This BRAND NEW PXDP and PXHGM1 digital iPod interface package from Peripheral allows you to interface and control an iPod with your factory radio. On one end, it plugs into the 9-pin auxiliary input on the back of your factory radio and, on the other, it provides the proprietary iPod 'docking port' input.
A direct connection is FAR superior to the sound quality you get using an RF modulator OR cassette adapter device. A connection using the proprietary iPod connector is also superior to cheaper devices that connect through the headphone jack because it retains digital sound quality. It also allows you to control iPod functions from the radio, which the cheapo adapters cannot do. This is done by replicating the CD Changer functionality. The radios with the 9-pin auxiliary plug do not have the ability to display text. Consequently, tracks are displayed numerically on the radio, like a track on a CD.
** This is for 1995+ GM radios with the 20 and 9 pin plugs on the back. Further, the radio MUST be capable of controlling a remote CD player. (Single CD or CD changer.) Many GM radios have the 9-pin plug but that does NOT mean the radio is capable of controlling a remote CD player. A remote cassette player is NOT the same as a remote CD player and does NOT automatically mean you will be able to use this product. Most GM AM/FM/CD radios prior to 2001 (except some Corvette, Camaro Monsoon, Firebird Monsoon, S10 and Blazer applications) do NOT have CD Changer control capability. Prior to 2001, it was usually just some of the am/fm/cassette radios that had CD Changer controls. Please do your research BEFORE buying.
Use of this device will require you to disconnect any remote device that is currently connected to your 9-pin port.
Compatible with the following iPods:
This works in the following applications, but only for radios that have the 9-pin auxiliary plug on the back and are capable of controlling a remote CD player. This does not mean it will work for you just because your vehicle is on the list or just because your vehicle has a 9-pin connection. You MUST make sure your radio has the plug AND is remote CD control capable. Most GM AM/FM/CD radios prior to 2001 (except some Corvette and some Firebird Monsoon applications) do NOT have CD Changer control capability. Prior to 2001, it was usually just some am/fm/cassette radios that had CD Changer controls.

^ Some 2002 models marked with this symbol used the newer 24 pin plugs. This interface is not compatible with the new plugs. The changer plug was different.
Theftlock may be activated if you unplug your 20-pin plug. Removal of that plug is not required for installation of this product so we recommend you leave it alone.
