Auxillary input on 04 excursion

Ok, I'm looking to add an auxillary input (use my blackberry for music) and I'm looking to see if anyone's got anything that works well out there with the factory deck. I'd hate to ditch the factory deck given the rear seat entertainment system and everything I've got in my 04 excursion.

Right now I'm leaning towards this system as it's one of the only decent looking kits out there that's not wireless. I've done wireless before and it's always horrible.

The iSimple TranzIt - Integration Kit for Any Make, Model or MP3 Player

Anyone else here try something similar?

Mavisky,

I think you might be out of luck with the PIE kit. I have looked for the same thing you are and everything I have seen says it will not work with a 04 X, with 6 disc changer and rear DVD.

I have an 04 X Limiten, 6 disc changer, rear DVD and I run a RCA to stereo 1/8 jack cable from the DVD aux input to the front seats for my blackberry and IPod. Not the best solution but it beats an RF modulator.

That's the same solution I'm currently using. Need to tuck it though as it currently just hangs down all redneck style.

Mine's a 2004 Eddie Bauer with the 6 disc and rear dvd.

I have the same solution right now. It works, and I need to get a longer cable to tuck it all away. Just not a priority right now either.

No DVD Aux Input

I thought the solution under dicscussion might work for me but alas I have no rear seat entertainment system (DVD that is) although there is the Headset and radio controls.

Anybody been able to get a decent interface to an '02 EX limited radio w/in-dash 6 disc changer?

Thanks, D

You should have an auxillary port on the back of the 6 disk changer. The way it works is the stereo has an aux port, changer plugs into that. The changer has an aux port, (for me the DVD plugs in), you might be able to plug your ipod, blackberry, etc directly into that. You will have to look at the back of the 6 disk changer. Good luck.

no external CD changer

I have not pulled the radio out of the dash but the radio has an "integral" CD changer, it is not an external CD unit. With this set up, you give up having a Cassette player (which is how I made the Ipod work on the Expedition quickly) to have the "convienence" of the in-dash 6 disc CD capability.

Did I mis-read your response? Do you think the radio has an AUX input that would have connected to the DVD unit if I had one?

I am not positive how the 02 setup works, but yes (for my 04). The DVD player is an Aux connection to the stereo, changer, etc. It all works together. If you don't have the DVD player, you might have an open aux input???
