I have the standard 05 CD/Stereo played in my Hemi Ram mega cab, and
just got a Creative Zen Sleek 20 gig MP3 player. The hookup with a FM
transmitter is crappy at best (it went to 107.9 mHz) during the seek
to find a clear channel during setup). I want to wire the player
directly to to stereo using the headphone jack as output. I assume
this can be done, but need to know the pin configuration for the
connector. There is an unused smaller connection port next to the
one in service. Is this for the optional CD Changer, and can it be
Interesting dilema. Spend $80 (tax&ship) for add-on that will most
likely do the job just fine - (MP3's are a tradeoff on quality anyway)
or $150 up for an aftermarket . Does anyone know the output specs of
the stock player compared to, say a Sony? I mean frequency response
and range, not power. To get really good sound I am inclined to
replace the speakers before investing in a new head unit.
Right now I am trying to get by as cheap as possible. IMHO Road noise
kills any exceptional qualities of a high-end unit (except for bass)
Thanks for your responses.

Oh, ok... then in that case, you can do something like this:
This will still modulate your iPod audio over an FM frequency, but because
it's inline with your FM antenna, you're not competing with stray FM signals
outside of your vehicle.
Dammit... I've been found out! :)
Nah - their site is just quick and easy to find stuff, and link to it.
There's any number of places you can get a wired FM modulator from, and
probably even cheaper than that - but at least you get the idea.
