So my wife just got a Scion, and it's got the proprietary Ipod connector in the console. I've done some poking around the net, and there's a bunch of companies that I've never heard of selling connectors for it. They're all $150+, so I'd rather get some opinions on them before I buy one. Does anybody have any experience with these connectors? What do you use? What do you like about it? What don't you like? Is it better just to use the AUX in?

i have a scion and it came with the ipod connector, but it also came with a cable to connect the ipod to the car. i didnt have to buy anything else. just plug the cable into the port in the center console and plug to my ipod and it was good to go. What scion do you have? and what year?

We bought a 2008 used. Maybe the dealership/previous owner parted the cord out for extra profit...

My guess is that the previous owner just lost it. Check the manual and see if it's referenced there. If it is, go back to the selling dealer and tell them that you were unable to locate it. They should replace it, if they're worth their salt.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Yes, it comes with a cable to connect to the dock connector in the console. Either contact the dealer, or look at some of the scion message boards to obtain a replacement - use that, not an AUX, to be able to control the iPod through the head unit. I have the tC with a nav system and love both - the iPod controls and the sound are fantastic.
