Re: i-pod shuffle question. deh 1500 pioneer
Actually it appears his Pioneer does not have an AUX port. It has only a radio and CD player.
You're best (cheapest) option would be the FM tuner. An FM tuner has nothing to do with what deck you have. It will work with any radio. You typically plug the FM tuner into a 12v outlet (cigarette lighter) and then a cable goes from the FM tuner to your music player (iPod shuffle in this case). Next, with the FM tuner off, you find the radio station with the cleanest static. You want to be able to hear no music and dont want it to be choppy. Then you turn on/plug in the FM tuner and set it to that station. Then plug in you iPod with a cable to the FM tuner and play the music.
There are some FM tuners that will automatically find the station with the cleanest static, so just make sure to know how the one you buy operates.
If arent pleased with the results of the FM tuner you can buy a new deck that has a 3.5mm aux port (same size used for headphones) and buy a cheap 3.5mm male to male cable. That would give you cleaner sound. The next best thing after that would be connecting an iPod using a USB cable. But that the best sound quality comes from CDs.
