2006 PT Cruiser UConnect - Play music from Android phone?
Posted August 25, 2010 at 07:54 pm
I spoke to an mobile audio installer at Best Buy and he advised against changing anything from stock since UConnect is run through the rearview mirror already and everything works well. He said by the time I got everything I'd need to have satellite, bluetooth calling, bluetooth audio, etc. it would really run into the dollars. Nice he didn't try to sell me a bunch of stuff, but....
We just want to be able to listen to music from our phones. We have a Belkin FM transmitter, but there's always static and the sound is poor. We'd really like a wireless solution, but if a wired 3.5mm jack is the only way we can do this, so be it.
Is this possible?Does Chrysler have any kind of an add-on for their stock stereos?

They have an iPod connection kit at around $200 and other vendors sell one for $110 which allows a direct hardware connection. In both cases they provide an "aux" input for satellite radio or whatever, which you can connect to your headphone jack. Or for $15 you can buy a cassette adaptor if you have a cassette player.
Hi, Dave. Thanks for the reply.
No, no cassette player. I never thought I'd wish a low-tech solution on myself again, but that adapter was the simplest solution for years with other car audio systems! LOL
Ours is the stock satellite system with 6-CD internal CD changer and Sirius radio. It has the upgraded Boston Acoustics sound system and the UConnect system with the rear view mirror mic and controls. We've not had the stereo out to see what kinds of inputs it has in back and which are still free.
This morning, I was looking at these:
FM stereo modulator (not transmitter) with RCA jacks: http://www.installer....php?it=FMM-100
Dash mount 3.5mm input (includes 3.5mm to RCA converter): http://www.installer...em.php?it=PDM35
Until we know what our system has available, I guess we'll hold off. My hubby's not keen on disassembling the dash, so we're trying to find out the specs of the stock system.
