i have a nuvi 360 and a jvc deck in my car that has a audio input. i have the right hook ups to play my gps through my stereo already cause i use an ipod and hook it up to my system that way.
Now what i want to know is....
is there anyway to splice/modify the cord so i can hook up my ipod and gps so they can both play on my stereo at the same time?
You can use an adapter that sells at any electronics store. In has two inputs into one output. This will accomplish what your trying to do. I'm sure you can pick one up for less than $5.00 and save yourself the headache of splicing wires.
An adapter that has 2 inputs and one output would work but remember, If your playing the ipod and have the GPS routing you, the voice from the GPS will go over the music and you may not hear it well.
If they don't make one, you can buy the 2 to 1 adapter and then buy (maybe from Radio Shack) a 2 to one switch and splice it inline. This way you can just toggle the switch from one to the other.
I think you're trying to get the iPod to play sounds files and when the GPS wants to "say" something, you want the iPod muted until the GPSr is finished, no?
You need something like a Mix-It device in order for this to work properly.
if i can hear the directions clear enough through the music then there is no need to have the music mute or pause but i guess we'll see. im gonna try and find the adapter that others are talking about to see what happens
this adapter that i have is something that hooks up into the headphone jack on my ipod. which is perfect cause the only output is a headphone jack on my nuvi. it then turns the head phone cord into audio/video cables
im not sure if the adapters written about above are for this same method
