Does this option also include an aux jack for an iPod? I know that the standard CD AM/FM player has one.

Thanks,

Scott

Hmm thats odd, seems as though the MP3 jack only come with the "base" stereo head unit. Loking at the pictures in my brochure there seems to be no AUX jack on the other stereos.

If someone know different please correct me.

Xtreme is correct.... go figure! I guess they assumed that if you have a 6 disk mp3 cd player, you wouldn't need an ipod. The greatness of the aux jack (for me) is I can plug anything else into it while chasing... weather radio, ham radio, etc.

Only the base level stereo has the Aux jack. If you’re looking at attaching an iPod, Mopar has an official iPod connector that allows you to use the factory audio controls to play music from the iPod. It appears the PDF is too large for me to upload it to the forum so ill copy & paste the text from the brochure.

Mopar Authentic Accessories has a solution that allows you to fully integrate your iPod® with your vehicle audio system.*

It’s a factory-engineered solution that provides everything you love about iPod … right inside the vehicle you love to drive. And once mounted in the docking station, all iPod functions are directly-connected to your vehicle’s audio controls. That means no hassles. No limitations. Just fun. In addition, you can use your multifunctional steering wheel controls to browse through your iPod collection – playlists, titles and artists – all viewable on your radio face display.**

* iPod Integration Kits by Mopar are compatible for iPod with dock connector for select 2005 and newer Dodge, Chrysler and Jeep vehicles. Contact your dealer for information on compatibility with previous model year vehicles. iPod with dock connection is required. iPod sold separately.

**Ability to access and display iPod collection data varies with radio model hardware capabilities. See your salesperson or service department representative for the complete list of available Mopar radios and their capacity to interface with iPod.

The iPod Integration Kit by Mopar is covered under DaimlerChrysler’s 3-year/36,000-mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty or Mopar’s 12-month/12,000-mile Limited Warranty, whichever is more favorable to the customer.

-- Page 3 ---

Simply dock your iPod in the custom port located in the glovebox and you’re ready to go. With this simple “plug and play” hook-up, your iPod stays securely attached, out of view and continually charging – even as it’s playing. Using your iPod in your Dodge, Chrysler or Jeep® vehicle is just as easy and convenient as using your iPod alone.

The iPod Integration Kit is available for select Model year 2005 and newer Dodge, Chrysler and Jeep vehicles. Unlike aftermarket broadcast transmitters, true iPod integration means there’s a physical connection between the car’s stereo and the iPod, resulting in optimal audio quality.

While this isn’t available for the Caliber now, I anticipate it will become available soon. Rather then running the attachment cable into the glovebox, it could be routed into the storage area located in the arm rest.

Thanks

I doubt it; IMO the Mopar website could use a complete overhaul.
This is something that was sent out to dealerships last month.

If you wish, shoot me an email @ [email protected] and I can send you the PDF.

Upload limitations prevented me from uploading the entire file.

How much is this going for? Does the pdf file have pictures? My wife wants to play her pocket computer music and her mp3 player. These can't "dock" in the same area as an Ipod.
