Easy quick installation

January 25, 2014

I purchased this product for a 2005 Chrysler Town & Country along with the appropriate cable (iSimple PXHCH3). The installation could not have been easier. Please read the notes on your radio type to be sure this cable is compatible with your vehicle. The documentation was great, and I had the entire system installed and working in 30 minutes. The sound quality is excellent, and now that it's tied into the stereo, the controls on the steering wheel work as well. This product works much better than the broadcast/chargers that plug into your cigarette lighter. It's just gives you more control of the device and a much better sound.

works as good or better than I imagined

January 2, 2014

worked great installed easy as pie. Very happy with my purchase. About the only downside was thatan extra wiring harness was needed for my audi and I felt the orig sales person should've let me know before everything was orig shipped. However the next person (cust serv rep) I spoke with comped me on the additional harness and was definitely quite helpful. Also the radio removal tool was shipped with only 2 keys to release the radio when 4 are needed and the keys seemed to be priced kind of high. wound up having to run to a walmart to buy 2 extra keys (was lucky wm had 1 last pair instock). Bottom line other than having to wait a little extra time to get everything needed to install when it was finally done I was /am very pleased.

Magic Box

December 23, 2013

I purchased this box for my newly acquired 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The product listing page had all the info right there but I was still a little skeptical, so I called Sonic to make sure it would do what it said it would! I ordered while I was on the phone, also purchased the pigtail wiring harness specified for my Jeep. Installation couldn't have been easier! Pop off the trim panel around the radio, then four screws hold the radio to the dash, remove those and pull out the radio, you don't even un-hook anything. The pigtail harness plugs into the back of the radio in the empty hole and into the box. Then just plug the cord into the other side of the box and cram it all in the dash. Mine fit perfectly between the airbag and the glovebox to the right of the radio. The hardest part of this install was fishing the cord thru the bottom of the dash to hide it. Mine looks great run from the bottom up thru a split where the dash and center console meet. I just velcro-ed the ipod to the dash right beside the radio. You will need access to the ipod because I have to push play on it every time I start the Jeep - won't come on automatically. But that's ok. Just glad I didn't hide it in the center console like I thought I might. Added bonus is that the ipod charges while connected! Great product if you don't want to change out factory radio. No issues with sound quality! Sounds better than my CD player. Highly recommend!

iSimple PxDP

August 12, 2013

Installation was simple, the the product worked great. I am fairly critical of items of this nature and all in all it works flawlessly. Occasionally transitioning from the radio back to Aux hangs a bit (1/10 times), but really it is just what I wanted.

Finally! I've got my tunes back!

May 5, 2013

The tape deck in my car bit the dust, and my fm transmitter was not so good, especially being in the city. This bad boy totally saved the day and did the trick. Installation was a breeze and the instructions are clear and very helpful. Make sure to get your vehicle specific harness separately as it is not included, but sonic will help you out with that, cause they're the best! Works great, and would def. recommend it if you're thinking about it.

Excellent Peripheral

April 19, 2012

All around great buy and value. Very easy to install...exactly like instructions. Make sure to search for any required wiring harness on the Sonic website and radio removal instructions for your car on the internet. Sounds excellent through car stereo. Installation took 30 minutes tops and didn't require any special tools.

iSimple IPod Car adapater

November 2, 2011

I just got this email directing me back to this website to fill out a review for the product i bought. Normally I would never waste my time doing this but I have to say the product works perfectly and its awesome. It charges my iPhone4 and plays music thru my factory stereo that sounds great. I have no issues with this product and during installation I blew a fuse when my wires touched by knife, but that was an easy fix. Great product, and I can still use my steering wheel controls to change songs on my iPod/iPhone4. -2003 Chevy Silverado 1500

Works great

September 25, 2011

I installed the iSimple in my wife's 2004 Beetle and it works great! In addition to the iPod cable that came with the unit I also ordered part number PX35RCA (from another web site - search Google) so that she can easily switch between her iPod and any other device with a standard 3.5mm (headphone jack) or RCA audio output. It's been installed for a week now and she's had nothing but good things to say about it (other than she wishes it had Bluetooth). Installation was a bit difficult, but that was more due to the fact that there's not much room for your hand in the center console of a an '04 Beetle. For any who are interested in the installation details, you'll need item # AB-VWT, but you'll also need to remove the black CD changer adapter from the end of the cable already installed in the car. Probably not that big of a deal if you disassemble the center console, but without doing that it's a bit troublesome for anyone without extremely small hands. For our installation we just cut a hole in the removable tray in the center console allowing the iSimple to sit in the center console (where the CD changer normally be) for easy access. That way she can easily switch between her iPhone and XM radio.

The product works exactly as advertised. I installed it in a 2005 silverado and it's really nice whith the steering wheel controls. Just pick what you want to listen to on the iPod or iPhone and cruise down the road useing your normal radio controls or steering wheel controls if you have them. Definitly worth the money.
