Oh yeah, it's the geek bling with flashing lights, just can't get enough.

Anybody know of a way to install some type of auxillary input (headphone jack size) for my mp3 player? No, it is NOT an ipod.

The FM transmitter i have sucks!!!!

Aux port

I just left Best Buy, there is a 139.00 cable setup that is just an fm transmitter that is installed in the rear of the factory radio. All you see is the port and a small on/off switch.

The guy at best buy said that even though it is an fm transmitter, there is no static. For the pathfinder installation and parts was going to be about 200 with tax.

The way I see it, might as well have a nice aftermarket stereo installed that includes an aux port.

Very true dude. Are you going to get it? I don't care what anybody tells me there is going to be some type of signal degredation between the transmitter and the antenna.

If you're going to spend $139 at Best Buy and have the radio pulled out anyway, why not just buy a new radio with an AUX and/or USB port?

Stock radio is awful for sound quality anyway, try Crutchfield for the latest deals.

Being a Bose with its 1-ohm impedance speakers and amps, it wouldn't be just an easy head unit swap, anyway.

I like the Bose, as well. My only complaint is they could have done a little better with the subwoofer.
