    no idea man, maybe just ditch the armrest aux port for the sake of simplicity? If you're dead set on having an aux in the armrest and can't figure out how to hook it up get a nice, long aux cord and re-run the cable.

    Re: So I bought a double din unit off of eBay...

    don't know if I mentioned but it's a 2007 scion tc. Also I purchased two Bazooka Tubes from a local dude selling on craigslist both of them work one is a 10inch and one is a 8inch, I am planning on installing the 8inch model into my trunk because I just like the way it sits more and has a built in amp which I still don't know if the amp works on it though :/

    The Radio Arrived today everyone! Love love love the way it looks out the box. (Pioneer AVX-X1500)

    Considering I mentioned the Bazooka box I am not looking to rattle my car by any means necessary I can not STAND! no offense but can't stand people driving down the street and all you hear is a rumble coming from the car - this is also another reason im doing the 8 instead of the 10. It looks like the Bazooka original speakers came with it because I took apart the 8" and it wasn't a brand on it, said void if tags were removed so I think it's all original, I was thinking about getting a new 8" sub but me and a friend did test out the speaker and it worked fine. I can not wait to install everything I am very happy to have all the parts finally here for this project.

    Re: So I bought a double din unit off of eBay...

    so thought i would give an update of the Pioneer unit that I installed, the unit looks awesome been using it for about a week or two now and i love it. I also did some work to my lights of the car all exterior but that's another story.

    So I bought a double din unit off of eBay...-rd.jpgSo I bought a double din unit off of eBay...-rd2.jpgSo I bought a double din unit off of eBay...-rd3.jpgSo I bought a double din unit off of eBay...-rd4.jpg

    and this piece which i was reviewing well looking at reviews for a long time I thought i would connect the power source to the usb port in the back of the pioneer to power the unit and have a extension for the aux port insert and i ran those two cables to my glove box in case i ever needed to trouble shoot the device and it works amazingly, i can now stream any song on my phone or Pandora through bluetooth well the radio is on AUX but device bluetooth.

    this is what i dont understand about trying to get your aux input to work, if you have a smartphone you will never use the aux, on the pioneers you can use the usb with a usb card reader and plug in an sd card, not sure about your limitation but I have an older avic 120bt and it accepts up to 16gb sd cards so i have 2 sd cards one inserted internally and the other one inserted on a card reader which connects to the usb, plus any music i have on my smart phone. I dont use the cd/dvd anymore but you can burn dvd disc with music videos or music and play it also that will give you another 4.7gb or 8gb on double layer.

    if using a video for sd cards you will need to reformat your videos after you download so the pioneer will read it.

    good luck

    I use the aux input due to the fact that my HU USB doesn't work with the new iPhones. I bought a bluetooth dongle that hooks into the aux jack, but I can notice a difference in SQ when using bluetooth over aux... Aux jack sounds waaaay better, maybe the dongle was just cheap. It's all just personal preference.

    you bought the iphone usb dongle right? and you bought the oem and not a cheap chinese iphone dongle from ebay (i've heard these are hit and miss)

    dongle will be better since you will be able to see the video in your double din and will also charge your iphone

    I don't have a double din, I have an olderish Eclipse HU. No OEM bluetooth. I was just saying it's OP's preference to try and use the aux jack because he wanted to. Maybe he doesn't have a smartphone that can hook into the HU, flip phones nowadays have bluetooth

    Re: So I bought a double din unit off of eBay...

    hmm... ok lol.

    anyways anyone interested in those bluetooth receivers from Istream they really do the trick if you could connect it to a power source and plug the cord into the aux insert. I hear a bit of a connection static sort of but nothing that bothers too much. I keep it hidden since I don't like any exposed wires.

    As for the Aux port in my armrest it was to do just this that im talking about but once i found out that the pioneer has a usb port that generates juice i gave up trying to use the armrest aux port all together - the whole point was to keep it looking clean and hidden bluetooth receiver to stream anything i want. Needless to say it's a success
