I'm trying to find out myself. I contacted ABT and they don't have anything for our system. I have a friend that is an installer at a shop that is trying to find something that is plug and play for us.

Subscribing

I would love to be able to hook up my phone/iPod to the car. Way less of a PITA than carrying CDs. I think ShelbyGuy had this done a few years ago...

www.pie.net

Everything you need to buy for under 100.00 will get you the parts needed to tap into your stock stereo and end up with an AUX input jack for your Ipod.

Youre welcome.

It says on their site it will not work with the Mach 460, but it does, BOOM: http://www.chicagolandmustang.com/fo...93&postcount=3

I installed this on a friends 03' Cobra, took 25 minutes, sounds awesome.

We just put a PIE unit in 03GTGreen's car that has the IPOD connection. Sounds great. I have the auxillary connection one in my car so I can use my phones pandora, itunes library, and also have hands free phone ability.

Ford makes a part called TripTunes. Basically an FM Modulator but it attaches to the antenna and shuts off the frequencies you use (there are two of them available.) Since there is no outside interference the sound quality is great. It's under $50. You just have to splice into your stereo's power, mount an on/off switch which also has the 3.5mm stereo jack port, and plug the antenna in.

I use the PIE adapter. It works pretty good. I think the problem with 'incompatibility' is the power source isn't there on our stereos so you have to wire it into your hard line. Don't wire the power to your foglamp switch though >< supposedly defroster is the way to go.

Only complaint I have is unrelated... I get nasty electrical noise down the line when I charge my zune or phone while I'm trying to listen to it at the same time.

In the PDF I have in my post linked above, just use ShelbyGuy's instructions for constant power.

Electrical noise sounds like a ground loop issue (i.e. use a ground loop isolator perhaps).

I use the PIE thingie. Also, 03 and 04 head units are different and the dongle won't interchange between the two.

Smartest thing you can do is ditch the entire Mach 460 system. You will be much happier with a standard audio system than with the Mach 460 nightmare.

Go to a best buy with an audio install center, they have something that works. Dont ask me what, i had it done like a year ago in north carolina. All i know now is, i flip a switch, and listen to my iphone or radio or cd player. Sorry for being so vague but my records of the install and purchase have been lost so i cant really provide any more info than i already have. Im sure if you call best buy and talk to the audio guy who does installs there, they should be able to help. I cant remember what the exact cost was but it was over $150.

This is retarded. The 03 unit will work with the PIE unit. Its the Machs with the SAT button that wont.

Do you want the auxillary connection or an ipod connection? Let me know and I will tell you which one to order and can help put it in.

This is not that difficult. The incompatibility is wrong. My cd changer still functions with this adapter.

This is the only unit you should look at if you want to run an aux connection to the mach. It works flawlessly in my car.

Jesus.
