Looking for a way to connect the audio from your DVD system, satellite radio tuner, or portable music player to your car radio? No worries, the Scosche FM-MOD01 FM modulator offers an inexpensive solution. It converts the audio signal into an FM signal which will play through any factory stereo — no auxiliary input needed, all it takes is an FM radio!

The 40" power/ground wire has an in-line On/Off switch (which can be mounted in a convenient location). Connect your vehicle's antenna lead to the FM-MOD01 and run its 21" antenna cable to the antenna jack on the back of your radio.

Just plug your source into the FM-MOD01's pair of RCA inputs and tune your FM radio to the selected frequency. You can listen to the audio signal from just about any source — a videocassette or DVD player, MiniDisc, CD, or MP3 portable, anything with a mini-jack or headphone output. A switch allows you to choose between two different modulation frequencies (87.9 MHz or 88.3 MHz) for the best possible reception in your area.

This is a great product for the money. I've used several wireless ones in the past and none of them worked well as well as this wired one. This was such an easy set-up. I really wish that I did it earlier. Thanks for the help Crutchfield.
