Hey... are there any factory units that I can swap with my factory that at least have an aux input? I know I could replace the unit for aftermarket but am curious on what my factory options are. Thanks!

I dont think there are any other factory radios available...aftermarket is the only route to go if you want a aux input

Carfreak is right, at least for the 2000-2006 year foci. Even the fullly upgraded stereos in the svt didn't have an Aux, but when cars were being built back then Ipods and stuff were just coming out.

I was using an iSimple PXDP ipod adapter on my stock 01 focus radio before i went aftermarket. It worked great. Look it up from PAC-audio.com. May be willing to sell it.

you may actually be able to do it with the Blaupunkt one. I haven't seen one in a while, but If I remember correctly it has the third blug on it that you can make an aux harness for or get one from peripheral electronix

For the Blaupunkt- doesn't it need the entire Blaupunkt system to work? For instance, I've heard if this with Bose systems and for my Expedition I have the Mach audio. If I ever wanted to change out a component, it would all have to be changed out. Also- I'm guessing the Blaupunkt just had a cleaner more powerful head? Does it have a CD player?

i dont think you would have to change anything extra out would just need to wire it and the harness in the focus 2000-2004 should plug right in from what im told

I'm definitely interested in your Blaupunkt. Is it true that I would need this because it has the CD changer control (to use for aux in and/or iPhone/iPod control)?

Also- want to double check if anyone has heard that a swap to blaupunkt would work with no problems/upgrading needed.

well, dont know how to wire it for that but from my understanding it is plug and play for the swapping it to your car. and i got some one wanting it already, sent me a pm a while ago. srry, if he doesnt end up getting it ill let you know.

I installed a Blau in my 05 St. Just needed harnesses for the car and the HU. Works great, but isn't compatible with the steering column remote controls.
