I bought a Zune 80GB video/audio player. Its about the same as an Ipod I guess. I wanna know how I can hook it up to the Clarion CMD4 in my boat. Anybody ever hooked up a Zune before?:confused:

if it has an input you can plug it in through the input using a headphone jack(dunno what they are called) i beleive. There are inputs on back that you can buy a thing to make it like an input. You would use an aux on new units then plug in any ipod zune portable xm anything using the jack. i dunno what it is called just a double jack on each side one to plug into your ipod one to plug into your head unit. I have mine hooked directly into the jack

If you don't like Apple, go Microsoft ZUNE!

It's more like this cable. You plug it into the Auxiliary RCA jacks as CBryan said.

I believe the headphone jack is called a 3.5 mm jack.

So it sounds like the zune is a winner, is the rf modulator the only other option to play songs on the mc radio if there aren't 3.5 connections?
