USA SPEC Auxiliary Interface
Connect a music player to your 1998-up Volkswagen factory radio!
Our take on the USA SPEC Auxiliary Interface by Crutchfield's Tim Sprinkle
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.
Please enter your vehicle information or call a Sales Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 to find out if this adapter is compatible with your vehicle.
I got this adapter to hardwire an iPod to my Jetta. The CD changer port for the Jetta was on the left in the trunk, behind a door that falls down...installing was a breeze. The adapter worked perfectly and solves the problems of a cassette or FM modulator in VWs. Defintely recommended.

USA SPEC Auxiliary Interface Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Compatibility: The 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 time.
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.
