple TranzIt LINK lets you connect your iPhone®, iPod®, or iPad® with a Lightning connector to your car's stock or aftermarket FM radio, and gives you on-the-go charging to boot.
Hard-wired FM modulator with on/off switch
The main modulator box connects to the antenna input on the back of your factory radio. You'll need to wire up the TranzIt LINK modulator box for power and ground, which includes incorporating an on/off switch that mounts discreetly on your dash or console. Once you've got everything wired up, stow the modulator box away in your glove compartment or some other spot where it's out of view but provides easy access, as you'll need to choose a dedicated FM station to receive music from your Apple device.
Just connect your device to one cable and go
You can listen to your Apple device through your car stereo simply by connecting the TranzIt LINK's Lightning connector cable to your iPod, iPhone, or iPad. The cable connects to the main modulator box which you've placed out of sight. You can enjoy your favorite music on the go and keep your newer Apple device charged as you drive. You'll be able to enjoy your favorite music apps and turn-by-turn navigation directions from the Apple device through your car's speakers, too.
The TranzIt LINK's onboard 18-bit dual-channel digital-to-analog converter ensures you'll enjoy excellent sound quality from your Apple device, without annoying interference or static. You can adjust the gain on the main modulator box to get the sound output level you desire.
Note: The TranzIt LINK does not provide device control or information display through your car's receiver.

iSimple TranzIt LINK reviews
This product states that it is adaptable to your year and make and then makes you buy adapters to install it. Poor performance as well.

Super easy to install on 1999 Goldwing. Small enough to hide easily. Works very well with factory radio. Have read that the iPhone connection breaks easily with time. Hopefully will avoid this by layering heat shrink tubing at connection. Time will tell. Initially very pleased though.

Worked great in my 2006 Jeep Wrangler! Drilled a couple of half inch holes in my aux switch area, then tapped into power from aux power port . Bought 1/2 inch geometric to protect lighting cable??

I bought this for my Porsche Cayenne Turbo with the bose system. I wanted to keep the factory stereo and amps but wanted to add my Iphone Pandora and also have a way to charge my iPhone. I've tried over the air modulators and they suck most the time. I was hoping this direct connect modulator would be way better and it was. It took a bit to get it all running but it was pretty simple. it has a volume gain to make it help match the volume of the other channels but I really didnt need to use it. It sounds great and I am happy with the item. Pretty darn clear and my pandora sounds awesome.
Pros: little complicated if there is no where to put switch and cable line. Charges my iPhone.

Great sound . Charging and music by via 1 cable. No static or interference whatsoever. No audible distortion. Easy install. Sound level just a little less than radio at full output, but this is typical of most FM modulators. Only downside is that the telephone does not play through your car's system (still have to use speaker phone function as opposed to headphone jack connection which will transmit telephone thru car's speakers).
