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.

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.

Features

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.
