Upgrading Stereo In 2005 Focus To Use Ipod

4 posts in this topic

Hi all, new to this forum! I have recently bought a 2005 (55 plate) Focus which I love, however I would like to somehow be able to set up my ipod to play through the stereo as this is where I keep the majority of my music.

The stereo in the car is the CD6000 with CDDJ button so am aware that a different stereo will be required, however will I be able to just do a straight swap if I get a different stereo ie from ebay? (Obviously one that fits the car!)

Also I don't have an aux connection in the glove box, is that a problem?

Thanks for any replies - I have been googling for days but not been able to find a definitive answer!

Not having the aux button is a bit of a bind for you but there are options.

You could use a Griffin iTrip adaptor which runs via radio transmission or upgrade the radio to one with the aux button and fit the aux lead.

I'll look on eBay for you later and point you in the right direction of a few options.

Thanks so much for this info, really helpful to get me started. Sorry for asking silly questions, but would I literally just take out the existing stereo and replace it with one with an aux button? What else would I need to do to get connected?

I think a replacement stereo would be my preferred option - I had an itrip type device before and wasn't very impressed to be honest.

Thanks again!
