Re: New V50 owner, new lister. IPOD and SIRIUS Help please! (mgcarma)

No, there is no solution with all the features you list. Volvo will sell you an FM transmitter. The best solution available now is to find where your radio antenna plugs into the AFM module and wire in an FM modulator there.<p>'07 models will have a line-in jack in the premium stereo. Dension and DICE Electronics have been working on iPod/MOST integration for a long time, but even if they finally market one it sounds like the S40/V50 stereo is so integrated it won't be easy to hook it up.<p>No word yet what it might cost (or even how possible it is) to upgrade to an '07 stereo. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> You can be sure that if anything becomes available, people here and on the S40/V50 forum will be all over it.
