I drive a car without most of the add-ons that seem to have become standard in the auto industry. That’s not a complaint, but rather an observation, because the way I look at it, this just gives me a chance to add what I want to my car the way I want to.
And over time I’ve done just that. From complex tasks like adding an auxiliary input for my iPod, to things as simple as a suction GPS mount, I’ve been able to change my car in a way I like. That being said, when given an opportunity to test out a color monitor for my backup camera, I was very excited.
Just as a warning, before doing anything to a car you should do your research. Look up everything that needs to be done, how it needs to be done, and what you need to do it. Even then, you might be better off having somebody help you out.
For a few years now, I’ve driven a car with no direct cable for my phone’s audio, nowhere to plug my phone into the car’s system, no bluetooth capability, and not even a cassette player to use as an adapter. Couple this with my personal hatred for radio, and I’ve struggled to figure out a way to listen to my music (or podcasts) on long commutes – that is until now.
Once exhausting all of the options listed above, I began to think of other ways to play my phone’s audio in the car. My first thought was to just use the phone itself, it does have built-in speakers after all. After one drive it seemed like a less than optimal solution, and after one drive with the windows open I realized it wasn’t going to work at all. Then I looked into changing my car’s radio, or another part of my car, to be able to connect my phone. After looking up the process involved in doing so, as well as the price, I realized that too wasn’t going to work.
