    Can I do this?

    http://www2.visions.ca/catalogue/cat...27&menuLevel=1

    Is my deck, it comes with the plug for the ipod that plugs into the same place as where connect your ipod to your computer, but I wanna change that cord to that will fit where the audio head phones plug in(too distracting to change the songs on the deck while driving) can I do this?

    Alpine makes an AI-net adapter that ends in RCA jacks - then you use an RCA-to-1/8" stereo plug cable to connect to the Ipod. RadioShack sells those for $7.

    Oops I read it wrong, so your saying I buy the Net adapter thing, it fits in that cord slot? And then the end is RCA ?

    It fits into the round jack on the back of the Alpine, because Alpines don't have RCA jacks on them for aux inputs.

    Re: Can I do this?

    All I could find on Alpine site was http://www.alpine-usa.com/US-en/prod...model=KCE-236B its not the right year, and doesn't look the same either.

    Edit: I found this by going to my deck on the site and looking under accessories, but the plug looks weird and dunno where that plugs into.

    The plug that plugs into the deck is different than the ipod one, does that plug into somewhere else on the deck?

    yep. it plugs into the back of your hu into the cd changer port. it will only fit one place and only go in one way. then just change your source to the changer and it will play the audio from your ipod. this will not charge the ipod, only using the usb connection will.

    Instead of buying this http://www.radioshack.com/product/po...ductId=2428708

    I already own several 'cheap' ones of those, I don't wanna fork out 15 if the ones I have will be fine, or will there be a noticeable difference between using a better cable?

    Re: Can I do this?

    I got a cheap ai-net adapter off eBay that has a standard headphone Jack on the other end instead of RCAs. I think it was like 15 shipped. It's generic, but works decently. The ai-net does add noise to the system though. That's one reason I took my Alpine out o my car and got the Pioneer. Even with the KCA-420i I had background hiss.
