So I have been very slowly working on getting my iPod into my car in a nice fashion, and I am getting closer. So I am going to post some half-way pics.
First I had to buy the iPod connectors. They are pretty nice!
This is what the inside of it looks like:
and this is what you get to solder to:
To make things easier I just pulled all the pins out, soldered wires to the pins, and only put back the ones I needed. This made in much cleaner and easier. I have the grey wire on there for testing, to make sure it was all going to work.
Then I used a serial cable. It was from an APC UPS and is the perfect size for the plug, it works very well. You can see that I have put a bit of wire wrapped around the serial cable. This is so that if it gets pulled its not going to pull the plug apart.
And finally the finished product, it looks like I paid to much for it at a store, when it fact it cost me about $5
