Thanks! Found exactly what I was looking for:



From here: http://www.audiogear.com/Audio-Adapters-Miniplug.html

Their shopping cart does not work though, I emailed them. Cheap too only a few bucks.

I didn't want a big cable so this was perfect for me.

True leaders are not those who strive to be first, but those who are first to strive and give their all for the success of the team. They can be identified by the clarity of their vision, the strength of their actions, and the integrity of their intent. A true leader has the confidence to stand alone, and the courage to make tough decisions. A true leader has compassion, and is willing to listen to the needs of others. He does not set out to be a leader, but he becomes one by the confidence that he inspires in others. He commands the respect of his peers, and is humbled by the admiration of his followers. True leaders are first to see the need, envision the plan, and empower the team for action. By the strength of the leader's commitment, the power of the team is unleashed.

To use the AUX cable you have to select it on the radio/nav unit as the input.

Any thoughts AUX cable / CD Changer users?
The CD Changer and AUX use different ports - they will get along together.
