Default Monsoon AUX input?

Any aftermarket adapters to add an AUX input or Bluetooth to an OEM Monsoon stereo?

A while back I think I found some kind of adapter that goes on the back of the unit that you plug into the antenna port and then plug the antenna into the adapter. So basically you have a nice aux port then.

That would be pretty nice if I could find what it was again. If not how about some Bluetooth adapters? I also don't want one that has to go in the trunk where the CD changer is. Though, if there is a Bluetooth one that can go there that would be fine too.

Tape adapters are fail... they ususally give a fuzzy sound to the music.

www.gromaudio.com has several adapters that plug into the factory system either behind the dash or in the trunk, allows you to play devices thru USB, AUX cable, bluetooth, etc

Thanks for all the links.

This one looks like what I would want the most.

Any retailers for it in the USA?

Though the Grom one does have bluetooth so I could just slap that in the trunk. hmm

Cheaper or just the same cost to purchase a new head unit which will interface with iPhones and iPods waaaay better. Pandora, hands free calling. Why spend $100 on cable adapters when I can spend $70 on a head unit that has all the bells and whistles...

Start here: http://www.crutchfield.com/g_300/All-Car-Stereos.html

If it works, this is a list of 169 stereos that fit my 2005 Jetta Wagon (which is identical to the 2004 Jetta Wagon). Have fun!

thanks

I actually went there after I asked the question.

I found that I would need a $80 adapter in order for the steering wheel controls to work. So even with the least expensive unit, I am back in square one having to buy an adapter.

At least for my wife's 2005 which has the monsoon and steering wheel controls it seems the adapters suggested here might be a better option.

I installed the 12 pin Denison from Enfig. Cost $70, works great!

You just need to determine if your car has 8 pin or 12 pin on the back.

Mine, 05 jetta wagon has 12 pin.
