As with my Subaru, my wife’s 2004 G35 doesn’t have an auxiliary input for hooking up an mp3 player. After finally getting fed up with not being able to hook up my tunes when in her car, I ordered a PAC AAI-NIS2 and did a little dashboard surgery. Pulling the stereo out of the G35 is more involved than with my Subaru, but these directions guided me through the process without incident. All told it took a couple hours to pull the dash apart, remove the stereo, install the PAC, run the cables where I wanted them, and button everything back up. I also installed a ProClip angled mount along with the padded swivel holder for the iPhone while I was at it. Now the iPhone is securely mounted and piping tunes into the G35’s factory deck via the SAT input. Hopefully I will never have to this again. Auto makers seem to have finally caught on.

It’s funny how long it took them to catch on though. My car doesn’t have the aux port readily available and I had to go through the same process as you – ripping apart the dash and then reconstructing it. Not fun.
My friend recently purchased a new car and it was interesting to see that some have adopted the port across their line of cars and some manufacturers are still… well, far behind the times.
is there any interference when you use the iphone via the aux input on the g35? i’ve been hesitant to get the jazzy engineering one, because every input solution i’ve tried with the iphone has caused interference.
Great article, just wandering if there was a reason you used the PAC AAI-NIS2 instead of the PAA11NIS (http://www.crutchfield.com/S-hGhu6Lyro2b/App/Product/Item/Main.aspx?I=581PA11NIS)?
The PAA11NIS controls the iPod/iPhone from the stereo and comes with the iPhone plug+ charges the iphone while it plays adapter where as the PAA11NIS2 doesnt seem to do any of those things?
