Product Details

Peripheral Universal iPod Adapter With HD Radio - PXAMG

Recipient of a 2008 CES Innovations Award, the PXAMG is the first interface ever to bring the iPod™, HD Radio™ broadcasting, and many other portable media products into the vehicle.

The PXAMG also brings the power of HD Radio broadcasting with the help of the Peripheral Electronics HD Radio Tuner (HDRT). Available separately, the HDRT gives users more channels, more content, in exciting new formats—all with no subscription fees. The PXAMG directly connects your iPod to your radio allowing you to browse your music, by Artist, Album, Genre, and Playlist from the radio controls. This direct connection eliminates the need for noisy FM modulated solutions, and also keeps the iPods internal battery charged (the charging feature is only supported by iPods that are 12 volt firewire charging capable, please see compatibility notes). The interface is expandable, by adding the HDRT you will receive digital radio stations that can not be received with a standard tuner. Experience HD Radio and hear FM in CD quality, and AM at FM quality!

Allows connection of any two devices: iPod cable, AUX cable or HD Radio Tuner (sold seperately).

Requires vehicle specific harness (sold separately).

Features:

  • In Most Applications Retains Original Vehicle Features – Advanced capabilities retain and all safety and convenience features tied to the factory system.i.e.OEM Satellite, Rear Seat Entertainment, and CD changers (please check vehicle compatibility notes)
  • Provides Multiple Entertainment Options – Additional auxiliary input connects MP3 players, satellite radio tuners, DVD players, navigation systems and other portable media to the vehicle.
  • Delivers Digital-Quality Audio – Direct connection to the factory radio ensures static-free, crystal-clear sound from the iPod and many other portable media devices.

    Comments about Peripheral Universal iPod Adapter With HD Radio:

    I suppose it was my fault for expecting more from this piece. It works for the most part, but not in the way I would have hoped. To control your iPod in a car with a navigation system is strange. 6 buttons numbered 1-6 are your controls and you have to remember that 1 = play, 2 = next, etc.

    I'm sure this is probably unique to my particular car but still disappointing. I find I normally just use it AUX mode and treat it like a 3.5mm cable instead and control playback through my iPod.

    Also, my newer iPhone won't work (playback OR charge) with it and even after a firmware update done by Abt's installers. I still experience occasional problems where my stereo simply does not want to work until I restart my car.

    I suspect each install is very car dependent so your mileage will probably vary.
