Aux Input Jack on the 2008's

This is for the guys and gals that work at Ford dealerships - or those who might know - The car/truck brochures for the new 08's ( Escape and Superduty trucks) show pics of the new Aux input jack in the dash with IPods plugged in.

I was wondering if these jacks are just an additional component that Ford put together to work with the existing 05+ radios. I would like to know if Ford made them so thay are add-ons that plug into the CAN-BUS input on the back of the radios much like what P.I.E. and Peripheral Electronics do for Aux input. Then have the seperate AUX jack input located somewhere on the dash.

That would be one way to add the Aux jack to the dash and plug into the back of the radio.

Can anybody shed any light on this.

Thanks

Did you ever find any info out on this??? I'd really like to add my mp3 player to the car with a head unit that supports an aux input jack. I like the stock look also, thats why this is perking my interest.

I think these jacks are radio specific. I know my parents Edge's have the jack and the radio is a bit different from my 2007 focus.

My best bet for you is probably the ford trip tunes system. its an inline FM modulator (hooks between your antenna and the radio). I know that takes input through a 1/8" audio connector. Unfortunately, the triptunes advanced isnt available for the focus :/ (direct ipod control)

Oh, and when the edge's have an mp3 player connected i have to turn the volume up on both systems because its not amplified enough.
