View Full Version : Installing iPod jack to 2002 X-Star

06-01-2011, 11:55 AM
Any ideas? Boat I just bought has a CD stereo faceplate and nothing more. No aux inputs, etc. Also has the track and volume control by the swim deck. What is the easiest way to wire up the system with an aux input so I can run my iPod to the speakers? Has anyone done this that has any suggestions? THANKS! Looking forward to getting out in the boat for the first time this weekend hopefully.

If it has an FM radio the easiest and cheapest is to pick up an FM transmitter for your ipod.

The FM transmitters sound like crap. They have a cable that plugs into the antenna jack on the back of the stereo. It will also charge your ipod. Puts out a much better sound quality. I think I got it from radio shack

Thanks flipper, I actually found a thread with that same info from you using the search function. I am going to try that route. Thanks!
