tsk the HU for aux does not have RCA. it's usually proprietary connector which will cost Rs.990 in case of the latest pioneers or you can do a jugaad and make one urself like in the diy thread.

this is the cable you need:

Hello dear. I've got your answer.

Even though your Blaupunkt HU has an aux in, it may not have the aux in adaptor cable. This has a yellow connector on one end and the other end is a pair of female RCA connectors.

I don't think you will have this cable. If you don't, you need to get it from your blaupunkt dealer. Should cost a few hundred.
Once you have the female RCA connectors on your deck, just go and buy a STEREO EP to 2 RCA cable. This is made by local brands such as AX and MX. I prefer MX. SHould cost you 20 to 30 Rupees.

After this, it's quite simple really. Just leave the cable connected and let the EP (earphone) side be handy. When you need to listen to your iPod, plug it in and switch to aux.

This has been discussed before. But to make it simple, YES, such a readymade cable is made by MX. It is about 50 rupees.

This is exactly what I do. I have a Blau Casablanca with an MX aux-in (EP to 2-RCA) Cable connected to it via the proprietary connector. The connector & cable look exactly like the cable in the picture VID has posted, except that the connector is yellow in colour like Sam has mentioned.

Hope it helps

True there is the FM transmitter which is available as an accessory with the iPOD..........BUT that comes at a price I think about 3k.......Babe on wheels is on a budget . This contraption is very useful alright.

ummm, the place where you are trying to connect is audio out. you need audio in.

If you see carefully it's written audio out.

which ipod is this? All I have seen have 2.5mm jacks (some call them EP). I have a few pods and all have this EP jack so I have to use adapters like in the link below to use my headphones.

Stereo Headphone Adaptor (2.5 mm Plug to 3.5 mm Socket Adaptor) - Proporta

OT: Sam BTW check out Senn's new PCX 450.

All ipods have 3.5mm. I have 1st and second gen Nano and 1st gen mini. all had 3.5mm headphones. i ended up breaking the headphones and were using my creatives headphones with them.

Definitely 3.5mm audio jack.
