Do you have a link for that module? I'm not sure how they are wanting you to hook it up to the radio.

While I don't have Bluetooth in my car, I do have the aux mod from here Sylfex. It works great and it's cheap. The install took about 30 mins if I remember. The volume on it seems too low for my liking but it's fine for now. I'll run an inline headphone amplifier when I really want to fix the issue.

This kit may not work in your car without modifying your stereo. I have this kit and installed it in my 2004 6s wagon and had to modify the radio with a jumper to allow it to work. I have a thread on here that shows how I did it.

Give this a look see...

Does this send a better (stronger) signal to the deck vs the aux mod? I haven't been able to properly set my gains since I installed the amps due to the weakish signal from the sylfex mod. The cd player doesn't work in my 6 to run the test tones so the best that I could do is from the phone. Also, what kind of CD control does it need? Mine just doesn't take (or read for that matter) CDs. Not too concerned about it at this time but will eventually need to come up with something before the audio overhaul I have planned.

Kris, if you're a diyer I'd follow his link on how to get everything up and running to save 1/2 the money. It looks straight forward. If you're worried about the soldering, any phone repair shop should be able to do it for you on the cheap. I know my go to phone guy would be able to look at the pic and see what needs to be done and charge probably 10 bucks (if I didn't want to solder it myself).

I have both the auxmod and the grom. To be honest, I haven't ever really used the auxmod, but I know a lot of people love it. The grom unit just uses the CD changer/sat radio extension port on the back of the radio to emulate a remote mounted cd changer. Your current one needn't work for you to use this grom unit. I find the signal to be great, but I do need to make sure the volume is ALL the way up on the phone for the levels to be reasonably even across the sources. This works fine in my application as I use the bluetooth dongle connection and it has it's own volume separate from the rest of the phone. Thus, I never have to remember to turn it back down.

Hi,

They no longer make the Auxmod and I would really like one.

Because you aren’t using yours, would you be interested in sellling it to me?

Thanks,

Ross
