Multimedia Accessories

Carma Automotive can supply and fit a range of iPod and iPhone car adapters allowing for simple and easy connectivity to your factory fitted amplified or non-amplified sound system.

There are mainly 3 different types of adapters available that all give the user different levels of controllability and sound quality.

AUX Adapter

The auxiliary adapter (3.5mm Jack) offers a basic way of connecting your music device to the car’s stereo. With this adapter the user will have to control the music direct from the device itself. There is also no charging of the device with this option.

  • Most cost effective solution
  • Various cable mounting locations
  • Adjust volume of music through steering wheel controls (if fitted)
  • Dashboard cradle solutions to hold your device (optional)
  • Average sound quality
  • No charging of device
  • Limited controllability

CD Changer Connection

This adapter is designed to connect to the stereo’s factory CD changer port. In most cases, if you have a CD changer fitted you will lose this in replacement of the iPod adapter. The main advantages of this system are charging of the iPod / iPhone and crystal clear sound quality.

Dedicated iPod / iPhone Gateway

The dedicated gateway is a suitable solution if you require full control of your iPod / iPhone through the factory fitted head unit. This adapter gives the maximum features available such as full track listing, playlists and, in some cases, album art – all displayed through the head unit and instrument cluster (vehicle dependent)

  • Best sound quality
  • Charges device
  • Various cable mounting locations
  • Full control through OEM steering wheel (if fitted) (vehicle dependent)
